My son has a bad habit. He picks out the veggies in casseroles and only eats them. Last night I battled him to eat potatoes and meat.
Should I? He is eating the good stuff.

My son has never liked potatoes and my daughter likes them.Look on the bright side.He likes his fruits and veggies.That's half of the battle for most parents.We have a "try it" rule in my home.Even if you don't like it you have to try it.I also compromise w/ my son on how much that he eats (he's 6 1/2).He will often ask me how many more bites that he has to take.My daughter (16 months) eats what she wants and hasn't learned to compromise yet.I don't force my children to finish everything on their plates,but if they don't finish and want something afterwards Imake them eat what's left of dinner.Not a new meal.Have you tried tofu as a protein yet?My son loves it.You could also make him veggie soup w/ a chicken or beef broth.My children love it w/ toast or crackers.We buy wheat bread or whole grain crackers.W/ the exception of goldfish crackers.Will he eat those?
