My 7 year-old son, who used to be the pickiest of eaters (he ate almost nothing in his younger years), just came home from school and ate, in one sitting:
-a bowl of blueberries
- 2 bananas with peanut butter
-and a slice of pumpkin bread
-all washed down with a glass of water
He used to eat only cheerios and yogurt, and drank only milk or apple juice. We have come a long way! My theory is that as long as you stick to good eating habits, kids will eventually realize that they are hungry and will (for the most part) start eating the foods that you offer them. Good luck to all of you moms of picky eaters – I feel your pain, but it will get better!
