My 15 month old will eat hot dogs, chicken nuggets/strips, and fruit consistantly. He will go through spurts of liking macaroni, meatballs, noodles, eggs. Does anyone have any other ideas on feeding my son that isn't hot dogs and chicken nuggets all the time? thanks.Answer Question

Here is a food pyramid, so you have a general idea of what your child should be eating: http://www.hc-sc.gc.ca/fn-an/food-guide-aliment/basics-base/quantit-eng.php
Hotdogs should be a rare treat, maybe once a month. Rather than chicken nuggies, make baked tofu nuggies. Fruit is great, make sure it is in many colors. Kiwi has more potassium than banana and more vitamin C than orange juice.
Kids love to dip: veggies in hummus or salad dressing; whole wheat pasta and steamed veggies in marinara or cheese sauce.
You can make a smoothie: frozen banana, frozen blueberries, kale (loaded with calcium and iron) orange juice or kiwi (vitamin C to increase the absorbtion of iron) and yogurt.
Other great foods at this age: avocado, tofu, baked sweet potato, cooked beans and lentils, brown rice,
