Diary of a fussy eater – Sausage rolls

April 7, 2015

There are a few things that I know that Tigger will eat, one of those things is sausage rolls. Now when I say sausage rolls what I actually mean are those frozen cocktail sausage rolls that you can buy in the supermarket, splash a bit of milk on and pop in the oven to bake.

Freshly made he can happily eat 10 of them in one sitting and sometimes will ask for another helping. In fact he asked for a batch of crispy sausage rolls for his lunch today (after eating nothing for breakfast – don’t get me started on that).

The thing about these sausage rolls is that they are the bog standard basic sausage rolls that you can buy (the ones you get around 50 of them for about £1.00 in the supermarket).

  • I’ve tried buying premium brand sausage rolls – he didn’t like them.
  • I have tried making my own – he didn’t like them.
  • I’ve tried buying chilled cocktail sausage rolls – he didn’t like them.
  • I’ve tried buying sausage rolls from our local bakery – he didn’t like them.

It seems the only ones that he will actually eat are the bog standard basic supermarket ones.

Without his love of these sausage rolls I would question whether he is vegetarian as he eats no other meat based products – and I mean none! He won’t entertain the idea of chicken, fish, or any other meat product.

So for now I am just thankful that he eats something

    The cheap frozen ones are much nicer than any others….I think they are anyway. Your boy has great taste…hehehe Such a shame that these are just about all he will eat. It must be so hard for you x

      He seems to love them so I guess I shouldn’t complain. I think I have grown used to his fussy eating and now it’s not so much of an issue as it once was.

    I love these sausages rolls – so simple and loved by everyone. I don’t think I’ve ever found anyone that doesn’t like them – Definitely glad he is eating something x

    Yep, I’m a complete advocate of going with what works. There’s nothing worse than the trauma for both of you, and when you want him to eat you don’t want to add associated unhappiness of stress to meal times. I am constantly amazed by my childrens ability to distinguish tastes and have preferences to what on the surface can appear the same, but it just shows how tender their tastebuds are. It is really good to read that you are finding the things which Tigger prefers and have that assurance that he’s eating.
