My daughter is fairly picky and doesn't like to try anything new or something that looks "different" from what she normally eats. Yesterday while visiting a museum, we ate lunch in their food court. We got her exactly what she asked for: chicken strips (which they cut up into bite-size pieces), potato smiley faces (which she's eaten at home before) and applesauce. After eating some of the applesauce and maybe 2 small bites of chicken and potato, she worked herself up so much about "making" herself eat it that she threw up at the table. My husband and I discussed it later and feel like we've failed her as parents for not figuring out how to correct this eating issue. She starts kindergarten in 2 weeks, and we're worried that this will happen at school and then she won't want to go. Please help!!!!
