My children don't like my food, can you give me any ideas?

My family just moved from Nigeria to Canada and feeding them has been a tug of war and am not winning.
I need ideas to get my 4 children eating and make cooking fun again?
They are 14 (F), 9 (M), 7 (F) & 4 (M).
They love Pizza and burgers though but when they start getting that all the time they begin to hate it.
They also love cakes.
They like bread but only white (which I am trying to stop the from eating), they manage wheat loaves but no exotic loaves like rye bread, etc.
They like Pasta.
They like rice sometimes too but how many times a week can I make rice?
With them there's no trying new things.
They are easily bored and I don't want to spend the rest of my life in the Kitchen.
I don't know what to do.
Please HELP!!!

Go to the library and check out several cook books. Try new dishes that have ingredients in it that they like. Also, having them help you cook these meals may make them more interested in trying them.
