My daughter has always been somewhat of a picky eater and its been pretty manageable, but in the last few weeks she's gotten just completely unreasonable. For example she refused to eat her scrambled eggs the other morning (a meal she usually loves) because there were a few tiny little black pepper flakes on them (nothing new). I eventually convinced her to eat the ones without visible "spots" but she's been doing that kind of stuff with everything lately. My question is...should I cater to her in order to get her to eat (I'm afraid if I do I'll be encouraging the behavior) or do I go with the "if you don't like it too bad" approach (but I'm afraid if I do that she'll skip too many meals.) Opinions???.....
