.Sometimes fresh fruit can taste tart. At 2yrs old you can start introducing honey. My 3yr. old will only eat berries chopped up and drizzled with honey. I would also encourage you to let your little one play with various fruits without the pressure of actually eating them. Toddlers naturally put everything in their mouths, so even though it might be a bit messy, they will eventually "taste" whatever they're holding. Let us know what works, and good luck.

To Sonal: Keep slowly introducing fruits. One at a time, in fun ways that she can play with.

To Jennifer Garcia: You may want to start a separate post. People won't see yours as a question on here, and you may not get feedback. I will say this: Your kid is older than BOTH of mine, and my 21 YO has been on his own since he was 19. My 18 YO has signed a lease that will be in effect in June, so he'll be out after graduation. Time to put that boy on his feet and tell him to hit the road. At this point, because your husband is continuing to enable the boy, it IS quite a lot of his fault that the kid acts the way he does. He's an entitled brat, IMO, that needs to realize that your time for 'taking care' of him ended when he hit 18.

However, that's all I'm going to say, because this is Sonal's thread about feeding questions. To start a new thread, go to the home page, and click on the "start a conversation" link

One thing I do is mix fruit with my 2 year old's oatmeal. She enjoys it and I actually give her oatmeal twice a day. Also try dries prunes. They are naturally sweet and good for fiber.

I'm hoping to live long enough to see my grandson grow up happy and healthy. He was take away from his mother (my daughter). Please read our story and help if you can. It's amaxing that this kind of gross injustice happens in the United States.

You have 4.5 month old that only eats 4 ounces in a whole day? or 4 ounces at a time. If she does 4 ounces per feed, no worries. She is just a bit behind her twin, which is very common

I wasn't sure where I could reach someone that has a similar situation but I have 4 and half months twins (one boy one girl) the boy eats just fine and is introducing other baby foods ex.( Foods on the supported sitter section) and he eats with no problem. My daughter is worrying me she hardly eats 4 oz on a good day and absolutely won't eat off a spoon I'm worried she isn't getting enough to eat any ideas???

I wouldn't worry as long as he eats everything else. You could try adding fruits like banana or strawberries to a milk shake

introduce something with universal appeal (grapes, orange segments, pineapple) and don't tell her it's "fruit".

It says right on the website that Herbalife shakes are for kids aged 4 and up. They make a multivitamin for baby 6months and older.
So I would strongly suggest you not give such a shake to a two year old. Also, you don't want to create a habit of replacing meals with shakes.

Try a herbalife shake, it's nutritional even babies can drink it. My children love it, comes in very handy especially when you don't know what to feed them.

Jessica, as long as he is eating something, is active and alert. Then don't worry. Toddlers can seem to exist on almost nothing. Make sure he isn't drinking too much milk, especially before meals.

Does she eat veggies?

Smoothies are usually a hit w/ a lot of kids... put some OJ and yogurt in a blender w/ frozen fruit. You can even call it a 'milkshake' if that will appeal to her.

Have you tried blending the fruits, or dry or even frozen fruits. Maybe chopping the fruits up and top it off with whipped cream or yogurt.
