Right now she is on a french toast stick kick. That is all she wants. Last night I gave her a couple when we first got home. I always give her one snack before/while I'm getting ready. After the one snack that is it unless it is fruit. I had made chicken last night and she promised me that she would eat the chicken all she ate was the skin. She wanted more french toast sticks. I didn't give in and she just went without dinner. She will do that lots of the time just not eat if she can't get what she wants. Her dad and I we are not together but we both have this problem. It is only a very few things that I can get her to eat. Chicken nuggets, pizza, french toast sticks. I certainly hope she will grown out of this. It's very frustrating and I'm sure it's more fault for giving in in the past and honestly sometimes still do.Answer Question

When I was still nannying, I had several children cross my path who did the same thing... I found a couple of easy ways to get them to eat, simply by making food fun, taking them shopping so they could learn how to make good choices, we learned to read the ingredient lables- and what bad things that we were supposed to avoid... What they did to our insides- Even googled pictures of clogged arteries, and what diabetes looks like. That way they could understand WHY we do not eat those things, not that I was preventing them from having what they liked.
I've started a new blog (at the request of several friends and fam) highlighting some of out favorite recipes, and some of my kids (and wee ones I used to watch) favorite snacks. ALL of them are quick, easy & cheap. Check it out. More will be added soon!
