Have them help! I don't know how old they are, but maybe they can even plan their own menu.

Same in my house. I usuallly end up making the same things, and don't forget that you make 3 different things for each meal..............I try to just change something they do like up a bit (if they like cheesesteaks, make them cheesesteak salads, or if they like chicken breasts, make chicken salads). Variations of what they DO like might work :)

 My family tried that and I told them eat what I serve or start fixing dinner. so now they eat what I fix regardless if they like it or not.

Also with Spring not to far away, start a garden with your kids, let them pick out 1 veggie plant with the knowledge that what it grows they have to eat. My kids have chosen egg plant, bell peppers, broccoli, cauliflower, pumpkin, jalapeno, and watermelon in the past. so far the only think not liked was bell peppers (just my son).

I notice with my family that we all pretty much like the same meals just not the same ingredients. The only thing I change in my cooking is I'll add certain ingredients like onions or tomatoes to half of the food that way everyone is happy.
