My ds is 3.6 He is fussy about what he eats and also hates eating in large groups. Won't eat anything at nursery at all even accepted foods. I am concerned how he will manage at school. He will also only eat specific types or brands of things. If it looks different he won't even try. Here is his accepted list:
Milk Bananas Yoghurt Apples Bread / toast (with no butter or spread.) Occasionally peanut butter Baked beans Peas Carrots Broccoli Potatoes (baked, mashed etc) Roast chicken if mushed up small Quiche Pizza Fish (if mushed up small) Scrambled eggs occasionally) Chips (always always chips) Sweet corn Occasionally cheese
Won't eat any salad like tomatoes or lettuce. Not much fruit. Won't eat pasta or mince, gags and spits it out. I think texture is more an issue than taste.
What can I do apart from keep offering different foods? I despair. I hoped eating with other children at nursery might encourage him but he just gets really distressed so I've stopped lunches for now. They were cooked lunches, not sandwiches.
