Butternut Pumpkin Cupcake Recipe for Fussy Toddlers

Pumpkin Cupcakes Recipe for Fussy ToddlersThere are 2 types of toddlers out there. The first type is the ones whom will eat anything offered to them. The second type is the choosy and fussy toddlers like my son.

He practically rejected all types of food when he was below 2 years old. He mainly survived on Formula Milk and you can guess his weight.

As he started going to daycare, his eating habits improved and there is more food types to his palette. Unfortunately, vegetables are not going easy for him.

Most children will at least eat carrots but my son says “Rabbits eats carrot” and he would not touch it.

One fine day, we went for afternoon tea to a friends house and we had pumpkin cupcakes. He loved the cupcakes and had about 3 of them. I guess, that is the way he is
going to eat his vegetables at the moment.
