My 24 month old basically lives on ensure. If it is wet, squishy, or has a strange texture forget it & she will vomit it. She will eat toast as long as the crust is cut off, it is cut in triangles, and she does not have to touch the butter, baked chicken, apples, pretzels, and oranges. She drinks 3 ensure a day & her peds dr is aware. She actually won't even eat a cookie. I am not going to make dinner time an unhappy time for her, so I pick my battles wisely. She is a picky eater but doing fine. I offer her new foods, but I don't force them on her & every now & then she will surprise me and accept a new food like carrorts.
