My daughter, age 10, will not eat anything other than mac n cheese, chicken nuggets, cheese dogs (not plain hot dogs, cheese dogs), sweets, Peanut Butter and Jelly, and some fruit. I do not know how to get her to try ANYTHING new, even if it is full of things she likes separately. We had chicken enchiladas last night, with tortillas, chicken, and cheese. She likes all of those things, but would not eat it. Not a single bite. She refuses to try anything. She wants to become healthy, but it is not easy, when she doesn't eat veggies, meat, or anything healthy. She tells me she is hungry, but flat refuses to eat the healthy things I offer. She also will not drink much water. She says she is hungry, so I tell her to drink some water and she goes into hissy fits, "THAT WILL NOT WORK, I'M HUNGRY." Can anyone please give me some new ideas on getting her to eat what we put in front of her? PLEASE!!!
