I sometimes wish i was on the toddler diet. they eat a few bites and run off to play then come back. we have them sit down for dinner every night but it often a struggle to get them to sit still long enough to eat a meal. they will often take a few bites and then just want to be done.
we save their food and they can have it for later. no wonder they are both thin lol


1 bite at a time = 1 choice at a time.

thanks. those are all things i do and have tried too. But I will check family circle for recipes. I've just begun to feel like I'm in a rut making them the same things over and over...but I suppose if they eat then they are fine :)
thanks

for my 4 and 2 year olds I just make them try it. if they dn't like it that is fine, but they have to try it. i also will cut up onions, garlic, jalapenos, green peppers, etc and sautee and throw them into most of their dinner including spaghetti or any pasta. i try for healthy snacks becuase it seems they would rather snack than eat a whole meal. they are both at a good weight so i'm not worried if they are picky. family circle has some great recipes. i think on here there are kid friendly recipes as well. also i found that i can switch whole grain pasta for white pasta, brown rice for white, wheat bread as opposed to white bread. They eat it and I don't hear any complaints. i found that my kids love yougurt and oats mixed together.
sometimes we add fruit. i always have fruits and veggies on hand for them to snack on.
