Hi Mommies
I need your help. My son is 16 months old and I just took him off baby food cold turkey except for fruit. All he wants to eat is eggs, toast, baby fruit, cookies, pancakes, grill cheese, yogurt basically any carb he will eat, except pasta, I try any give him everything I eat but he just wont eat anything but the above. Please any tips would be very helpful......

My little girl was that same way until I let her sit on the counter, watch what I was doing and help me make that dish. If I was chopping veggies, fruit or what ever, I would have an extra small plate sitting out that she knew was hers. and when the dish was done, I would let her scoop out some and put on her own plate and; she was pretty good to eat it. I think its all about perception with my little one. She loves to help me cook now. Mainly cuz she can dictate. lol

Hi Sara thanks for the reply. I mean jarred baby food (fruit) I try ever day to give him fresh veggies and fruit and he just wont eat them. As well he only has maybe 2 arrowroot cookies I day. I make sure to give whole grains and natural foods. Thanks for the tips!

What do you mean by baby fruit? Pureed baby food? At 16 months, he can eat the real thing. Have you tried it? It sounds like he's eating okay. I'd try to add a vegetable in there and go easy on the cookies. Make sure breads are whole grain and no added sugar to the yogurt. Should be fine!
