 I watch my nephew during the week and he cannot have dairy products as he is lactose intolerant. He is also a picky eater. He is 2yrs old and sometimes it is hard for me to get him to eat at mealtime. What do you Ladies suggest? THank you for your help!

I serve waffles with the cinnamon-butter/margarine, sliced apple, and a banana with a dab of Peanut butter And jelly -for dipping.

I'll try that! I tried pancakes thinking he would love them, but he wouldn't even touch it! Maybe with toppings he would want to even more!

I hide veggies in food.  Bananas, chocolate (melted or powdered), avocado, and soy milk can be blended together into a chocolate banana smoothie (you can't taste the avocado).  Puree steamed carrots and add them to pasta sauce for extra vitamins.  Does he like to dip things?  You can cut chicken into fun shapes and let him dip them into various dips.

Peanut butter & jelly, chicken nuggets, my picky guy loves Dr Praegers spinach and potato cakes, avocado, hummus with cut up carrots, celery, cucumbers and lightly toasted pita bread, pasta and when I make my sauce I also cook up some veggies purée them and add them to the sauce, you can serve turkey meatballs on the side. Lots of fresh fruit

Fruits and veggies. Let him pick them out and maybe help in some way. It may help him want to eat more if he helps in the process
