Toddler Food Rejection

Have you ever put in some effort only to get your home baking rejected and you thought well to hang with that?  Toddlers are very smart creatures (of course, they have your genes) but they are learning about their independence and decision making that they can control.  So you may have made something you are sure they will love yet they won't touch it.  Don't take offence it may not be your cooking at all and instead your little one asserting their decision making by choosing not to try your baking.  As frustrating at it is you need to think of other ways to introduce the food.

My little miss loves spaghetti and since it can be messy when out I developed a spaghetti fritter that was a more appropriate "finger food" for when we were out.  Plus it snuck in extra vegetables which is a bonus.  She wasn't having a bar of it, despite LOVING a range of other fritters that I make.  So I just kept producing one of these spaghetti fritters at each meal but still no luck with that.  They tasted pretty good so I made myself a lunch of spaghetti fritters and sat down to enjoy.  Who happens to turn up to have some of what I'm having?  You guessed it - little miss I don't want that from the previous days!!  No more spaghetti fritters for me now!  If you are having refusal issues too, try this tactic for yourself and see what happens.
