How do you get your kdis to eat...

(if this is the wrong forum, please feel free to move!)

I have 2 picky eaters, in that picky eater stage (2 and 4) and they REFUSE to try new things. I am hesitant to "force them" by making them sit there until they have at least tried it bcs I think that leads to bad eating habits as an adult. I don't expect them to clean their plates, just eat a spoonful. Even kid friendly stuff they balk at, like cheesy rice, or even stuff like spaghetti and meatballs. We do have at least one rule, if you don't eat what Mommy cooked, then you don't eat, I don't cook seperate meals! So what do you do to entice your kids to eat new stuff? Or do you even bother? I want to instill much better eating attitudes than were instilled in me. Help!!
