Okay....the good news is, standing my ground tonight actually WORKED! I refused to offer him anything other than what I already offered him, and he finally came to me and asked for the mac n cheese. Then he ate most of it, too! YAY!
My next question(s)....one, if he is simply refusing something, do I store it overnight and offer it again the next day? As I'm sure we all know, some items don't reheat well. I won't offer him something that even I wouldn't touch after the microwave has destroyed it. Also, like most of us my money doesn't grow on a tree, and I'm not in the habit of spending/wasting it on foods he refuses to eat (ie: anything green). I want to give him healthy choices, but I don't want to throw them (and consequently, my hard-earned money) away when he refuses to eat them. Once I try something with him and it doesn't work, I don't tend to buy it again unless I'm going to eat it myself. Any suggestions?
