Picky toddler foods?

My DS refuses to eat anything but mac and cheese, and jelly sandwiches. Ok, so that is a slight exaggeration, but I feel like that is all he eats. Any suggestions for a picky eater? Must be hand friendly as he doesn't like to use utensils either

We just realized our little guy loves cheese and crackers. It is simple and easy.

The other issue, is that it varies from day to day. Some days he'll eat something new, and then a few days later, he hates it Its driving me crazy!

Well, so far we're just a bunch of moms with picky eatin' kids. I can give you tips on that, but you probably know all there is to know about that already!

Re: Picky toddler foods?

My DD who is almost 17 months old, is a picky eater too..
I found that she loves shelled soy beans, blueberries, cheese cubes,
flat bread with hummus rolled up,
also creme cheese and wheat bread..
I make her grilled chicken and cut it up and put a little sauce on it,
I hope this helps...

2 ritz crackers with cream cheese in the middle
noodles
chicken tenders
1/2 slice of bread
yogurt
slices/cubes of cheese
cereal
waffles

bagels or bagel bites to go
oatmeal(fed to her)


Will he drink food- such as a yogurt drink thing, pediasure, smoothie or ovaltine?

Re: Picky toddler foods?

DS has good day and bad days when it comes to eating
Sometimes even the stand by's don't work. I've heard that taste buds change every 3 weeks so, i offer new foods whenever I can
