Merry Christmas, everyone! My almost 1 y/o has taken on the habits of a picky eater. She used to eat whatever I put in front of her (or whatever was on the spoon), but now that she's a little older, she realizes she has options. I'm sure this is a pretty typical behavior for her age, so I'm wondering how you all deal with it. She is MPI so my food options are slightly limited. Also, she has no teeth, which limits us even more. She's very good with finger foods, but I can obviously only give her things that she can gum or suck on long enough to be able to swallow. I try to give her eggs, shredded or ground meat, and the veggies we're eating, but she will often throw those things on the floor and then we resort to giving her fruit and a peanut butter sandwich or bread with coconut oil on it. She loves bread so I know if I spread something on bread, she'll eat it. I'm concerned with her affinity for carbs that she'll be lacking in fat and protein. She still nurses a few times a day and I've been giving her coconut milk. My other concern is raising a child who is a picky eater. At what point do you implement the rule that they eat what they're given? I have a 10 year old step-son and for the 3 years that I've been his parent, we haven't allowed him to be picky, but he's obviously much older. So what say you?
