My kids won't eat.

They only want to eat hot cereal. Spaghetti. Grapes and strawberries.

It makes meals easy but damn I wish they ate.

They will eat when they are hungry. It's simple if they don't eat what they're served they don't eat.

4 and 5. They love fruit. Corn broccoli and beef tacos.

My son does that, he's 2. If all he wants is fruit that's what he gets.

So stop feeding them what they want and offer other choices and don't cave.  They won't starve themselves.

They WILL eat. You're enabling them to only eat what they want.

This isn't true for all kids. My child had to see a feeding therapist because of her extreme food aversions. The therapist was surprised she had never been hospitalized. She doesn't feel hungry and would rather not eat at all.

Quoting lovemymini: They will eat when they are hungry. It's simple if they don't eat what they're served they don't eat.

No but since it's just the three of us in the evening I make lite meals. I don't want to waste the leftovers
