  • agree with first poster.. Just offer new foods periodically.. But don't force them to eat anything or beg.. It just creates a picky eater and a battle not worth fighting..

  • Can s/he have cheese? If so you can try putting cheese in it to change the flavor. Maybe mix bacon or other foods with it.

  • Don't force it. Just keep offering them, and try them in different ways. Mixing them into other things is good. He/she may develop a taste for them later, but there's certainly no reason he HAS to eat them now.

  • I don't see why he HAS to eat eggs. My daughter is two and she rarely eats eggs. I don't think she likes the way they taste. You can't make him eat it if he doesn't like it, so don't force it.

  • Ketchup. lol

    Keep offering them cooked different ways scrambled, poached, hard boiled, "fried" on an electric skillet with no grease with hard yolk or slightly soft yolk.

    Add bacon and/or cheese and/or bell peppers to scrambled eggs to change texture and flavor. Or like I said at first give them ketchup to dip scrambled eggs in... Not my cup of tea but my son and nephew swear it's like ambrosia. lol

  • My 9 year old doesn't eat them and my 3 year old eats them in grits and on a sandwich or biscuit. I would just keep offering it, without pressure. Some people like eggs, some don't.

  • Just keep offering them every once in a while. some people just don't like eggs.

    I have 2 who will eat any type of eggs, with or without cheese, boiled, scrambled, fried. And my youngest will not touch them if his life depended on it. He just doesn't like them (and neither does DH.) He'll eat french toast, but that's about it.
