How can I convince a almost 2-year-old to eat read colored things?
She just refuses to eat anything red! She will not eat strawberries or watermelon or cherries. She hasn't even had them before!
How fluently is she speaking? Can you ask her why she won't eat them? Maybe she thinks they look bloody or something.....? You never know.
She is just starting to have cohesive conversations, but she will not explain her reason she just say "You eat it," and "No."
In that case, I'd take to heart what the other poster said about the Red 40. That could very well be it.
I would let it go and find other nutritious foods she will eat. Life is too short to worry about it and she will grow out of it. Besides her instincts may be telling her she has a sensitivity to Red 40 that is found in too may man-made foods and is very harmful to children. (I have granddaughter that goes berserk on anything with Red 40 in it.)
So while there is nothing artificial in strawberries or watermelon, I would just listen to her little body and give her other melons or grapes instead. She'll out grow it.
