Ok.. dd's gone from being a pureed food snob (that is LITERALLY all she'd eat) to suddenly not liking it at all. If we have to feed it to her, or help her eat it, she doesn't want it.

She's had minor sensory issues regarding food textures, but she seems to be getting beyond it.

Here's the "problem" -

I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT TO FEED HER! Got any suggestions?


She will only eat soft, crunchy, or squishable/sticky foods, and only if it's cut in strips. It's been 5+ years since I've fed a chewing-learning toddler, and I have no idea what to give my kiddo!

She's been eating strips of cheese (won't eat a slice, has to be broken into strips or chunks), strips of toast (but she only likes the crust :LOL), cereal bars (like the Health Valley oatmeal + fruit bars cut into mushy chunks), crackers, and cooked carrot sticks. Sometimes she'll eat cereal bits, too. She won't touch pasta, or anything that feels slimy or wet..

She's gone from totally not chewing food, to being great at it - she rarely gags unless she stuffs two things in her mouth at once. I just have no idea what she CAN be eating! I'm worried about her getting enough vitamins and such in her diet, since she pretty much weaned a couple months ago. (She MIGHT nurse 1-2 times a week .. if she's having a bad week.
)

We give her the spoon, she feeds US instead of herself :LOL She loves oatmeal mixed with crispy rice cereal and cinnamon *boggle* but she won't eat it if we have to feed it to her, and she won't eat it if she can't get her hands around it. TODDLERS!!

We tried hummus on pitas last night, and .. she LOVED it! My babe had garlic breath all night though :LOL (I normally get roasted garlic hummus w/tomato) .. we got her to eat grapefruit too - she made the most awesome faces and kept begging for more.


Awesome suggestions, gals! thank you!!!
