How do you feed a picky eater?
We try to feed our 24-month-old son the same food for dinner as we are having ourselves. Obviously, we mash or chop it and avoid the strong flavours he doesn't like (curry or garlic).
Most of the time, he will point blank refuse without even tasting, demanding apple-sauce or fruit or something sweet. Fruit is good but we want to give him a variety.
However if we set up an iPad with sesame street on he'll be so distracted that he'll eat pretty much whatever we put in front of him, even asking for more when he's finished.
How do we get him to accept the food without the iPad?
