My 6 yo daughter, who used to eat pretty much everything I'd put in front of her, has recently decided she doesn't like much like anything other than fruit, bread, yogurt, and cheese. Oh, and of course anything that could be considered "dessert". We've tried the bribe thing - "You only get dessert if you eat all your dinner", which I don't like and doesn't work. I really don't want to make her a separate meal, and I worry about the lack of variety in her foods. I send her with lunch to school, and everything but the fruit and yogurt comes home uneaten. Then she refuses to eat it. I'm not sure what the proper thing to do here is, I want a balance of her being able to make choices for herself and also getting good nutrition.
I'm sure others experience this. It's so frustrating because she's never been picky before, I've always been able to feed her whatever. What do you do to get your kid to eat?!
