Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

i have posted a recipe on this site titled, "delicious snack for kids" if she doesn't have any peanut allergies, then you could give her that. i started my daughter on jar food at 8 weeks, and served her a rainbow variety of veggies, and fruits. to this day, she still eats like a champ, because of that.(she's 21 months now) if she likes sweet potatoes, try butternut or acorn squash. take an avocado, and mix up some gaucamole. spread that on a turkey roll up with a whole grain tortilla. for breakfast, try plain greek yogurt with diced fresh fruit, a drizzle of honey, a dash of cinnamon, and top it with multi-grain cheerios. whip up a smoothie in the blender with greek yogurt, fruit, milk, honey, and tofu. tofu is loaded with protein, and has no taste. it will take on the flavor or whatever it is paired with. she'll never know! i serve it all the time with my daughter, and she loves them. a quick lunch could be whole grain spaghetti noodles tossed with basil pesto sauce, and parmesan. basil is loaded with vitamin k. pesto is made with olive oil. healthy fats! just keep on trying, and she will come to love these foods. don't make mealtime a battleground, it won't get you anywhere. let her see you, and dad eat a variety of healthy foods, and she'll be more likely to try them!
nutella is great its made of hazelnuts and its chocolate so kids think its a unhealthy food but its good for them
