My (almost) 4 year old is so picky its driving me nuts!! My 10 month old will eat ANYTHING i put in front of him but with her, she usually refuses to even try her dinner and goes to bed hungry EVERY SINGLE NIGHT. She crys every night that she is hungry (literally as soon as she gets up from the table and it makes me feel so bad) and I would gladly give her a healthy snack before bed if she just tasted her dinner. I understand you won't like everything in front of you, and I try to put things on her plate i KNOW she likes, and if she trys something and then doesnt like it I will make her a sandwich, but she needs to try it first. How can i encourage this? And yes, I have tried saving her dinner for later (or lunch or whatever it is) and she will still just refuse to eat it and then proceed to cry and whine until the next meal is finally served.
I swear she is getting worse too because she used to eat shrimp and grilled chicken and fish and now she wont take a bite of those anymore.
