    My toddler eats better if we are eating along with her , she likes rice dishes so try to cook the rice with any type of meat and legumes , cook it in a pressure cooker , makes a nice mushy savoury rice dish with Ton of protein

    ahahhahahahahhahahah…… The Struggle is real…. ahahahahah… I Totally can relate – My 1 year old was eating 100% everything till she was 12 months old & all of a sudden one day Madam decided not to eat any of that at all… So I had to start inventing new & different things…Ive made a few videos of these recipes just to document them if anyone is in checking them out on my channel…. 
    Your kid is eating fine for most parts – babies & Toddlers know how hungry or not hungry they are :)… Also toddlers want to act independent, start expressing & want to be in control food & mealtimes is usually where thats expressed the most.. As long as she is healthy she is fine.
    For a super easy & healthy smoothie – you can add powdered almonds, cashew & walnuts to the smoothie – Dry fruits have a lot of healthy fats for babies brain development.
    You can try – Egg & Fruit pancake, Scrambles eggs with veg, Super easy Vegetables pancake, all the recipes are my channel.
    Ill defiantly be trying your Veggie muffin recipe – it'll be a good snack as well if I am out & about the whole day 🙂

    If my daughter could eat like what your little one eats I would be so happy. So to me, your daughter eats not too bad for​ her age.

    I think you feed her a fabulous variety of healthy foods. The only thing I would suggest you do different is cut the food into MUCH smaller (toddler size) finger foods like that nearly whole size pear you put on her plate would've likely been more successful if it was cut into small little strips or cubes. As well as the muffins. Try cutting them in 4's…? I've fed many toddlers in my old age 😉 and the smaller the hands the smaller pieces they need. Best of luck & your baby is beautiful

    You’re doing great! Since your toddler likes chicken strips/nuggets try veggie nuggets like potato, carots and broccoli. Also carrot and oatmeal pancakes. For extra veggies, good luck 🙂

    How old is she? My 18 month old must be fussier than I realise coz honestly he'd hardly eat most of that lol! I can't even give him a dinner in front of him like that, I have to give him mouthful by mouthful. He's weird with cold and wet things so fruit is a no go. He just won't try things. But I'd still say he's not that bad? Maybe he is haha

    You can also hide things in mince for burgers, if you again chop it very tiny or blitz it up and mix it in to the mince it goes un spotted by most toddlers. At least that is what I have found. Luckily kids become a bit more food lovers as they age (in most cases). 😉🤞🏻

    Cheesy pasta was always my go to, I would use a whole meal pasta or one of the pastas with added veggies, and when I make the cheesy sauce I will add some slightly cooked veg like sweet potato, carrot, any think you can whiz up in the blender till it looks like mashed potato, a lot of times I will also add a small spoonful of plain hummus for protein. Once you mix it in with a very cheesy sauce, I found kids don’t even notice the hidden goodies!!!

    You are doing great. Trust me, this isn’t that fussy. My little guy would barely touch any of the foods you put in front of her, including the fruit and pasta. I gave so much oatmeal that I finally had to call it quits and just play hardball but at 2, he still will hardly touch anything on his plate. Don’t feel bad, they all come around eventually.

    Children are creative creatures, make it fun and let them discover what they are being shown. Have them with you when you create it so that they can be part of the process.
    Make smoothies from greens and make them a little sweet with fruits and honey.
    If they won't eat, don't try to force them. Children rebel against authority, and as one you must not ostracize them.

    This video will help you immensely: https://youtu.be/_BLQhGGzgy4

    (Edit) Use vegetable and bone/beef broths in drinks, it's tasty and she can easily digest it. If you'd prefer to make it and not buy it, slow cook as soup and then either dehydrate or simply replace her water/milk with the soup content and use the vegetables/meats left over as meal contents.

    Thank you so much for posting this. This is similar to my kid. I have to throw away so much food every meal. My 2 year old is a picky eater as well. She doesn't eat veggies, doesn't like meat, rice, egg, or fruits, except mango. Most of the times she would eat cheese, pancakes, and yogurt 🙁

    This video saved my sanity today! My daughter was barely eating her food and I was so frustrated. Seeing you making similar meals and facing the same kind of toddler resistance made me feel like I wasn't alone. You're doing an amazing job! Some days they eat a ton and sometimes they just push it around. That's just a toddler thing!

    I have a 20 month old (almost 21 months) and she is moderately picky too- it depends on her mood and who feeds her! It is frustrating because people love to point out that she's so small (we are all skinny and petite anyway), it gets to me and makes me wonder if she's getting enough nutrients, though she is super energetic. She may reject something but then eat it the next day.. so I'm always scratching my head wondering what to try. Something that works for me most of the time is to cook rice (congee) with extra water so it's a thick paste consistency, add veggies and egg, cut them up really fine if they are fussy about that and add chia seeds for extra nutrients. Sometimes I add store bought baby food for the flavour and colour. Hope it works for you if you try that!

    You're doing great! They all become true eaters at different times and at their own pace. Mine wouldn't eat at first and then boom he's now eating so many things consistently. He loves fruits and vegetables and I make sure to keep those in the house. Some days your toddler will need to just eat porridge to make sure she's gotten some nutrients. Its okay. Just keep trying stuff.

    Be thankful you have a good eater. My 17 month old son has his favorite foods, and doesn’t like to try much of anything else. Can’t wait until he eats more. He doesn’t like meat🙁. Love your food ideas though 👍🏾

    Thank goodness it's not just me going through this with my daughter 🙌🏼 I felt like I was doing something wrong when I see all these toddlers eating full meals and doing so well and my daughter is having to be spoon fed porridge just so I know she's eating something
