My son is the fussiest eater and it is slowly driving me nuts!!!! As a baby he was also extremely fussy and difficult to feed! His diet is very limited as he is so unwilling to try new foods. I have never forced him to eat things that are 'out there' or used food as punishment/reward! However bribery lately has helped getting him to try some things with success. Though now as he has started year 1 at a new school, he is being so stubborn with food!!! I am at my wits end with what to give him for lunch that is healthy but appealing! have started a sticker chart, but really need some suggestions! Dont need recipes just ideas on how to get hime to feel confident trying new foods.

Just keep putting them on his plate. Don't give him large servings of anything new, make them small. My daughter is 6 and the same way. I think a lot of kids out there are picky.
