Is your family full of picky eaters? What do you feed them? How do you get around them being picky?

I'm mean- I have too many kids to "accommodate".  They can either eat what I make or wait until breakfast.  I feel mean doing it, but if I didn't make them eat the meal I make then I would be making 5 different meals each night.  My kids are pretty good though and will eat just about anything I put in front of them.

i'm still trying ot figure out what to do. Both my dd and ds are waay too picky but ds is more willing to actually eat the food when he's told to. my dd on the other hand would rather starve. I got tired of constantly making her something else so now its what i make or she doesn't need to eat at all.  But i'm not too worried her starving bc she eats her other two meals really well and snacks a lot on healthy foods

You're not mean. Your sensible. I hate making more than one thing for the kids. Drives me nuts. I don't have the time to do it.

She'll eat if she's hungry. Kids are not dumb! Healthy snacks are a good thing to have around.

DH and my oldest are the picky ones. My middle guy eats almost anything you put in front of him.
