Picky Eater? Is your 2 year reluctant to try new foods?
Elizabeth_WebMD_Staff posted:
Two year olds can be pretty picky and reluctant to try new foods.

My friend is struggling, with a capital S, to get her son to try anything new. He will only eat peanut butter and jelly and "squeezey" fruits and veggies! I must have offered him 10 different things the other day and all I heard was "Nnnnnnnooooooooooo"!

Are you struggling to come up menu ideas?

Share your kiddo's favorite food and any suggestions you have on trying anything new!

Alphabet noodles in butter, chicken Rhamen noodles,light canned fruit, red bean and rice mixs, vannila yogurt, cut-up hot dogs, turkey lunch meat, pretzels, crackers, cheese slices, instant oat meal, chicken nuggets, grapes, bananas, mashed potatoes, breakfast sausage, ravioli in light sauce and chocolate milk. These foods got my now 4 year old son happy & healthy and the list keeps growing and growing.
