fits over a salad?

My 2 yr old will throw a fit if somebody else gets a salad and she doesn't. She also prefers salad to meats. I've never known a 2 yr old to love salad. She's not a typical kid. She pretty much hates everything the kids normally love and eats things other kids normally hate. Anyone else have a strange eater?

  • mine ever since baby food had preferred veggies and fruits. she is 5 now and the same way still.... also doesn't eat much meats or anything like that. She does like eggs, fish (i guess that counts as a mean though) and peanut butter so she can still get her protein! I'm not complaining a bit- this is much healthier! My 3 yr old is the typical child who would rather eat hot dogs and junk and hardly touches a veggie so ya it is totally not even a trait shared by siblings!

  • Wow a two year old who likes salad. My 1 year old will eat anything and everything we put in front of her but not enough teeth for salad yet....

  • my 4 year old LOVES asparagus! He begs for it at dinner! But my kids are generally really good at eating. The only thing so far I have found they truly don't like is brussel sprouts.

  • My 3 year old loves salad. She cried at lunch for more broccoli and I was out! My dd loves all kinds of seafood (shrimp, crawfish, squid, frog legs) and mostly veggies. I have a hard time getting her to eat meat; she would rather a veggies or fruit.

  • Mine is one.

    He hated french fries, nuggets, mac and cheese, ice cream, potatoes...
    He loved oatmeal, cream of wheat, malt o meal....

    He now can eat a few more things. Still really doesn't like most of those. LOL

  • Yeah, lol... actually my kids do that too. They started at a young age. They are like me and love to eat a salad before a meal or as a meal, lol. Everyone always comments on it while we are out at restaurants. :)

  • Oh yeah, he will eat frog legs, shrinp..

    When we eat out, he wants a surf and turf platter with broccoli or asparagus.

  • None of my kids where ever fussy eaters, I think because we eat a wide varity of differents foods.
