Help! I'm a SAHM with 3 kids, ages 6,3,&2. I try to plan lunch/dinner menus to try to make grocery shopping a little easier. Well, my husband works late twice a week. My dilemma is finding dinners for me and the kids. My 3 year old has become VERY picky within the last year. Everything I give her now she says she doesn't like, even though months ago she did like it.. And it's EVERYTHING! Like all veggies, fruits; the only thing she will eat is chicken nuggets, chicken noodles (Ramen), hot dogs, and hamburger helper. But if I'm not giving her chips, cheetos, or french fries with it, (which I don't give in to her) she won't eat anything with it. I know kids go through phases, my son would only eat hot dogs when he was a toddler for awhile, but the problem is she doesn't eat anything with her main food. Also I'm trying to think of meals that I can make just me and the kids when my husband works late. But when I make something, my 6yr old is usually the only one to eat a little b/c my 2yr old eats just enough to breathe and my 3yr complains about all of it! So I don't want to cook for an hour and no one eat but me!! Then 30 min later everyone is hungry! Anyway, I'm wondering if anyone has any suggestions! I've surfed the internet and am out of ideas!! Thank you!
