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!
