Re: Toddler not eating
What would happen if you "ran out" of the biscuits? Sometimes toddlers are a little less stubborn if they feel like their preferred option is unavailable.
Tricks for getting a toddler to try dinner:
- Make it a game. Have him feed you, transition to a game where you take one bite and he takes one bite, or where you are "too scared" to eat your food, so he has to show you how. Tell him that a piece of food is a gorilla, and it is scared of him because he is a big hungry lion, and then have him chase and catch the gorilla. (My kids love that last one.)
- Make it cute. Instead of serving him a plate of food that looks just like yours, create a face or a picture with the food. Mashed potatoes for a face, olive for eyes, vegetable ears, etc.
- Let him dip. A lot of kids love dipping foods into a container of sauce or dressing, and will eat foods the do not normally eat if allowed to do so.
