Hey everyone! I’m looking for some new ideas on what to pack my 2 year old for lunch for daycare. He is somewhat of a picky eater so I feel like I’m always packing the same things every week and I’m sure he’s probably sick of the usual chicken nuggets, pasta, rice, pizza rolls, etc. Also, I can’t pack anything with peanuts/peanut butter or egg as some of his classmates are allergic. If anyon... More
I’ve got a 15 month old with 6 teeth who loves vegetables. Great! Except he’ll only accept them in purée form. The most we’re able to do is get him to eat a little in a diced and heavily steamed version, but a) you have to feed it to him by hand, no utensils, and b) he’ll eat less than he would if it was puréed. I think he’s gotten stuck on his first solid food texture. Any tips on helping him... More
I have been losing weight drastically and my OB let me know I need to put on some weight, she suggested Ensure and I was all for it until I tried it. It’s too sweet and I just couldn’t do it. Are there any quick recipes or other ways you gained weight the healthy way while being pregnant? TIA! Side note: With this pregnancy I have had no desire to eat, if I do it’s literally because I force my... More
Any one have any ideas to try and get your LO to eat their veggies? I’ve tried sneaking it in a bunch of ways but my baby girl can always tell. She’ll eat the rest of the bite and spit the veggie out or just avoid it completely. I know she needs to eat them. She knows she needs to eat them. How did you all get your kids to eat the greens?
My son turned 2 this August and i am worried as he doesnt eat anything sometimes whole day. Also he keeps coming to me to breastfeed and if denied screams at the top of his voice. We are having difficulty explaining to him that this is lunch/ dinner time and that he has to eat. Any suggestions on how to discipline toddlers.
My soon to be 2 year old son is by far one of the pickiest kids alive. And i say that because my other 2 kids will eat the dirt from outside if they could. He’s a pigeon eater as i like to call it. Kid survives on a meal a day and snacks 🤦🏽♀️ I’ve been looking into like pediasure and things of that nature. Any suggestions, recommendations even words of encouragement will work at this point
My almost 21 month old kiddo takes more than an hour to eat, every single day. She sits for good 15-30 minutes and then walks around or reads and one of us have to feed her. It just delays the bath and bed time. Just wondering how long other kiddos take..... we do family style dinner everyday.
A few months ago he was adventurous and curious to try all solids. He even had some favorites. That progressed nicely until just this past week or so, when his tastes regressed out of the blue. He won't even try foods that need fingers, utensils, bowls, or plates. Not even purée, unless I mix it with his milk/formula in a sippy cup. Two questions. What's going on here? And how do I get...

My son is so picky he’d rather starve and he really hasn’t gained much weight because of this! Anyone have any tips or tricks? Thanks.
My oldest is headed to preschool Tuesday and I am scrambling to figure out lunches. What are your kids' favorite packed, no-need-to-heat again, no-nut lunches? For context, we are no added sugar, prefer to avoid processed foods eaters. Even though we've tried sandwiches, my son dissects them and only eats the bread. 🤦🏻♀️ In an attempt to be prepared for anything that works, I'v... More
Hi all. I feel like most of my personal posts on Winnie are about constipation. My daughter is about to turn 2 and is always on the brink of constipation, or so it seems. She gets a daily probiotic, I limit her milk consumption, and she eats fruits, veggies, etc. I limit her “binding” foods (bananas, rice, etc), she drinks plenty of water. But she daily has hard poops, sometimes followed later... More
My LO just turned 13mo and has decided not to eat any meat/protein except for hotdogs!! Ugh it gets to be so frustrating. I don’t know what to do. Also, she’s not up for new fruits or veggies. We recently tried fresh pears, plums and mangos all of which she kept spitting out. I just don’t know what else to do. With the fruits/veggies I can still give her baby food pouches but for meats I’m at... More
My two children eat the same things for breakfast. We rotate between eggs, oatmeal and healthy waffles (homemade and then freezer stored) with nut butter. We save our fruit and veggie smoothies for later in the day. My older one will eat some fruit with breakfast but my younger child is not a fan, occasionally eating a banana. Just looking for some easy and nutritious ideas to add to this borin... More
My LO’s birthday is coming up and I’m trying to plan food. We are having birthday at a playground - no grilling allowed. Need easy, not a ton of prep involved, cold food ideas for 40 that will last a few hours. Also, I don’t mind buying already prepared items - we were going to get large pizzas from our favorite pizza place. What did you all have? Ideas online tend to be way to much work and I... More
23 month old daughter stop eating and drinking milk and water. I know she’s hungry cause she checks out the food I give her. I think it’s her teeth that’s bothering her. How long is this phase going to be? She’s a picky eater but she can eat when she eats but the couple of days/weeks, it’s been terrible. I think she loss some weight. Help! Any suggestions? Thinking of blending some chicken... More
My daughter just turned 11m. I still feed her infant oatmeal for breakfast every morning mixed with a purée of sorts for flavor. Does anyone else still do this? I also feed her whatever I’m eating too when she’s done. I guess I am not sure if she’s supposed to still be having it?
