I asked this in another forum a while back and I am convinced I didn't get real answers.

I just feel bad sometimes as if I don't feed him well, but he just likes what he likes. I would love some suggestions though.

He eats:
oatmeal/cream of wheat
sometimes toast
bagels w/cream cheese
french toast
sometimes pbjelly
bananas (sometimes)
string cheese
cheese quesadillas
sometimes spagetti
tortilla chips and guacamole dip
sometimes lunch meat
sometimes mashed potatoes.

fruit smoothies

I too feel like Mollie eats the same things over and over each day! Here's what she will eat that you haven't listed yet.....

pimento cheese sandwiches
frozen chicken nuggets
veggie burger
turkey smoked sausage
southern style hashbrowns
canned corn or dehydrated corn
cooked carrots
whole green beans
ranch style beans
GOLDFISH (they make 'em with whole grain now!)
pickled beets
vinegared cucumbers
cottage cheese (usually mixed with yogurt or canned fruit)

I forgot....
dried apricots
homemade granola

Hopefully, you can find something here to try with your toddler!

I feel that way too. Sometimes I feel I don't give her a variety of foods.

eggs (srambled or hard boiled) bananas
oatmeal apples
cereal pears
french toast peaches
waffles yogurt
peanut butter sandwich chicken nuggets
pancakes casseroles
peas cottage cheese
green beans gold fish
carrots teddygrams
squash chicken
sweet potato soups
mashed potato applesauce
mac and cheese spagetti/lasagna
rice graham crackers

I know there is probably more. But that's a good list of what I've been giving her.

I have recently started making a mix of mini marshmallows, M&Ms, raisins and craisins. He is not normally allowed candy, but I figure if I put in 3 cups of the fruit to every 1/2 c of marshmallows and a small bag of chocolate, I am doing pretty good for him.

The other suggestion I have is if you buy an acorn squash and halve it and bake it with some butter in it and brown sugar, when it is done ( 45 minutes or so at 350 degrees) scoop it out and spoon over the butter/sugar mix over the top and call it candy squash. Ayden will not eat it if we call it acorn squash, but if I call it candy squash the next day, he will eat almost an entire half on his own!

He eats a ton of PB&J
chicken nuggets
chicken breast
french toast/pancakes/waffles
lots of bread
fruit (I try to introduce something new each week into a fruit bowl)

The other thing I do is I make zuchinni mini muffins with carrot shreds in them. The carrots don't change the taste, but they get some veggies in their treat. If I make him a fruit smoothie I try to throw in one veggie in there too bc he will not eat veggies otherwise other than his candy squash and occasionally corn.

Thank you so much. This gives me some more ideas and some things I just forget about.

He does like banana bread or pumpkin bread or zuccini bread. I know those are pretty healthy.

I also make him fruit smoothies or chocolate milkshakes and put wheat germ or flax seed in the mixture.

He ate a granola bar and a couple of french fries for lunch. Ugh, I know I can do better than that.

It is so hard with morning sickness. Food makes me sick.

Thanks gals!!
