My daughter is over 2 years old and she is such a picky eater!! I try to feed her as healthy as possible but I really need some helpful ideas for meals. She likes fruits, and snacks on them alot threw the day, but when it comes to meals, she'll just eat her corn, or just the mac and cheese, and any other side item. Most times she'll just want cereal. I feel sometimes like a bad mom because I dont think I feed her very good. What do your kids eat?Answer Question

I would offer her the good food that you prepare for the rest of your family. If you make roast, green beans and carrots, then offer these as well. I would never make any mention of the food. Having had picky eaters with my first two, and then having learned a few good hints from my new pediatrician with the second two, helped our family have great eaters at the table. :) Remember, too that snacks keep a toddlers tummy just full enough that they don't feel the hunger, and small children don't eat if they aren't hungry. Snacks, even if they are "good" are commonly offered to little guys, but I've found them to be more of a deterrent. :) Hope this helps give you some good ideas of your own. :)

I have a picky 2 and 3 year old. I found that they will eat more meat, cheese, veggies etc if it's put in a flour tortilla shell, folded over and crisped up in a dry skillet, and cut into 4 wedges. (like a quesadilla)(sp?) I often give them a little sour cream, salsa, ranch dressing , or something like that to dip it in. They will unknowingly eat chicken, spinach, shredded carrots, cheese, broccoli and almost anything else that goes in there. They will also eat it as a soft taco too with eggs, cheese, spinach and other things.
Another thing I found that they will eat is steamed broccoli and cauliflower mashed up with a small amt. of mayo or Miracle Whip and shredded carrots, and grilled on wheat bread like you would do a grilled cheese sandwich.
