I take a completely different approach. Totally because I was that terribly fussy, painfully thin eater as a child.

Lucy (she's 6) is also very, very thin. She eats a limited variety of food - her eating habits are getting better & she's gained some weight over the summer but it's a slow process. She just turned 6 & is only 40lbs.

On the good side, she is extremely healthy. She is a ball of energy & very, very smart. I will not be surprised if she tests out as gifted in some classes in school this year.

So being painfully thin has not endangered her at all.

We almost always provide her with something else to eat for dinner. Nothing huge but a PB&J or something. We encourage her to try things but don't force.
