I know everyone differs on this, but I'm looking for advice: my 3-yr-old really hates meat. As a rule, I don't make her eat it, because she gets a lot of iron and protein from other sources. But when it comes to dinner, if I make something like pot roast, for example, she will dutifully eat a few bites of meat/veggies and then ask for bread. She eats whole wheat bread, so I guess I shouldn't complain, but that's all she wants at dinnertime...after the few bites of the "dinner"...she wants bread and bread and bread.
If I push the issue of eating different things, or try to cut her off after 2 pieces, it turns ugly.
Should I pick my battles and give this one up, do you think? I suppose she could be eating worse things than whole wheat bread...? I'm just tired of it being an issue.
