My ds eats every veg under the sun but I dont think his meals are "proper ones"! What do you think, should I be concerned?

He will eat peas, carrots, brocolli, cauli, cabbage, baby corn, mange tout, corgettes, green beans no pot's at all doesnt like mash, roast, chips, jacket etc... he wil sometimes eat chicken, sausage sometimes fish eg salmon, battered fish, spag bol. He loves pasta so very, very often will have a selection of veg mixed with pasta and pesto.

You may think christ whats wrong but I dont think he had proper meals. He eats:

Pasta or rice, pesto and vegs mixed together
sometimes sausages veg gravy
sometimes chicken, veg gravy
Salmon flaked into pasta with pesto
Battered fish and curly style fries
Spag bol sometimes
fish fingers but has to be with pasta

again you may think whats wrong with that but his friends will eat things like shepherds pie, chilli, jacket pots, pizza, casseroles, mash,

I never feel like he's having a proper meal its always a mixture of things...What do you think?

stop worrying - nothing wrong with what he's eating especially as he's eating veg!

umm but no "proper meal" - he would just eat a plate of veg if he got his own way.

At 4 it's so hard to introduce new foods. Im going to try new things this week might make it into a fun thing
