    I love this – it’s given me loads of ideas, thanks!

    what a wonderful resource, thanks for posting such great ideas. I have a question, I can only get my picky eater to try each food separately…so she’ll eat plain rice, plain veggies, ect. Any ideas/tips to get her eating ‘proper’ meals?

    Also, does your daughter normally clean her plate? I’m impressed!!

      Thank you for the compliment, and you’re very welcome.

      I’m happy to share! As for your picky eater, that’s a hard one! I’ve been lucky enough to always have a very good eater, so I’m definitely no expert! One thing we did was introduce spices/seasonings/herbs right from the get go when we were first introducing solids (not that this tip helps you out now…) So instead of feeding G just carrots, we did carrots and fresh dill… Or bananas and cinnamon, rosemary potatoes, etc… I read something about babies ‘tasting’ the different foods you eat while pregnant while still in the womb, in addition to tasting different flavours while breastfed, so for us, it just made sense to continue along that path instead of introducing her to bland foods and then re-introducing different spices/herbs/seasonings later.

      As far as something you could put into play now, I find that G is always extra enthusiastic about tasting and eating things she’s helped prepare. I don’t know how old your little girl is, but if she was to help make meals and do some of the mixing/stirring/adding ingredients, would she be more open to tasting them afterwards? Or what about if you started really small at first and did something as simple as pasta with peas mixed in to slowly get her used to the idea, and then gradually try more adventurous combinations?

        Thank you for the tips! My little one is almost 2 so I think she’d actually really love to help out in the kitchen..I’ll give it a try!

        I’m also expecting again, does your what miss g eats go back to when she was a baby starting solids? If not I’ll probably have some more food questions in abt 7 months lol.

        Thanks again for the suggestions:)
