My little Fiamma is generally a very good eater but recently turned into a fussy eater. She is approaching 2 years now and I have noticed little foibles with certain foods.
She absolutely LOVES porridge and she LOVES raisins. However, the other day I mixed both together and she rejected it at first and then picked out all the raisins. Hmmmmm picky eater alert (and panicked mum!)
So since then I have been mixing some of her favourite foods into the porridge (cinnamon, banana, fruit, raisins)
I started by showing her the plain porridge and a pile of raisins separately. Then I asked her to put the raisins into the porridge and stir. She ate it the second time around. I think she just rejected it at first as it was something she was so used to which had suddenly changed. Once she understood what it was in her porridge she guzzled it down.
Am glad I spotted it as I am making every effort to avoid her becoming fussy.
My advice – mix and match comfort foods as often as possible!
