Toddlers may be small, but they have big personalities - and unfortunately, being finicky about food is a common occurrence. Here's how to keep your cool and avoid mealtime mayhem.
As your toddler discovers a growing independence, you might be starting to notice another change, too. Suddenly, your previously angelic little one is too ‘busy' to eat – or won't eat anything but breakfast cereal and toast fingers, no matter which meal it is. Any new foods are viewed with deep suspicion, and even foods they've always enjoyed might be suddenly turfed from the table.
You'd be forgiven for wondering who's kidnapped your sweet baby and left this choosy child instead – but don't rush to panic stations straightaway. This sort of behaviour is perfectly normal, and it's all part of growing up.
