My daughter wont eat meat. Actually she really doesn't want to eat anything. She likes noodles and some veggies and fruits. I know she is not getting enough protein or iron or anything else for that matter. What can I do to get her to eat more? I have tried hiding foods, different textures and flavors and even different sizes but nothing seems to work. Please help.

my 3year old used to be like that. i found that if i involved him with making meals and him choosing what he would like eat then he used to enjoy the food more!



hope this is a help, kate mum to 3boys x

My daughter hates egges but loves deviled eggs, idk why but she does. i also cut an apple in half and i cut bananan in to really little pieces and let her decorate the top to make a smilely face. sometimes i tell her we are camping out and i make a tent and then put some little te4a cup candles and some we roast marshmallows in our living room but that is her reward for eating a good lunch or dinner. For calcium you can try pudding but make it different colors like put vanilla pudding on the bottom with blue berries in the middle and then maybe like graham crackers and then more pudding or even whip cream. But the craziest thing i have done is i used graham crackers to make a small house and i used brocolli to make the trees and just made just a small little yard. its hard i know, my 6 year old is only35 lbs. my 3 year old is 28. so i understand how worried you get. i hope this helps.
