My Kids Won't Eat!

Article excerpt

Do they pout at their plates? throw brussels sprouts on the floor? try these ideas for turning picky eaters into chowhounds. Pick a veggie of the week. take the kids shopping and have them select a different veggie or fruit to try each week. that way they'll taste new foods they may actually (gasp!) like. Have fun with finger food. cut some of the meal into cute, small shapes with cookie cutters. try fish-shaped pieces of salmon with a side of goldfish crackers. Lure the nature lover. Build a broccoli forest; create a friendly spider with a round slice of cucumber and eight pepperstrip legs; connect grapes or cherry tomatoes with dabs of cream cheese for a silly caterpillar.
