I have just managed to get my toddler to eat homecooked meals, started off with homemade chicken nuggets/goujons and homemade chips, she likes lasagne and stew done in the slow cooker, shes really fussy wont eat chicken/fish unless covered in breadcrumbs. She doesnt like the texture of mince but will eat it if its hidden in lasagne i cant get her to eat spag bol (mince). she will eat tinned ravioli and macaroni cheese (not homemade) and for lunch she will have sandwiches or a cheese toastie with yoghurt for pudding. Tonight im going to make some mini burgers for her (hopefully she eats it) does anyone have any ideas? What else can i try and introduce?

Shepherds pie. My DS also won't eat mince in Spag Bol but will eat it in lasagne and shepherds pie

Homemade oven baked sweet potato chips

Chill cabinet spinach & ricotta ravioli with hidden veg pasta sauce (Annabel Karmel recipe). Obviously not 100% homemade but prob better than tinned. Makes a very handy quick meal if you freeze the sauce in small pots

We also make quesadillas for lunch ( although we call them pizzas wink). Pop a wrap in a dry pan and add whatever fillings you like e.g. Cheese, leftover chicken, red pesto, scallion, baby spinach, chorizo (which my VERY fussy DS loves)

Pasta bake....she may like that it's using the shapes as opposed to sheets.

Cannoli....stuffed with bolognase or spinach and ham. Then cover in cheese sauce and bake.

Spread bolognase/veg loaded tomato/ sauce over puff pastry and sprinkle cheese on top. Roll the pastry (so it resembles a large sausage roll) and cut into thin pieces. Use an egg wash (any left over you could freeze) and bake. Serve with salad (my DC version of salad is essentially crudités with a range of dips).

What about poaching chicken? I poach chicken in soy, honey, finely sliced spring onions, peas, garlic and ginger. Once cooked, finely slice (into tiny pieces) the chicken and then combine this, the veg and sauce and stir into rice

She likes tuna fish cakes, she used to like scrambled eggs but she hasnt had them in a while so has 'forgotten' what it tastes like and refuses to eat it. She likes some spicy food she eats chicken enchiladas. Poached chicken sounds yummy. Theres so much i want to make them all grin might just make her a selection so she can pick what she wants.
