Now that my kids are older, we work on getting my son to try new things. he knows he has to eat one bite and if he doesn't like it, he only has to eat half of what's on his plate and I won't make him eat it again. usually he will decide he kinda likes it by the time he is done with the half. My older will eat anything but at home she won't drink milk, go figure. It's been a long time since we did gluten free/casein free meals with her, it didn't work out as well as we had hoped, so we just limit red 40 from her diet now. No other advice though, sorry.

Caleb is not too much of a picky eater these days, or not too much so, but my youngest son Ethan is insanely picky and we have so much trouble getting him to eat pretty much anything, he likes gogurt, crackers, french fries, potato wedges, chicken nuggets, slim jims, and some dry cereals, and that's pretty much it, he cannot feed himself with a spoon and gets frustrated when we try and show him and won't eat any soft foods or bread like foods, we have to give him pediasure daily just to be sure he gets enough vitamins/calories
Daniel is a massively picky eater, and much as we try to present new things on his plate, he's getting worse.
I love your idea of presenting soft/wet foods as solid foods, but I wouldn't be able to do it by freezing, as he hates cold food as well such as ice cream. Wonder how else I could use that idea though...
