when i was a young mother, a study was done by a Dr. Gisela. in a controlled environment, they were offered an array of vegs. meats, cakes etc. everything you could think of. they found that over the course the kids ate a balanced diet. i did the same thing with my kids, and quit worrying about it. they ate many vegs. and as adults the still do. lighten up , all will be well.

Babe, right on When I have my grand kids, they graze from trays of veggies, fruits, at lunch time it is almost like an Italian antipasto only I make small sandwiches for them, tuna, deviled egg, pbj, I take left over roast and make a meat spread or ham, yep it takes time but I have them help and can they eat. They also love soups,beans...I'm lucky I guess because they will try anything once and are honest about what they like and dislike. It's fun fixing things for them.
