My daughter (2) used to eat anything, all my own homecooked food but has now decided she will only eat C&G ready made stuff that is tasteless to me! I feel so guilty giving it to her but if I don't she won't eat!! Most of the time she has a few mouthfuls and then refuses to eat the rest, to be honest I don't know where her energy comes from as she eats so little?
She is also tiny for her age, she only weighs 23lbs and I'm worried that the HV will have a go at me at her 2 year check! She is otherwise healthy, alert and a little treasure so maybe I'm wasting a good worry!
So any tips on what I can give her to 'fatten' her up or tempt her to eat my food?
I was going to say exactly the same as diet queen. Also have you tried letting her 'help' you make something? pizzas with smiley faces, that kind of thing. The novelty factor may mean that she willing to try something new.Big cook little cook on cbeebies may give you some ideas. Good luck.
She will know it isn't the real jarred food. Kids aren't daft.
If you want her off jars, do it gradually if you can't do cold turkey.
What does she have for breakfast? If it is cereal offer your food or cereal for lunch, same for tea. She will get bored of just cereal and even if she doesn't for a while it has got to be better than the jarred stuff.
