my 3 1/2 yr old has always been a great eater.  she will, for the most part, eat anything i give her!!!  however, this last week i can't seem to get her to eat anything but PB & J sandwiches!  breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks... that's ALL she wants!!! 

are your kids going through a certain food phase?  how do you get them to eat something else besides the one thing they want?!

My nephew went through a phase of orange.  And i don't mean he ate only oranges, he would only eat orange colored food!  He got over it in a few weeks.  My daughter is the same as yours, she'll eat pretty much anything, but sometimes she just gets in a chicken nugget mood. lol  Try making him different pb&j themed things? like... peanut butter celery?  uuum.. jelly toast, peanut butter waffles, cant think of anything else

My daughter goes through phases and it drives me crazy because I never know when it's going to end.  For like a week she'll eat bananas, but then suddenly she refuses to eat them.  That's how she is with everything though.  For awhile she loved blueberries but won't touch them now.  The only food she's never gotten tired of and wants to eat with every meal and every snack is yogurt.  Any kind, any flavor, any brand.  She loves it all.

my son did this with pbj and then m&c. I asked my PED because i was worried about his nutrition but she said it is normal and wont hurt them in the least. I got to the point though where i would tell him he could have m&c but only if he ate _____ first just so he wouldnt get used to getting his way. After all I'm mom not a personal chef.
