Addy has been a very 'picky' eater. She will ask for something I make it and then she doesn't eat it and half hour to an hour later she is hungry and asking for something new. Then just does the same thing again! I can't afford to be wasting so much food! Ladies with older children, did you ever go trough this with them? What should I do? Any advice will help a lot! Thanks

My girls do this too. When they try it, I wrap their plate of food up and put it in the fridge. If they later decide they are hungry then they get that same food. If they are actually hungry they will eat it, they won't starve themselves. Now if it's something I know they don't like I will make them something different as long as they have actually tried what I put in front of them. I wont force them to eat something they hate. Usually though they try it with things I know they like.

Ditto! If they don't eat it, I keep it for later and they keep getting it until its gone. We also have a rule about trying something at least once. Of course, mine almost always say they do not like anything new. So if dh and I like it I'll keep making it until they give it a real chance.

I've always said that it's not my job to make my kid eat, it's just my job to provide him with healthy choices. So if he doesn't want what I make, he'll have to be hungry until the next meal! Although I do offer him alternatives like fruit or yogurt. e.g. if he doesn't want to eat X for dinner, he can have a banana. But not a cookie or other junky thing (which he always begs for).

My oldest daughter eats only a few things. Her staples are Cheerios, apples, cheese sticks, pb&j, cheese quesadillas, mac & cheese, fish sticks, zucchini muffins, and chili. It's relatively well-rounded, but she's very picky. I'm hoping it's just a phase, but it's been a few years.
