Is your toddler having a picky month like mine?

My kids are normally good eaters, but this month both of them have decided they only like about five foods: eggs, cheese, bread, carrots, and apples. Agh! LOL

Since DH is on a graveyard schedule right now, it's just me and the girls eating together...so eggs for breakfast AND dinner? Why not? ;-) haha

  • my son has been picky since the age of 2 and he is now turning 6 soon...slowly he is coming out of his picky little shell. What a friend told me was to look at what he eats during a whole week not just that day...

  • Thanks ladies! It's nothing new for my kids to be picky (and the pediatrician once told me, "if all she wants to eat is bread, she'll eat enough of it to feed her needs!") but it still gets to me after a while. I can't imagine eating only five foods! LOL

  • Dear goodness yes. All she wants to eat right now is oatmeal and Dora fruit snacks and McDonald's and waffles and sweet tarts and cookies. She will not TOUCH veggies that she once could not get enough of. She used to LOVE her "bean beans" (green beans) :) but one day she wouldn't have anything to do with them. The only way I can get veggies in her is the V8 Fusion juices. She loves 'em!!!
