I wish to register a complaint...

about 15 minute meals.

There needs to be a warning in the front. Something like: "If you are making other food for your toddler start that first because these recipes are alarmingly quick".

That is all.

Not everything is really suitable for toddlers though is it, plus they go through phases of not wanting to eat what you want them to eat !  smile

Good to hear 15 minute meals are doing the trick TWR ! Congrats on the new baby too. I am the proud Grandmother of a 10 week old Granddaughter   big_smile

Re: I wish to register a complaint...

It's normal for toddlers to be fussy, in fact being fussy about food is what used to stop them eating stuff they shouldn't when we were all getting about in nature more. She still gets the option of what we have, in fact that's often how she's started eating some things. I think it's often 10 experiences with food before they'll eat it (and that's only if they like it).

15 minute meals are perfect for us right now when you never know how an evening will go but at least you know you'll be eating.

Oh boy, this says not to give my toddler hard fruits like apple until he's 4!  I've been giving him thin slices of apple since he was 9 months!!

I do thin slices of apple and carrot. They are a choke hazard as are pieces of carrot and small nuts. I supervise these times more closely.
