I have a picky, junk food loving toddler on my hands! Some days I wonder if kids really can survive on milk and popcorn. Then there are days he will sit and eat everything I put in front of him, bring me a bag of baby carrots to open for him, and finish all his yogurt without smearing it all over the table and himself.
I have found that having plenty of GOOD options for him on hand and accessible to him has helped a TON. I let him choose his snacks and usually his lunch as well. This eliminates fights and helps him WANT to eat what I give him because HE picked it.
Prepping our meals and snacks has also allowed for quick, easy meal times so we can eat together. Instead of making him a pot of mac and cheese every day and then having to make my own lunch in addition to that- both our meals are prepped and can be made in minutes.
Some of our favorite meals are:
