My 6 year old used to love fruit and vegetables when she was a baby, now I can only get her to eat apples, pears, watermelon for fruit, and corn for vegetables. She is on a medicine for behavior and doctor said it will cause her to gain weight. I have noticed that she has put on some extra pounds. How can I get her to eat more of a selection of fruit and vegetables other than for dinner. I give her sugar-free koolaid in her lunch for school along with a sandwich, fruit cup, 90 calorie cookie pack and 100 calorie cracker pack. Is that wrong??? I no longer allow sweets in the house and she seems to be adjusting well to that, but I would feel better getting her to eat a variety of different fruits and vegetables. Or find some good healthy desserts.
