Re: Dinner question....picky eaters

most day it is just me and the kids - so no other adult to cook I generally cook something I know everyone will eat. I never purposely make something that is odd and make them eat it.

I will also usually ask what they are hungry for tonight - rice or noodles? sandwich, tortilla, etc..

If they are really being bratty about not eating (like not eating but asking for a cookie) I will keep the plate out and if they ask later I give them the plate back to finish.

I have also found that if they eat a big lunch then dinner will be substantially smaller - so I try to keep that in mind.

And if at bedtime they are still hungry I will generally off a granola bar or some yogurt to get to sleep.

I will not normally make them something - they refuse - and then go back and make something totally different - I think that just fuels the fire
