Am I the only lucky one?

I see so many posts on here about picky eaters. My child won't eat this, can't get him to try that. I have a 17 month old son that eats whatever I put in front of him and I never had to fight over it. Don't get me wrong, I'm not complaining, just wondering if I'm the only lucky mom.

  • My daughter was like that at that age. But a lot can change as your child gets older.

  • my 12 month old is the same way. but honestly, all my kids were until they turned 2. then they suddenly became picky, so i think its a phase that likely most kids will go through. my oldest is 4 and has surpassed it, she's not picky at all. but she sure was at 2.

  • My first was like that. He would eat anything and everything! My second was my picky eater. So I was lucky once!

  • My son had texture issues but hasn't been that bad in the picky eating either.. I think I was lucky he never took a pacifier and potty trained very easy compared to many kids out there..!! but he also had colic, sleep issues and is very anxious already at 3.. I think we all have a little to deal with in different areas..

  • My son is picky. My daughter eats almost whatever I make for her. I've only seen her not eat like 3 things I made. It's like night and day.

  • My kids were the same, ate anything and everything you put in front of them. That never changed as they got older.

  • All 3 of our boys have always eaten anything I've given them. They are all older now and love to help me cook, and will try anything.

  • No, my 19 month old eats pretty much everything and loves it. He even eats broccoli.
