My 17 month old daughter is fairly picky to, but she does eat cereal straight from the box! She loves cherios and cinnamon grahams and things like that which are all good for her as they are fortified with iron and vitamins. My daughter will pretty much eat anything off my plate but put it on hers and she will not eat it. She also likes to sneak a bit of food for example if I am making sandwiches for the rest of the family she will take some ham or chees and eat it. Basically if she thinks she should not be eatting it she will eat it. Also what I used to do with my older boys was make food fun. Funny faces food for example mash potato with carrot circles for eyes, peas for eye brows and sausages for hair ets....They loved this I even used a tiny amount of food colouring once to dye there pasta blue which they thought was hilarious.

my daughters are really picky but i had to feed them my own food to get them to start eating just keep trying new different foods and see what she will eat. We started with like pops or honeycombs cereals they seemed to like those pretty well.
