13mo DS is poorly with a cold and hardly eating. Am popping to the shops right now- what can I get him to tempt him to eat and hopefully fill him up??

Ice lollies, ice cream, pizza

Mumof1andacat Tue 26-Feb-19 18:18:08

Cocktail sausages, cheese sticks, yogurt, fruit he can grab and munch, little sponge cakes (most shops do them with no icing on)

Milkshake, orange juice, aldi do chocolate waffles which my ds loves

My daughter lives strawberries with a little pot of melted buttons.

Dips them in with a fork.

My 3 year old is ill, not eating or drinking. Requested French fancies (not that he's eaten any yet but hopefully will tomorrow!) Hope He feels better soon Op x

Honey on toast

Can he use a straw? I found at that age a straw was such fun they'd drink anything (even water) with it.

Fresh mango ( preferably from M&S). Toast from a white unsliced loaf but what does he actually fancy?

Seconding jelly. Tinned fruit in it as well and a few blobs of squirty cream. Is my favourite when I feel ill. Cold and slides down easily.

Milkshake, small cupcake with custard, chocolate buttons

TrendyNorthLondonTeen Tue 26-Feb-19 18:53:00

Seconding ice lollies. I still crave them now if I'm feeling a bit rubbish!

If he's unwell and not wanting to eat, just try and get him to drink - he'll make up for the food when he's feeling better. Can be hard not to worry but doctor once told me not to worry about food but focus on getting enough fluids in

Rice cake with one side covered in chocolate.

Pancakes with Nutella and fruit arranged to make a face on it. Tbh though I wouldn’t worry about not eating as long as he is regularly drinking and having wet nappies.

Thanks everyone! Just got back from the shops, ended up with watermelon and blueberries and two types of biscuits... We're living in South America so some of the branded stuff like Nutella is either extortionate or doesn't exist - and ice cream is available in bucket-loads so I've already got some in the freezer grin

Thank you for vindicating my decision to buy some junk food for him, I'm usually so health-conscious (with him... I'm a hypocrite with my own diet!). Hopefully he'll feel better. He does enjoy drinks with his cup-with-a-straw, but not as much as I'd like him to be having. Still breastfeeding though so getting fluids that way. I'm sure he'll be right as rain soon...

Little sandwiches cut into shapes.

GreenOliveOrBlackOlive Tue 26-Feb-19 19:12:05

Hope he’s feeling better soon xx

One of my DDs favourite treats is strawberries with a splodge of honey and some squirty cream for dipping.

I present it like a dipping platter, sometimes adding nutella or chopped hazel nuts so she can have different combos with each bite.

HappyGoLuckyGo Tue 26-Feb-19 19:34:03

Thanks smile Some great ideas on here for when he's better as well! He's in a throwing phase, which is a bit frustrating, but just scoffed half a small punnet of blueberries (before starting to chuck them!) so I'm a bit happier...
