Preschoolers and healthy diet
Ok, so I have a tough time with my daughter. 3 1/2 years old. She is very independent and loves making all the rules. One thing she thinks she can control is what she eats. Lately she says to almost everything "I dont like that anymore, I will eat it again when I turn 5" Really?! She continues to eat, yogurt, fruit, deli meat, cheese, whole grain bread, cereal...NO VEGGIES. I have started giving her a vegetable juice to sneak some in but I know it's not the same.
What I would really like is if she would eat what we eat for dinner, veggies, meats, pasta...etc.
So does anyone else deal with a picky eater? She used to eat everything! I encourage her to help me cook and prepare the food, she goes to the store and helps me pick out what we will make. We even choose recipes out of a cookbook together.
Any ideas? Thanks!
