  • End the food wars NOW! I speaking from experience. Fix what YOU want for dinner. Don't start fixing separate meals and don't fix only what your child wants. They will eat when they are hungry. I know it's hard but you have to be strong. If you start fixing special meals because they a picky, they will always be picky and it will not end until they are 10 or older. They will have a better diet and be much healthier if you put an end to it NOW. I have four kids I have been there, dinner time at my house is much easier now.

  • My kids liked baked potatoes at that age. We'd add cheese, bacon bits, etc.
    I also agree with previous poster to fix healthy meals and they will get used to eating them.

  • banana and honey sandwhiches are nice and nutritious or if your child doesnt like honey you could use chocolate spread or peanut butter.
