Feeding a 14 mo old MaryLynn 18 kids; Santa Maria, California 23 posts
14th Nov '12

My 14 mo old daughter doesn't seem picky with food but lately all she seems to want to eat is veggies and fruits. She will eat chicken and sometimes brown rice and other foods, but then she will cry to eat carrots/peas/green beans/corn. Is this a phase or ?? should I be worried. Dont get me wrong, I love her eating vegetables (cause I dont eat them...lol) so im happy for that but lately thats all she wants to eat. However, when her dad gets home (which is usually late) she will eat anything he's eating and I try not to let her as it is late and I dont want her to get into the habit of being a late eater. :-/ Anyone else have this problem?

Yeah my daughter despises meat but I still offer it to her most meals. She loves veggies and fruits though.

For awhile I thought where the heck is she gonna get her protein from cause she doesn't even like eggs :-/ the only meat she will eat is her grilled chicken other than that she picks the meat and throws it off to the side and eats her veggies..lol

I have not tried peanut butter!! I didn't think of that. I guess I still had it stuck in my head not to feed infants peanut butter and thinking she's still an infant..lol. I will try the peanut butter for sure tomorrow (fingers crossed that she likes it..lol) thanks!
