Watch out for 8 signs of picky eating

Refusing old favorites

It’s not uncommon for a toddler to suddenly start refusing foods that he or she once happily accepted.

With children, each day is different than the last. On one day, your toddler might accept apple sauce or carrots, only to angrily refuse the same foods the next day. This is very normal and not something to be alarmed about. Just continue to offer previously accepted foods and don’t become emotional or angry about it.
