My two toddlers are beginning to get picky with almost everything I cook these days. Does anyone have any good recipes for kids.

Man, maybe you should ask them what they will or won't eat.  I have not been to toddler stage in 11 years, so I have no clue.

I have a really picky daughter so I feel your pain. I don't have any recipes. She likes ham and salami. She won't eat bread. She does like spaghetti and some chicken dishes I make. I just play around a lot and try to get her to ty new things, even though it's not easy. Good luck! :)

Get them involved in the preperation. They are more likely to eat it.

i don't have any recipes but try making more finger friendly foods... most toddlers are just learning to use fork/spoon so being about to eat with fingers encourages more eatting ... ( at least this was my how i got my kids to eat things... although DS 11 is still kind of picky ) Hope this helps .

My suggestion is to continue to offer things even after they've said they don't like them. I can't remember the exact number, but it takes something like 12 tries to start liking something that you didn't like at first.

My DS will eat nearly anything, but DD is picky. I make sure to give her something I know she likes alongside the thing she's not crazy about and always have her take at least one bite of the thing she doesn't like.

Oh! And sometimes my DD feels better about eating it if she closes her eyes! LOL

I have no advice, we've tried everything and nothing has worked for our little group.

We keep the veggie baby food pouches on hand though, most of the time that is the only way to get veggies into my youngest
