Picky Eater

What to do with a 4-year-old who only eats pasta, scrambled eggs, Trix cereal, yogurt and applesauce? It's not like we want to give her a diet supplement. We want her to eat a wider variety of foods. To be fair, she has recently started eating a few more things - a bagel and cream cheese; the whole thing, not just the cream cheese part. About two weeks ago she ate part of a peanut butter sandwich, the first peanut butter she has been willing to try. There was something else recently, but I don't remember what it was. When she really surprises me by trying a new food, I fall over in shock and amazement. This is usually enough to get her to eat another bite or two. Hey - whatever it takes!

been there done that one. Our 4 1/2 year old is jsut startign to get out of it. However, I do find wife or I feeding her from tiem to time because it takes her forever to eat her food. Like asy 30min to an hour after we haev all finished. Oh well.
