I was wondering if anyone else struggles with trying to get their child to eat a larger range of food or even just try something new. My son is 7 and will only eat pancakes, pepperoni pizza, pastry or scrambled eggs as his main meals. He won't eat fruit, vegetables (except for olives), meat, breads and cereals. Snacks are just things like crackers and plain biscuits. There is a very narrow selection of treats that he will try but he doesn't get this very often. I am very concerned that he may end up lacking nutrients in his diet. I've tried reintroducing the same food to him over and over, getting him to help cook, help with the grocery shopping and trying to hide extra ingredients in his food but nothing seems to help. Any ideas???
