Yeah, you could do that with the chicken. As far as sides there are lots of things, although like you said she doesn' tlike many right now. All you can really do is keep offering her different things. She won't go hungry if she refuses to eat something at daycare though. She'll need to learn that what is on her plate is what there is to eat. No exceptions. I've pretty much followed my friend's example. She has 6 kids and they are all excellent eaters. Her 2 year old eats salad! (I didn't eat salad until I was 12!)
My son loves the gerber graduates stuff. I give him those pasta pick ups off and on. He also loves noodles, tortillas and cheese roll ups, mac n' cheese, green beans, peaches, bananas, canned mandarin slices, avacado, tomato, cooked carrots, grilled cheese sandwiches, french toast sticks.
Hopefully the more she tries the more she'll like.
