Getting my son to try anything new is like pulling teeth. He will only eat a handfull of things, no matter how much different foods we try to expose him too. He was a great eater, and would try anything until about 18 months.
He is now 2 1/2, and this is all he will eat:
Mac and Cheese (I have even tried to sneak things in his mac and cheese, such as ground beef, small chunks of ham, veggies etc...but as soon as he see's anything other than his plain ole mac and cheese, he wont eat it!)
Bread with butter (again, Ive tried putting a thin layer of pb or cheeze whiz or jam...as soon as he realizes that anything other than butter is on it, he wont touch it)
Small hamburgers from Mickey D's.
The problem is trying to get him to try something new. Does anyone else have this problem? And was there any snacks your fussy toddlers loved? I am pretty much willing to try anything at this point, lol. Thank god he loves his vitamins!
