I have a very picky eater as well. He is small for his age and his pediatrician told me to give him high calorie foods because he was not gaining weight. I started by not trying to get him to eat. I would prepare food and let him come to me. I made his favorite oatmeal with whole milk, peanut butter toast, scrambled eggs cooked in olive oil with lots of melted cheese, homemade cheeseburgers, and healthy homemade pizza with tons of cheese and meat. Well, it worked, but we both started gaining weight, rofl. That food is great!
