I have a family of 3, myself, my husband and a daughter, who just turned 2. As a whole we need to eat more healthy. I cook almost every night, but we don't not eat hardly any veggies. My husband is an extremely picky eater, who will not try anything new. He eats no veggies, no fruit, no fish, no sauces or condiments, won't try wheat pasta...you get the idea. This not only limits our healthy meals, but doesn't give me the opportunity to try any new recipies. I am not sure how to fix this problem, is it fair for me to tell my husband that he is on is own a few nights a week, so I can make fish or recipies including veggies? 2nd question, even if I just make a veggie as a side(which I often do), how to I insist that my daughter eat some of her veggies, when her father will never touch them. I enjoy a lot of things he doesn't and it makes it hard. I often cook him steak and myself fish or what have you, but when it comes to getting her to eat something she may not want, or needs to get used to, how can I say, you need to eat this spinach dish while Daddy eats a hamburger or whatever. Any thoughts or suggestions are appreciated...She loves fruit, but she can not just eat carrots and corn as her only veggies(my hunband doesn't eat the carrots with her by the way).
