Lets be nice. She didn't ask for comments on her spelling. My 5 year old daughter is a picky eater also, but I insist she eat at least a few bites of what I cook. She insisted she didn't like green beans but I put them on her plate anyway. She ate them, and she loved them. It's the only way they are going to learn what they really do and don't like. I try to make one thing each kid really likes for dinner every night. Like we might have grilled chicken, steamed vegetables and rice because my oldest loves rice and chicken, and my daughter likes vegetables and chicken. My middle son, he's not picky, he will eat anything. If I am cooking something I know my daughter truly does not like, then I will cook her something different but still healthy. She does not get junk food like chicken nuggets and macaroni because she doesn't want the meal I cook. She might get a PB&J (whole wheat bread, low sugar peanut butter, organic jelly).
