My 2 1/2 yr old only wants to eat carrots and hot dogs (I only give him the turkey ones). I know you are thinking you wish you kid would just eat a carrot, but swear he is going to turn orange. He has never been picky just a very healthy eater. All whole foods. I am sure it is a stage but he gets a diaper rash very quick because all the carrots cause acidic poop.

I would just continue to offer him other kinds of food along with his hot dogs and carrots. Eventually, he'll start to eat the other foods too. He will probably get sick of eating the same thing and want to try something else.

My son is a healthy eater also so I just try to give him complete meals try giving him a fruit with it a couple crackers and a cheese stick with his hot dog and carrots.

My son is 2 1/2 and is addicted to Pancakes, but if thats all he'll eat, then guess what! haha. He gets pancakes for dinner. Hotdogs still scare me just because its a hotdog... and the carrots are good for him... and its just a stage he'll grow out of, I'm sure. So I say if he wants carrots and hot dogs, let him eat it, at least he's eating!
