My son is 4 years old and my daughter is 2 years old. They are the WORST eaters! My daughter only wants to eat cereal bars, waffles, spaghetti, taco, mac n cheese, pizza and french fries. Occasionally she'll eat spaghetios, chicken nuggets, fish sticks or ask for something off my plate but not often. My son is also not a good eater. He will eat an occasional mix veggie and been mash potatoes but not much more than my daughter. I cook almost every night and we always sit down as a family but there are a lot of nights when neither will eat anything I make. For instance, tonight I made steak, mashed potatoes, and mixed veggies. My son only ate potatoes and my daughter didn't eat anything. I'm so frustrated and don't know how to get them to eat. My oldest son will eat just about anything. While my 1 year old basically eats more than my 2 yr old everyday. Any ideas would be great! I am also a picky eater but I have been very careful to expose my children to all types of food, but I'm starting to get discouraged about cooking every night when half of the food is thrown away.
