Dd will not taste most of the food I make for her meals, telling me it's disgusting. She has however tasted today
- her own bogies
- some paper tissue, after she wiped her nose with it
- a wasabi peanut that dh dropped (ate it and asked for more!)

Is it too much to ask that she at leasts tastes her dinner? I offerred to put bogies in her bolognase and she informed me "no mummy, I don't like bolognase".

FFS!!!

I had a discussion yesterday with this old lady bat at the doctors somehow we were talking about fussy DS. She tells me about a study she read linking lack of a varied diet when pregnant and breastfeeding to fussiness in toddlers! Wish I'd have said the mumsnet "did you mean to be rude?" Or told her he was still breastfeeding!

Don't make a fuss. Just say that's OK and talk about something else. When she says she is hungry later, re offer the original meal and nothing else.
