The 2-Year-Old Picky Eater

Two-year-olds can be very picky eaters, and parents often wonder how they survive at all. Your child is likely to be very sure about what she wants and when she wants it. For example:

  • She may be very particular about how food is arranged on her plate.
  • She may "binge" on favorite foods for a while, only to reject them later.

Don't worry if all your child will eat for a while is cereal — this pattern is normal and will pass. Avoid battles by preparing three meals and a couple of snacks every day at pretty much the same times. Then let her eat what she wants.

Thanks! Sometimes I feel like I just need to be reminded that she won't always eat this slim forever.

i'm finding that if I push food, she pushes back in the opposite direction. if I have it available and reachable at all times she may sneak over to get it. also, pediasure is a dietary supplement that i can put in her sippy cup and she will drink it when i'm not paying attention and there is distraction. its all a game at this point, thats a relaxing way to look at it.
