My 3 year old will eat stuff like cookies or ice cream by herself.

Hi Gisele,

My goodness... you sure are dealing with a bunch of issues with feeding!

Wed, 06-22-2011 - 10:18pm 3 year old is the same way with the snacks. If she doesn't want to eat, then I don't make her and she will eventually eat before bed by herself. It could be b/c she is daughter gets like that with not wanting to walk and be held (it makes me crazy).

My 18 month old loves veggies and fruit, but not a big meat fan. I just always offer whatever we eat, even if I know she won't eat it. Maybe he just doesn't like mushy foods. My kids won't eat anything with a soft texture, like squash and stuff like that. Try hard carrots, instead of cooked, you can make zucchini and sweet potato chips in the oven. Getting kids to eat is so difficult, but as long as they aren't starving or eating oreos all day, they eventually get everything they need. Also, if you can, start a garden. My oldest daughter doesn't like veggies really, but if she can pick them from our garden, she will eat green beans, sugar snap peas and tomatoes right out of the garden! Good luck!
