So my 13 month old has started the picky eating thing (so sad... he used to eat ANYTHING I would feed him). I'm offering him a wide variety of healthy foods, and then we eat together and he can decided how much or if he wants to eat (trying to avoid any drama or pressure since that really doesn't seem to work). I'm trying to prepare myself for the long haul, but when does it stop? When will he not reject the steamed asparagus or salmon? Heck, when will he eat a beef or bean burrito? I'm assuming this picky eating thing will go on for years, but are we talking 2-3 years or more? How long before your kid would eat most of what the family ate?

My kids always ate what the family ate. My youngest has problems with some textures and may skip something we are eating but just eats the other things. My 23 mo grandson likes lots of different things. There is no one right answer.
You don't want to have food battles. You don't want to make your child starve because he down't like what you are having. Have things available that he does like.
