  • My four year old SS is super picky so our choices are limited.

    For breakfast he wants peanut butter on whole wheat crackers, a banana, and milk
    For lunch he likes to have baked chicken nuggets, a corn dog, or tuna sandwich.
    Dinner, he gets the ABC shaped baked tater tots and one of the above lunch items.

    He drinks lots of milk during the day and his multi-vitamin daily.

    I put the food that we are eating on his plate too. I give him veggies and fruit at every single meal but most of the time he won't touch it. I just hope that the more he sees the different types of foods, he may actually try them.

  • Why do meals have to specific types of foods for specific meals? What's wrong with eating a piece of meatloaf for breakfast or eggs for dinner? As long as they are getting healthy foods throughout the day, it doesn't really matter what they eat or when they eat it (barring any special dietary needs, of course). Most toddlers are picky eaters (it's a control thing), but unless your child is losing weight, falling off his growth curve or otherwise unhealthy, I wouldn't get too worked up about being a picky eater.

  • My two year old son has started to get picky. But I found if I put a little bit of ketchup on whatever it is that he doesn't like, he will eat it. If by the end of meal time he doesn't eat it, I treat it as if he isn't hungry, and we skip the meal. (We do try later if he wants, but its one way to get children out of that picky stage quicker...or at least for my son for a little bit)

  • My 8 yr old drinks whole milk throughout the day. He likes white rice and beans, beef, rice and chicken, pesto with halibut, loves shrimps, spaghetti with chicken or with meatballs or with meat sauce. I try to work the vegetables like green beans and beets into the recipe so he gets his vegetables - still working on that! He is not crazy about desserts but loves yogurt (gogurt).
