Who is this picky boy and what did he do with my son?!

At least I can always fall back on PB&J. Ugh. He used to eat everything. Now its almost nothing it seems. What I wouldn't do to get a vegetable in him. Although today I put spinach in his peanut butter banana oatmeal smoothie and that worked out great. But he can't live off of smoothies :/

I hear ya! My 20 month old pretty much only eats banana's, graham crackers and anything chocolate. It drives me bonkers. At daycare she says he's an awesome eater, but at home.. yeah... not so much.

I'm there too. Mine at least likes most fruit but even that is hit or miss lately. He used to LOVE cheese and won't hardly touch it now, other things are hit or miss. He used to eat everything. He's 2 yrs 3 mo and this has been getting worse since he turned 2.

I'm glad I'm not the only one. I wonder if they get bored with what we're offering? Sometimes he'll try a new food and then scarf it.

We told DD1 that she's old enough now to try a bite of every new food and tell us whether or not she likes it. There were a few battles (that we lost) but now she will eventually try a bite of everything. I'm bored so have been making new recipes and have found she's willing to try, but then spitting the mess out if she really doesn't like it. Dinner would be so much nicer to clean up without the chewed up food on the plate!

I hear ya! Mine was an awesome eater of everything until she turned 2. ...but I've stood my ground pretty well and offer lots of choice at meals, but don't cater to what I know she'll eat. There have been a few meals where she's drunk some milk, and been pretty hungry for the next meal and whiny in the meantime ! I still struggle at following through (we always offer fruit after meals, so she'll generally at least have some banana, apple or grapes) but it seems to be paying off.

Although I've given up on my efforts to only offer veggies at afternoon snack...she so rarely ate them and I resented using precious naptime to prep them.

DS1 does the same thing! He chews it then takes it out of his mouth and tries to put it on my plate! Ew! I've recently been trying to make new meals but I don't think he's liked a single one. So far the spinach/banana/oats/peanut butter smoothies have gone down well so he is getting some kind of veggie...
