I have a very fussy almost two year old. He is constantly changing his mind on what he will eat and drink, and some days he really cannot work out what he wants. One bite of an apple, nope, that’s not it. He peels a banana, no, that won’t do. Licks a cracker, spits out his cherry tomato, throws his cucumber, and then goes back to the fridge. When we get to this point, I whip up our baked banana custard; he will happily eat one or even two full serves of this, every single time. My daughter also loves it, but as long as there isn’t too much spice I always seem to score one million out of one million from her.
