Not eating veg, help

Hi every one

Evie-mae is 21 months old, from 6 months old she has eaten all my home made purrees :D

as she got older she loved all veg given to her, peas, carrots, potatoes, swede, even broccoli

for the past month or so she will not eat any veg, she seems to have gone off everything, even potatoes

she used to love fruit too, she will only eat bananas, pears and apples

she sits in her own high chair and has a childs folk and spoon, but she doesnt want them anymore , and eats everything with her hands

I am really worried she isnt getting enough veg, I have tried pureeing them again and adding sources to them, but she sicks it up
she wont even eat my yummy home made soups anymore :bawl:

HELP

Oh Sharon, I really don't know what to say. My Nuala has started to go off fruit she will only eat bananas. Daisy will eat any fruit you will throw at her but N :no:

The only thing I am going to do is keep offering it her and hope that she will start to eat it again.

Hi Sharon,

Some children can be so fussy with their foods.

I have seen many parents who don't know what to do and how distressed they have been.

Here are a few suggestions which may or may not work as each child is so individual.

Have you tried making pictures with the veg? This is easily done with raw veg i.e. carrots. You can make faces etc with them.

Make the plate look as apetising as poss using different coloured veg.

Only put a small amount on the plate i.e one 2 sticks of carrot. This will then be a small portion of her food.

Try to be relaxed about it when she's eating as she'll be able to pick up o your anxiety.

Eat when she's eating then she can see you enjoying the veg too.

What is she like with fruit? If she's ok with that then she should be getting a lot of vits and minerals from them.

Good luck and keep us posted.

:xxx3:


If you have any more concerns about her not getting enough of the right foods then speak to your HV.

thanx mel and landi

i always put veg on her plate in hope she will eat something, i i try not to show im distressed she doesnt eat veg

It seems the more colourful the food the more she doesnt eat it,
she seems to like very bland looking food, ie fish, chicken, rice, pasta, which i know are very healthy but that really is all she will eat,

i will try making faces tomorrow , in hope that will help

Children are so very different. all the things you hear and read are what have worked for that person's child or a child they know. Likes and dislikes are so very personal even for the smallest of children.

Keep going hun sounds like you're doing a good job to me.
