My 18 month old often refuses to eat what we're having for meals, she'll mostly eat the starchy stuff (bread, tortillas, crackers, noodles kasha, oatmeal) and cheese without complaint, and often fruit, eggs, and tofu. But sometimes she's not interested at all, and I have a really hard time getting her to eat vegetables. When she refuses dinner, I can often tell that she is hungry and holding out for something better. I worry about her diet being imbalanced when she either misses dinner or only eats the starchy/cheesy parts of it. I worry all the time that she is eating hardly any veggies!! I am sure that many other parents of toddlers have this problem...do you fix special meals for your kids if they turn down what you're eating?
