My little girl is 20 months old and she refuses all fruit and veg. She had them when she was a baby, no problem. I've tried all the tricks, but to no avail. Help!

Every single one?
Will she drink fresh juice?
Will she eat soup?

I can hide fruit and veg in all her food, and she eats it, so it's not the taste. But she won't touch it if she can see what it is. I'm more worried about the veg to be honest. I wouldn't give her fruit juice

If she'll eat it when hidden I really wouldn't worry too much. My eldest was exactly the same with vegetables (although he'd eat fruit by the bucket) he wouldn't eat any of them if he realised they were there. Now at 4 he eats peas and raw carrots so a bit of progress, and I'm sure he'll eventually start eating more, and he still eats loads of veg that I've hidden in stuff!

Thanks for that. I've become quite the expert in getting at least 3 different veg in every meal.. But I would be so thrilled if she'd just eat a bloody carrot!!! grin

Why wouldn't you give her fresh fruit juice? At least there are some vitamins in it. Better than no fruit at all.

For the veg is that cooked and raw veg?
Some vegetables I don't like cooked, but like raw.
In any case, keep offering and keep eating them yourself. We change our eating preferences along our life, so maybe she'll like them at some point.
