I have a two year old who is a VERY picky eater, so every meal I usually give her two choices for what she wants to eat so she feels like she has some control over what she eats. This strategy worked for a little while but now it's not working. At dinner and breakfast, even when she picks what she wants, once I give it to her she says, "No, I don't like this." and refuses to eat unless I make her a hot dog or toast. It's getting frustrating because I don't want her to get used to having just whatever she wants for her meals, I want her to have a well rounded diet. Any suggestions for encouraging her to eat a more broad spectrum of healthy food?
