Holy Picky Eater! Luke is so bad! Hayden was picky, but not as bad as Luke is. The kid would eat fettuccine alfredo for every meal if I let him!

Breakfast is fine, he loves pancakes, waffles, bananas, cherrios's, etc. He'll even eat eggs every now and then.

What do your Junebugs eat for lunch and dinner?

ugg Sam is turning into a pick too, he can eat like a horse if it is something he likes but if not he just throws it on the floor.....he eats lunch at daycare and they say he eats great there. At dinner he gets whatever we are having, I try to make sure at least 1 thing is something I know he will eat, IDK I think it is just a phase. Sydney is a super pick still so I hope Sam's is just a short phase! He likes pasta, bread, some veggies, all kinds of fruit (he would live on just fruit if allowed) he also likes dairy (cheese, yogurt, cottage cheese, milk, etc) he refuses most meat except for those little breakfast sausages lately I just keep offering and hoping one day he decides to eat again LOL

If the meat isn't breaded, she isn't having it! Drives me crazy. We try to give Elliot what we are eating, but it usually results in me fixing chicken nuggets. She loves fruits and veggies, but getting her to eat meat is a struggle. I was like that when I was younger, still am actually. She pretty much eats anything else. Well, except eggs. She refuses to eat eggs too.

Kayleigh is my picky one, Levi is better although he still has his moments. He loves most fruit, cottage cheese, chicken, mac n cheese, pasta, peas, corn. I usually feed both kids what we are having, but try to separate it for them (like not mix sauce, veg, rice, ect.)

Noelle isn't too bad. We also serve her the same dinner as everyone else. Like Kim, I just try to make sure that there is at least one thing on the plate that I know she likes. Fruits are her favorites, followed by vegetables. She does prefer things like meatballs and chicken nuggets over chicken or regular beef. Breakfast sausages are also a winner every time (and bacon too, but she doesn't get that often at all). I think it's a texture thing. Genna was not a meat eater at.all, but she loved things like chicken nuggets and fish sticks. It got to the point where that was the only meat she would eat, so I started taking off the breading - she still ate them up. It wasn't the breading that she was going for, it was the softer texture. Once I figured that out we did more meatballs, sausages, un breaded chicken nuggets, etc. for her and she was much better.

To the Amazing Kelly: Thank you once again!! Amazing only begins to cover it.

Harleigh is extremely picky, and I am sure she gets that from me. The only thing she will eat consistently is grapes. But they have to be red. At lunch she usually gets sunbutter and jelly and daycare or chicken nuggets. At home I end up making a ton of stuff to try and get her to eat. My FIL got her to eat some sausage and veggie soup tonight which is good, and a new food for her.

Jaxon has turned into the pickest eater the last couple of months. Last night I thought I was going to go insane because he didnt want anything I made him... finally we settled on Chicken Nuggets (the only meat he will eat). I hope it goes away soon. He wont even eat bannas anymore. Mostly Apple, Greenbean, Broccoli and chicken nuggets... and goldfish!

Gabriel is picky; he mostly lives on string cheese, strawberries, bananas, canned peaches, and graham crackers. We are FINALLY off baby food, though, and he's starting to at least try some other foods, like pancakes, chicken nuggets, ravioli, and blueberries. He refuses mac & cheese and spaghetti so far.

Sofia isn't picky at all, she eats SO much. I have no idea where she puts it.

Not picky at all, but she has also never had a chicken nugget or a hot dog. Her lunches usually consist of leftovers from dinner the night before. Her breakfast is usually a fruit (bananas are a fave) and some cherrios, and an egg. Dinner is whatever I'm making for dinner. Snacks are an apple (whole apple, she loves to chop into them) or celery or carrots with some cereal again. She eats everything. The other night at dinner SIL said to DH's mom "What would we have done if you handed us steamed asparagus?" and DH's mom said, "I don't know? I never tried!"

Ben is a super pick. About food at least - but not about toys, books, crayons, chalk etc. Sometimes I think that if there was a vegetable that came in crayon flavor, Ben would be all over it!

His staples are eggs, chicken (in nugget form only), noodles, fruit. Not a single veggie unless it's totally hidden (ground up in sauce) or in soup form.
