  • My toddler is 19 months, really likes any kind of fruit, her fav is canned mandarine oranges, but she also always eats bananas, apples, peaches, grapes, blueberries, blackberries, navel oranges, cherries, pineapple. She also likes yogurt, plain pasta or with a little parm cheese, broccoli (I know weird), corn on the cob (cut off), she likes beefaroni, cheese sticks, alfredo, fish sticks, tater tots, tuna casserole, hot dogs, PBJ but only Apple Jelly, she likes buttered toast sprinkled with a little cinnamon and sugar, and the fruit & cream oatmeal (I always make that if we are going out and about before lunch because it will hold her over), she likes scrambled eggs with melted american cheese, mini bagels with strawberry cream cheese, Danon drinking yogurts, handy snacks (although I only let her have them once in a while), raisins, dried cherries and blueberries, mac n cheese (I sneak in peas).

  • dd will eat anything. her favorite though, due to her older brother putting it in her brain, is chicken nuggets. ds doesn't like anything but starches and carbs. basically, chicken nuggets, pizza, hot dogs, crackers, cheese, mashed potatoes, peanut butter....and that's about it on the "only food he'll eat" list. usually i make my own pizza and hide veggies in there, and/or give him V8 Fusion

  • Eggs lol. My daughter has always loved eggs ever since she could eat solids. She is 4 now and for the last 2 years, if you ask what she wants to eat, the answer is eggs. I swear if I let her, we'd go through a dozen eggs every 2 days. But I try to limit it. I'll tell her I'm not cooking eggs again, pick something else. Also chicken nuggets, fish sticks, noodles. Her new thing is green beans. If I ask what she wants for dinner she'll tell me roast and green beans or chicken and green beans, ect... Your right it changes so fast on what they want and like, its hard to keep up sometimes.

  • My kids would eat almost anything but as they get older they are starting to not like somethings. But otherwise they eat a fairly healthy well rounded diet.
    I will hide veggies in things too though. I will puree spinach, onions, peppers, carotts, zucchini and almost any other veggie into sauces for pizza and pasta. I also make my own meatballs and burgers with pureed veggies in them too. One time I put too much spinach into a turkey burger (being that it's lighter in color than beef it was especially noticable! lol) and ds asked me mommy why's it green? He put it down and wasen't going to eat it. Thankfully he loves spinach (thanks popeye! lol) so I told him I put spinache in it and he said, oh ok and chowed down! lol
