Food frustration with a 1 year old

So I have a one and a half year old. I feel like I am feeding her the same stuff all the time....chicken nuggets, mac and cheese, pasta salad and grilled cheese as the main dish, carrots, green beans, peas or sweet potatoes as the veggie and she will eat ANY fruit. Do you have any suggestions on different things kids her age like? She will TRY anything but at the end of the day only eats what she knows she likes. I would LOVE suggestions!!

I have a PICKY 3 year old DD....Always has been and I wont be surprised if she always will be =[ PB and J sandwiches, grilled PB and banana sandwiches, cold cut sandwiches, ravioli that has spinache, cheese and chicken inside...Its soooo hard! My 15 month old DS eats any fruit and veggie you could think of lol. Meats.....forget about it!

This is kind of what she is like. Most veggies and all fruit is ok. Meat, not so much. I have tried pbj and pb banana and those are no go (unless its on toast and then its hit and miss if she will eat it). Ravioli was a no go. So difficult!

 LOL.  My daughter doesn't like hot dogs either.  And she just informed me today that she doesn't like Fluff.  Huh??  Who doesn't love PB&Fluff???

Many kids that age don't like meat. My son wouldn't eat meat for the longest time. I would just keep letting her try meat, but make sure she gets protein from other foods.

 With my kiddos I let them help in the kitchen to get them interested, but that with be hard with a one year old. My kids were more grazers at that age. Both of them loved baked chicken with Italian dressing brushed on though.
