How long did it take them to start eating what you put in front of them?
DD pretty much will only eat PB&J sandwiches and fruit with the occasional yogurt thrown in. She won't even try anything else no matter how much I try to offer them or get her involved in making them. Everything is "YUCK."
I've decided no more sandwiches (even ham and cheese because she would just eat the bread) until she eats something else and it is a right hell right now. I know missing a meal isn't going to kill her but I want her to eat healthy foods and partake in the family meal.
When does it get better? Thanks!

It will get better eventually. Just stick it out. Was she always a picky eater? There could be many things going on here. She may not be able to taste her food. Maybe she can't handle the texture of certain foods. On the other hand, it might be a control battle that has nothing to do with the food. Only you know if it's a real problem or it's just a control battle. If it is a control battle, just keep at it. She will not starve herself. Some parents make their child sit there until they eat but I wouldn't recommend that. Just make her sit there until you are finished eating and let her get down. Put her food away and serve it for another meal. No snacks until she's eating her meals. Good Luck! It does get better, promise.
