frugal toddler meals ?
Any ideas for a picky 15 month old ? She is still nursing, likes some food, but causes me to tear my hair out when she starts flinging her food away. I know, she's my third and it shouldn't bother me, but it does....
I SO need ideas. Things my others loved don't work as well with her

My kids have all been different so I'll throw out lotsa ideas:
veggie soup with all the 'broth' drained off
whole grain crackers and cereal
fish sticks or flaked fish
of course soft fruits and veggies, banana being easiest
cooked ravioli w/o the sauce
I usually just put a few small choices on the tray and let them go at it. An old showe liner or torn vinyl tablecloth under the chair saved my sanity.

Good luck with this. I agree with PP that you need to just put variety in front of her. I find any pasta with out sauce works well, any cracker, veggies and fruit of any kind, cooked and soft. Try to mix up textures/tastes until you find something she likes. My daughter loved pasta and carrots when she was that age..and i would puree carrots and add to many things to get that taste. Good luck!
