My daughter will not eat meats or veggies. I give them to her with every meal and she will not eat them. She loves fruit, pasta, and breads. I don't know what to do anymore. Should i put her on vitamins to help make up for what she is not getting.

I personally wouldn't give vitamins yet. I would keep trying different ways of getting her to eat some vegies and meat such as avocado thinly spread on bread, tuna with pasta and grated cheese or cheese sauce, ham omelette, coleslaw/potato salad. I have a fussy eater but he will eat some fish, meat and vegies sometimes.

I use a food grinder to grind up veggies and whatever else and mix them into baked sweet potatoes or baked squash and add a dap of pure maple syrup. I am able to get my son to eat anything and everything this way.

I give my daughter vitamins, the gummy bear ones. She is a picky eater too but her problem is breads and veggies. No matter what I do she will not eat bread of any type and won't touch most veggies. My doctor says they will grow out of it but to give her vitamins. I like the idea of V8 Splash. I might have to try that.

I actually asked my doc because my son won't eat meat. His response was "Have you EVER had a doctor tell you to eat more meat?" How is she with eggs and cheeses? (eggs for the iron esp.) Can you "hide" food? Like mixed into pasta sauce, veg broths in the cooking, etc? I know ultimately our goal is to get them eating everything, but maybe that will buy some time?

My son loves fruits and veggies but one thing you could try is a low fat dip option. All kids love to dip things. I put ranch dressing powder in plain yogurt with some milk instead of mayo so it is lowfat. Also yogurt is really good for digestions. I also feed my son canned green beans and carrots that are room temp. They have more vitamins the less they are cooked but they are still tender enough that he can chew them. Hope that helps.

If she loves pasta, you can give her spaghetti- most spaghetti sauces have a serving of vegetables, just like meat, you can give her peanut butter and it will still have protein. Another thing I did with my daughter (which I'm not entirely sure is safe) is gave her the V8 fruit splash. She really loves it and it gives her a full serving of fruit and vegetables.
