My toddler is super-picky when we’re away from home. We’re staying with my parents soon – will he survive on just crackers and cheese?

Do whatever is least stressful for you both! Eating cheese and crackers for three days isn’t a disaster and I imagine there are a few other foods he’ll eat, even if it’s just cereal and bananas. The place to try expanding the number of foods he eats is at home, at his own pace and in a calm atmosphere. While you’re away, offer him whatever you’re eating to explore, but just don’t expect him to eat it!
