I have a question about my own pizza recipe: How do I get my 4-year-old granddaughter to eat it?
She won't eat pizza, no matter where it comes from or what toppings are on it. She used to love pizza a year or so ago, but now she won't touch it. Yet she likes lasagna, spaghetti and manicotti and she LOVES garlic bread.
She also isn't crazy about chocolate. She'll only eat it in small amounts and will pick a fruit-based candy over a chocolate bar. She prefers vanilla ice cream over any other flavor, and although she loved chocolate milk a year ago, she wants only plain white milk now. She'll eat most flavors of cake, but if it's chocolate, especially devil's food, she'll only eat the frosting. I have to admit that I'm the same way. I like it, but only a bite or two at at time.
Otherwise, she isn't that picky. It really depends on the day for her. She loves hamburgers, but if she's not in the mood for them the day I serve them, then she won't touch them.
That doesn't mean we cater to her, though. She still gets whatever Shane and I are having for our meal, which is sure to include at least one or two things she does like. And if she still doesn't want what we're having, she can have either a bowl of cereal or a peanut butter sandwich. Those are the choices, take them or go to bed hungry.
What about your kids? Are they picky eaters? Do any of them dislike typically kid-friendly foods? What do you do to get them to eat?
