I'm in the same boat. My son is ridiculously picky!

Crystal I would try the pancake idea, but my son won't try pancakes... >.

I would also watch for little burps. My son is a very picky eater and when he was at the doctors, they noticed him making little burps and suggested that acid reflux might be the cause of his picky eating.

The suggestion I was given for getting my son to try new foods was to present the same foods so he would become familiar with them, but put no pressure on him to eat them.

I admit it, I do not only use organic healthy foods. I try to use fresh ingredients, and buy local & organic as often as possible, But I'm guilty as charged when it comes to doling out red vines and cheese sticks as a snack. however we have fresh steamed or raw veggies at every meal. We also use whole grain flour, breads, and recipes. My secret weapon is believe it or not---- PANCAKES. You can put anything in them and nobody knows. leftover squash/peas/carrots/rutabagas? Blend them up and bake them in your pancakes with some blueberries and viola' NOBODY KNOWS! Even my husband can't tell. I mean come on, they're just gonna pour syrup all over anything anyway.
