  • My 9yr old has always been very picky with when I make dinner I dont make a 2nd meal. For example she HATES potatoes. I substitute her potatoes for the min rice so she still gets the nutrients. The only kind of potatoes she will eat are french fries or homefries that I make. Did you try a different mac and cheese for her such as if she doesnt like Kraft try Velvetta or something like that.

  • my other LO's eat it but my son always says no, icky, yuck, he's only 2 but I find it odd because it was one of those foods I thought all LOs ate! I have tried different brands even homemade he won't touch it!

  • My grandson would eat any potatoes I fixed except potato salad until he was about 5. Go figure. Maybe it's a phase he's going through. I fix the sauce while the mac is draining. Make sure it's mixed real good (creamy). I also add peas and sometimes bacon & onion (cooked). My mom made us try just one bite. I did it with my kids and grandkids, too. If they still don't like it, ok, who wants his share? 2 might be a little young for this tactic, but you can try.
