Picky, Picky, Picky.....

My 5 year old is picky, that's just how he is. 

Or maybe he's just stubborn.....that sounds better.  My husband and I are trying to find ways to get our son to eat better or just eat what we do so that we aren't making 2 different dinners every night. 

As my mom used to say, "this isn't a restaurant".  Ha! I remember that so clearly.  For those of you who have kids, how do you get them to eat?  What do you fix?  Do they eat what you do?

He eats what I eat for the most part. I give him a couple of items that I know he'll eat (so I'm not making a whole meal), and a couple of items that are new or that are iffy. Seems to work out. He gets full enough, and I'm consistently confronting him with new things. Ahhh, balance. :)

Thanks Andi! I love the idea of not making a meal but giving him a few things. I'll have to revisit the muffin tin meals again. He enjoyed that the last time :)
