I'm not talking just your average picky child... I am talking full out refusal to eat foods he enjoys when he doesnt feel like it, he wont eat cheese even though he likes grilled cheese and mac and cheese, or he'll like something new like toast then suddenly stop liking it or wanting to eat it. He's 2 1/2, a late talker, and doesn't have the words or ability to even tell me why. Here's where we are at:
Breakfast: yogurt (has to be Trix- won't east another kind), cherrios, grapes or blueberries, toast (sometimes...not lately) cereal bars (not lately though)
lunch/dinner: hot dog, chicken nuggets (again must be a certain brand, Tyson), grilled cheese, macaroni and cheese, ramen (sometimes) and used to eat fish sticks but just all out refused tonight. also used to eat sweet potato fries but now refuses them
snack: teddy grahams, wheat thins, natural cheese curls, goldfish or whales or auntie annes bunnies,grapes, vanilla waffers and those baby puffs.
That's it...that is where we are at. I'm tired of it and at the end of my rope. I've never in my life experienced a child this incredibly picky and I've tried everything short of making him go hungry.....(which I cant being myself to do #1 because he needs to eat and #2 because of the incessent whining that would entail for a "snack")

Both of mine are like that and they are 3 and 4. Try making 3 meals; one for DD, one for DS and one for DH. One of my tricks is hiding peas and carrots in the meatloaf. I've even resorted to bargaining if they finish the dinner that they can have a treat. Just tired of the fighting over meals. Good luck. Hang in there.
