    Coby is getting funny about food, he will not let you feed him atall anymore, so anything we give him has to be finger foods.

    Breakfast he normaly has 1 chopped banana and a slice of toast but lately he isnt eating the toast, just the banana.

    Im worried he isnt getting enough, can anyone recomend something he could eat himself, he hasnt got teh hang of a spoon yet so cereals are out

    You can get breakfast muffins .... they not so sweet as normal chocolate ones?

    what about scottish pancakes? you can put them in the toaster ... there nice and put fruit on them or in them and fold them over.

    what about a toastie of some sort??

    Pop tarts??

    pop tarts are sweet too, i dont think i have seen savory ones? i will look today while im shopping, its the scottish pancakes he will eat, so i will get more of those too.

    I know you can get red currents and things in packets, so i think it will try him on those

    muffins are a great idea, you can get wholegrain ones which are an excellent sourse of fibre and not sugery at all, plus you get them with fruit in or dried fruit.

    What about eating from a spoon if its more stodgy, Noah isnt very good with a spoon, so cant have a milky cerial, so I give him oatabix, then its poridge consistancy, so just dumping a spoon in it in anyway gives it a coating that he can ram in his mouth at any angle. normally now he hold the spoon near the bowl and I hold the very end of the handle to help guide it.

    Jack started doing this totally refuses toast
    so i tend to give him sliced banana and a handful of cheerios sprinkled on top
    sometimes raisins with it

    Or another thing you could try is Cow and Gate cereal bars, Jack loves them

    Just had a thought,as Jack isn't great with a spoon either
    With his creeal cheerios, cornflakes i pour the milk on leave it a litle bit then drain most of it off so if he can't get it with the spoon he can still get at it with his fingers :)

    Yeah or how about a dry cerial, Noah will happily eat shreddies straight out of the packet, you could sprinkle some dry cerial over a chopped banana, maybee ad some sultanas or other fruit like dried apricots or dried apple rings.

    I was going to say the same as Cat Ella feeds herself weetabix for brekfast, make them so there a little bit thick and stick to thespoon, might be messy the first few times, but now Ella eats2 weetabix and doesnt make much mess. If you dont already, get some of those cheap plastic bibs with a catcher t the bottom, there great, all her food goes in there and she scopps it out of there with her spoon and eats it lol. give it a go, good luck xx
