Q.

fussy toddler

I am at my wits end - my toddler is 3 and a half years old and she will only eat certain foods. She has seriously got to be the fussiest kid around. she wont even try anything new at all and just says I dont like it. she wont eat anything off the braai and only eats fishfingers, chips, ham, bacon, cucumber, cheese, toast, hot dog, apple and banana and spaghetti. what should i do i have tried making it fun and doing faces etc but to no avail.
will it get better?

she sounds just like mine lol. Mine only eats weetbix, cocopos, milo cereal, spaghetti, viennas, bread / rolls, fishfingers, chicken, rice (only with tomato sauce), spaghetti, 2min noodles, youghurt, and maybe half an apple. That is it! She refuses to touch vegetables of any kind.

I have tried to give her and she makes her self sick. I have spoken to many people about this and the advise was give her vitamins and at least she is eating lol

Mine won' t wear new clothes - don' t know which is worse.
Try not giving too many choices with food, sometimes when she may be really hungry and will eat what is served.
