@Kimmers I’m trying to remember where E was at that age... E is a good eater too but definitely has her times where she doesn’t want to eat whatever we’re having and that’s okay. I feel like it doesn’t matter as long as you’re offering healthy stuff and routinely trying to give the same or similar things as you guys eat. She will come around eventually to what “family dinner” looks like and want to eat what you have on your plate. A couple things we have had success with: -having her “help”, this could actually be her helping like stirring, picking things up and handing them to you, talking about the colors and what things are. Or it could just be her seeing and being in the room—E loved to sit in her high chair next to me while I was cooking and I would hand her different things to munch on. So sometimes she was more likely to eat dinner things if I gave them to her like that—like munching on a corncob while I cooked the rest of the food vs putting it on her plate later. Now that she’s older she will “help” me cook and eat a ton of random things while I chop that she probably wouldn’t touch on her plate like salad or raw mushrooms. -dips. E looooves to dip things. Can do ranch, ketchup, mustard, marinara sauce, hummus, pesto, whatever y’all have around. She thinks it’s fun and you can expose her to a ton of different flavors through sauce. I even got E to eat broccoli recently if she dipped it in ketchup which was a hard no before even though she likes lots of other veggies. -the time of day is a big wall too. Dinner time is a stressful part of the day. Everyone is tired, she’s had a long day too, it’s more “pressure” than the other meals. I feel like as long as she is chilling during dinner it’s okay if she doesn’t eat a lot. Everyone feels differently about this but for us, if she won’t eat a single bite, I feel like she’s too young to not offer an alternative. But it also depends on your kid and you’ll know if she’s just playing you for the blueberries every night. I do tend to always give her a variety plate with what we’re having plus a few other standbys. So if we’re having tacos, she’ll get a little meat, a mix of rice and beans, and some cut up tomatoes or fajita veggies or whatever plus maybe some orange slices. If she only eats the tomatoes, oranges, and a tortilla, okay. I encourage her to try other things on the plate but if she says no, whatever. Plate goes in the fridge and we try again tomorrow. Maybe at lunch the next day she eats all the rice and beans.
