Rich and I swore we'd not get into big food-fights with the children. Well, we're in the midst of the food-wars with Rafi. He's basically stopped trying anything new; the only vegetables he'll eat are peas, and if it was left to him he would eat nothing but toast (of course!), sandwiches, cookies, lollipops and apples. It's also increasingly difficult to get him to sit at the dinner table...
We're feeling a bit lost as nothing seems to be working. I offer other foods all of the time, and his response is invariably, 'I don't like that dinner'. Mind you, he basically don't touch anything unless it's one of the foods listed above. This past few days we've started to say no sweet treats unless he tries his lunch/dinner - but that's not been terribly effective. And tonight I felt so sorry for him that we gave him a cookie after eating 4 small mouthfuls of brown rice.
We'd love some ideas!
He has suddenly started eating porridge for breakfast (oats, oat bran, and flaxseed) but he seems to be getting more and more restrictive in his choices.
