Do You Have a Picky Eater?

Do you have a picky eater?  As parents and teachers, we all know that children can be particular with what they do and don’t eat.  Eating (or not eating) is the one thing they have control of.  Many families struggle to come up with new ideas for meals that are fun and nutritious.  Here are some tried and true meal ideas we have come up with over the years!

-Chicken nuggets

-Home made Macaroni and Cheese

-Home made Pizza (whole wheat crust, naan bread, english muffin, etc.) 


-Whole wheat wraps sliced to look like sushi

-Breakfast foods for lunch or dinner

-Waffle sandwiches (cream cheese, chocolate hazelnut spread, fruit spreads, or any nut butters)

-Grilled cheese

-Quesadillas (fill with all sorts of healthy veggies and proteins) 

-Sandwiches (lunch meats, cheese, fruit spreads, nut butters, ham/turkey/veggie burger) 

-Use cookie cutter shapes to cut sandwiches to make finger sandwiches

-Lunch meat and cheese rolled up then sliced like sushi

-Cheese and crackers

-Yogurt and applesauce with a straw through the lid

-Sweet potato fries and tots

-Baked potato

-Fish (try it, they might surprise you and like it) 

-Fruits and veggies (get them in anywhere you can) 


Please take notice of the most chokable foodsaccording to www.familyeducation.com!

-Hot dogs





-Peanut butter


-Gum and hard candy




Who wants a pancake,
Sweet and piping hot?
Good little Grace looks up and says,
“I’ll take the one on top.”
Who else wants a pancake,
Fresh off the griddle?
Terrible Theresa smiles and says,
“I’ll take the one in the middle.”
