I offer my kids food, if they are just being picky then I wrap it up and make them eat it for the next meal. They realize their only option is to stop being picky ;)

I've tried this with my son. He just won't eat for the day. I am not willing to have a battle over food for longer than that. He won't even eat it the next morning after not eating the day before. Yes, he's THAT stubborn...

She eats whay I make of starves, IF she is hungry enough she will give in and eat the food I prepare. I am not a short order chef and I do not pamper to my children.

 my dd loves pancakes :) but they  have to be little ones...who knows why but if i try to give her a big one cut up she will have none of it :) but its really easy i usually have a bunch made up and frozen so when she wants some i just stick them in the microwave for 30 seconds :)

Do she like sauce put sauce on certain stuff maybe she will eat it or let her pick out her breakfast foods that's what I do with my daughter and she eats what she picks out and also let her try helping you prepare the meals.
