Mac and cheese, grilled cheese, hot dogs, ravioli, and spaghetti o's are a few of her favorites. We try to get her to try new things at dinner, but a lot of the time I have to make her a completely different dinner than what we're having because she's gotten so picky. She loves fruit and green beans, but really won't touch other veggies.

hi, my son is 2 years old, he loves noodles with vegetables in them for dinner and sweet yogurt for desert. he loves to eat the noodles by himself with a little help.

My son too loves mac n cheese..
Another favorite, lentil soup with grated carrot/spinach/tomatoes, which i mix with rice.. sprinkle cheese while its hot and it gets this cheesy flavor..
he loves kozy shak rice pudding.. there are others flavors n brands with tapioca too.

My son LOVES spaghetti. He likes meatloaf, cheeseburgers with ketchup, chicken, and veggies such as fresh steamed broccoli, peas, green beans, carrots, and corn. He doesn't like mashed potatoes much though, which I think is kind of funny.

noodles with shredded cheese sprinkled spagetti with no sauce. My son loves it.

daughter will eat peanut butter sandwiches so I sprinkle a little wheat germ and honey and let her have at it.

i keep a few jars of chicken baby food. and mix it in my daughter's oatmeal with cinnamon applesauce to cover the taste of the chicken...if its sweet she will eat it. and its easier to hide the flavor of chicken and turkey with cinnamon apple sauce.

My son absolutely loves anything with pasta! He will eat more spaghetti than me!

My son loves mac-n-cheese, grilled cheese and quesadillas. He refuces to eat any meat. We started to add taco meat to the quesadilla, and that has worked a few times. Any suggestions?

My daughter loves home made mac-n-cheese. If you are worried about them not getting enough veggies you can put pureed cauliflower in the sauce and they don't notice anything is different.

My son loves this meal that I came up with just to get him to eat more veggies. It's sausage (he likes the sweet italian kind), macaronni, tomatoes and brocolli. I just cook the meat sperately and then put it all together and he loves it! Plus, it's very easy and doesn't take too long, which is perfect if you're working. Good luck!!

My daughter loves pizza, mac-n-cheese with ham, and grilled cheese. We have trouble feeding her other foods. I know there are some good books out there of how to feed toddlers that I have thought of getting. I have found some stuff on internet sites as well.

Good luck!

I make these great sweet potato muffins for my daughters snacks sometimes. I pack them full of ground nuts and seeds so it is really healthy and she loves it. You can use any pumkin bread recipe and just substitute for sweet potato, then add some nutritional stuff. She also loves quinoa with pomegranate seeds, I give her the veggies on the side, cause she doesn't really like mixed food. :) Oh, also try sauteed tofu with wheat germ breading with a bit of soy/honey/ginger sauce drizzled on top. She LOVES that. I do mostly veg dishes for her, so sorry if you were looking for stuff with meat.
