2nd dilemma, my 7 year old, Laci is a really, really picky eater! Recently when I just took her to her check-up I was told they were worried because her body mass weight had gone from being in the 50th % to the 15th%. I told them she's a terrible eater. The only vegetable's this kid will eat are cucumbers, black olives & carrots that are not cooked. She will very rarely try anything new. She does like most fruit. Pretty much all this child will eat is pizza, mac & cheese, chicken, buttered pasta (won't even eat it w/sauce), p.b. sandwiches( hates jelly), cereal(would eat it every night for dinner if I let her), any breakfast stuff she does eat. So, I was told by the doctor if she refuses to eat dinner then I need to let her get something else like cereal, or bread & butter, etc.. but that she has to do it herself! Now this is kinda hard for me because I was brought up if you don't eat what's in front of you then you go to bed w/out. That's how I am pretty much. I'm not quite as strict as my parents were, I do give in to her & let her have something else but I just try to teach my children that this is not a restaurant. But obviously now that her health is kinda at risk I will let her have what she wants for now. So, I would love any advice, supper ideas & recipes you can shoot my way!!!
