what foods do your kids like to eat? And what tricks have you done to improve it or make it better for them? that work?

My son wont eat any kind of pizza except cheese so putting veggies on it is hopeless. how do you get your kids to eat more veg?

have you made any substitutions like frozen yogurt or sorbet for ice cream?

my kids like fruit salad, the type that is sometimes sold in the produce section with chopped fruit in bowls,and will pick at that. Maybe I will start getting more of that, but that is expensive, very expensive.

He wont eat the fresh vegetables unfortunately. I tried the elimination thing and they just say there's "nothing to eat".

BassGirl...

Don't but the pre-cut salad...
Make yout own... get the kids involved..
let them use plastic picnic knifes to cut up the grapes and apple slices..
Make it an afternoon activity..
You can even freeze it in the summer for a cold treat..

As for the pizza.. puree the veg and throw it into the sauce.
As for the kids saying there is nothing to eat.. well I guess there won't be..
When they get hungry enough.. they will either eat it or go hungry longer.
I know it sounds mean to some.. but I don't have to put up with any I dont like that..
A few items ..., everyone has different taste buds but.. after that ..
I made it you eat it .. that my motto..

my sons favorite dip is ketchup. I wonder what he'll eat with ketchup.

But I've been through this exercise before, and when I wont fix anything other than what he won't eat, he says "I'm telling people you're not feeding me". The sad fact is, he's done it before and I got calls about it, so he's got me by the neck.

BassGirl..

do .. what a friend of mine has done..

When he says He's going to tell people that your not feeding him..
Hand him the phone and a piece of paper with the number and a name..
Tell him they are expecting his call ...

Of course call ahead to child services and get one of their people on your side..
I am sure they will be willing to help..
Or if you know a police officer.. use their name..
Shows your child .. who is actually in charge of the house..
