I know exactly how you feel. I have a 3 and 18 mth old and my husband has 2 kids, 10 and 6, from a previous relationship. Both of his kids are picky eaters and it has been hard to have my kids eating healthy. I had made the decision a while ago that I would no longer be making separate meals for everyone at dinner just because they didn't like it or so they thought because most of the time they never even tried it. You really need the support of your husband to back you up with this if you decide this approach because when you make dinner and tell everyone this is it and if you don't like it then you don't eat, their gonna look at Dad and he has to reenforce it. It will be hard at first and they will complain, but eventually get used to it. I also try to make sure I make each of their favorite meals throughout the week, that way no one feels left out. Also stop buying the junk food and then they will have no choice to eat whats in the house. I hope this helps.
