|What if your children are 6 and 7 and more savy? My concern is not only that they aren't getting enough nutrition but that they aren't getting enough calories. They are both very lanky boys and I would love to fatten them up a bit.
One of my children will only eat green vegetables - no other color, only apples, oranges and berries, toast, mashed potatoes, dry cereal and very small quantities of meat. His drink of choice is water, and won't eat anything sweet except plain chocolate, chocolate chip cookies and sugar cookies. And he hates all pasta. The other is pickie across the board, but hates potatoes and most meat. I've tried grinding up granola and sneeking it into their chocolate chip cookies and they can tell. I've pureed zuchini, which has almost no taste, and put it in soups and sauces, and they can tell. I give them vitamens every day, but I would love for them to just eat a full healthy meal without complaint. Any suggestions on how to add variety and calories to their meals without a fight?
