Any help feeding a picky 18month old?

So, DD didn't exactly start out picky until we got to solids. And I've gone through everything I think I have to get her to eat. But she still gets fed the same thing everynight! Grilled Cheese, PB&J's, green beans (alone), broccoli (alone), cereal (dry or with milk), frozen popcorn chicken, cheese, she LOVES bread, chips, cheetoes, oooooooo what else? Once upon a time she liked sweet potatoes, did corn for about 2 weeks, and I don't know what else. I feel like I'm depriving her of nutrition and I've racked my brain and wasted money on trying other things. Oh Yeah!!! She absolutely LOVES bananas.. can't get her to touch apples. She likes pears but they upset her tummy too bad. Mac and cheese once in while. Will not to anything red (like spagetti) though she'll eat cheese pizza with sauce on it. LOVES chocolate but I never give it to her since she thinks that's the only thing she needed to eat. Okay, so anyhow, I can't think of anything to give her. She'll eat like snack crackers too, but I just feel like I'm not feeding her the right foods. Any suggestions? On what else to feed her or to try or how to introduce more different foods? We tried hiding it in bread and it worked for like 2 weeks, but only when papa did it, but it doesn't work anymore. Help?

I would cut out the cereal, chips, cheetos. I'd offer only healthy foods and model eating them. When she's hungry, she'll eat.
