Default fussy child

My 2 year old daughter is a very fussy eater all she will eat is
yoghurts and turkey dinasours, has any one got any tips on how I could
get her to try new things?

Excellent way to make sure she stays fussy, works every time.

The main thing is to make sure you don't make eating a battle ground.
Maybe if she sees her peers eat different food she might want to copy
them? But don't push it at her.

With yogurts she is presumably eating different flavors, right?

It's probably going to take a lot of patience to get through this.

My parents and my elementary school made eating a battleground. Luckily
my range was a bit wider than your daughters. My mother took me to my
pediatrician and ask him to tell me to eat better. His reply was
'Whatever he's eating it's doing him good'.

That would be intensely stupid.

Don't buy those! Train yourself to be neutral about her fits. I found that
with my boys, when they understood that dinner was what was for dinner, they
ate dinner. Sometimes they would eat very little, but we have a rule that
they can have bananas, oranges, etc. in between meals (non-filling foods).
Treats are small and come at the end of the day, only after a reasonable
amount of healthy fare has been ingested. Sometimes, it takes 3 or 4 rounds
of a new item to get used to it, but, wow! 2 year olds should not dictate
the menu! Don't be afraid to be the (ever-lovin') boss! She will not
starve, even if she chooses to abstain from what you give her. Eventually,
she will understand that waiting for the next meal will NOT bring her those
dinosaurs or yogurts, and she'll choose to eat rather than be hungry. It
will be harder on you than on her!
