My Kid Won't Eat Anything That Is Not Crunchy!


This post was submitted by an anonymous member in our A Place to Vent group.

Recently my two-year-old daughter won't eat anything that is not crunchy. I have tried vegetables that are not uber cooked, in hopes that they would still be crunchy enough but she just won't eat. All she wants is graham crackers, gold fish, cereal (with no milk), chips and anything else that crunches. I have tried to give her other food but she won't eat all day. I don't want her to go to bed hungry, so I eventually give her something that she will actually eat, i.e. crunchy food. The doctor has said she will grow out of texture issues but I am starting to worry about her nutrition. Has anyone else had this problem? Were you able to slowly introduce other food? Please help!
