Food Ideas for a 1 Year old Carb-aholic? Please! [moved from Home Cooking board]

I didn't think it would happen....from the time our son began eating solids, he has been a happy, voracious eater. Until last week. I am ripping my hair out, trying to find a way around his carb addiction.

We consider ourselves foodies and I am Asian so a lot of variety in flavours is a goal in the food we eat.

Here's a quick list off the top of my head of what our boy has been devouring: carrots, potatos, sweet potatos, broccoli, green beans, peas, eggs in many forms, chickpeas, kidney beans, chicken, fish, ground beef, ground lamb, ground turkey, pasta, tortellini, salmon burgers, rice, mango, pears, apples, water melon, blueberries, bananas, rice noodles, curry, tofu, yogurt, cheese, bread, olives, capers, crackers,

Last week -- nothing, nada, zippo, EXCEPT bread, cheese and yogurt. He has always loved bread, but now he surveys what's in the bowl in front him, pushes it away and starts signing for bread. And horror of all horrors, he has been refusing to try anything new.

My husband swears that I've passed on my carb addiction which was funny a few days ago, but not so much anymore! I cringe at the though of having a picky eater.

Any thoughts, ideas, recipes or advice out there?
