Your could start with a basic tomato pasta sauce. I think everybody loves pasta.

Cooked carrots
Oregano, either fresh or dried
Marjarom, either fresh or dried
olive olive oil

Cook all these together in a pan and then puree.

Serve with pasta and a sprinkling of grated cheese

For picky eaters I just hide the stuff they "don't like" inside foods they love. I cook and puree carrots into muffins, spaghetti sauce, etc so she doesn't know she's getting the healthy good stuff in her favorite foods. Or I flat out lie. "No, sweetie, there isn't any sour cream in this twice baked potato. Why do you ask?"

That said, can you provide a ballpark list of what your family is picky about? Some may be legitimate & ones that can easily be worked around in the quest for nice easy healthy meals. Others may fall into the "suck it up" category - lol!
Extortion works, too! The "or else, no dessert" arm-twisting tactic.

Welcome, NMmamma! Everyone here at DC is generous with help and info.

You might also look into casseroles. Many recipes are easy. Some people feel more comfortable with oven-cooking than stovetop-cooking. And, it's easy to hide "picky" stuff in them. You can start with mac-n-cheese.
