Kayla Itsines might be one of Australia’s top fitness stars, but she’s also a hard working mum who often deals with toddler tantrums.
The 31-year-old, from Adelaide, South Australia, said her daughter Arna, two, is ‘never fussy about what she eats’, but instead is more concerned about the look, shape and colour of the food.
On Instagram, Kayla said at the moment Arna is obsessed with the colour blue – so she had to turn her oats turquoise using blueberries to ensure the toddler ate her breakfast.

‘Like any mum, working out what my toddler will and won’t eat every day has been a process. Often people ask me what Arna eats and if she is a fussy eater…I say yes and no!!’ Kayla wrote and shared a series of images.
‘She’s never fussy about WHAT she’s eating…but when it comes to the LOOK or SHAPE or COLOUR of her food, that’s when the tantrums start!!
‘Last week my sweet girl who loves eating oats decided she now only likes to eat BLUE oats. Honestly this child.’
To turn the oats blue, Kayla opted to add blended blueberries together with the oats and milk.
While the parenting trick worked, Kayla was left with blue-stained hands and had to explain the situation to her co-workers.
Kayla also shared a photo of what she often backs in Arna’s lunchbox for the day when they’re out and about.
On one occasion, she packed fresh strawberries, red grapes, pomegranate seeds, plain cooked pasta and pieces of a cheese and bacon roll.
As Arna is only two, she’s not yet at kindergarten.

In the comments of the Instagram post, other parents shared the unusual requests they’ve been given by their children.
‘We call everything chicken. if it’s fish it’s chicken everything is just chicken. I can’t be bothered with the arguments! Apparently we don’t eat corn at the moment because he doesn’t like yellow things,’ one mum wrote.
‘Mine wanted a cheese sandwich but without a cheese,’ another added.
A third said her son wanted his sandwich ‘cut into round triangles’, while another mum said she had to serve grapes in multiple bowls.
