    Let them know that's all that's on offer. Consistency is the key.

    I have, iv said eat your breaky their is nothing else. iv also said this or nothing. and they dont seem to care, this kinda thing happens at dinner sometimes when one dosnt wanna eat the other wont, then they expect dessert! (dont know if thats the right one lol sorry if its not) and i never give them it. they end up going to bed without dinner, and the thing is i always give them things they like for dinner. and they just be silly. so they will have nothing else now till morning tea. its just so annoying

    Have you tried putting them in separate rooms to eat? I'd also ensure no tv or toys etc until food is gone.

    My kids 6yrs and 3yrs have started doing this with nearly every meal we put in front of them even before we have finished cooking and they haven't even tasted yet and yep as soon as one says something (normally the 6yr old) the other one starts. It is very frustrating and disheartening to stand and cook good nutritious meals every night for them to say yuck, they are told to eat what they are given or nothing else to the next meal but I usually cave slightly if they didn't eat dinner and give them a plain biscuit before bed

    My oldest is the same. Drives me nuts. One day he'll eat (for example) porridge...the next, tells me he hates it. Can't win with food in this house. I tried not offering him anything else, it didn't work with him, he'd scream the house down (at 4.5yo mind you) so now if he doesn't eat what i give him, he's allowed to help himself to fruit. There's always fruit available at any time here.....but i can't say i'm a fan of the half eaten apples i keep finding around the house (the dog loves it though!).

    Fussy eaters, I have one. He is shocking. Seriously drives me nuts. I hate preparing a nice dinner, he has 2 bites and then its mum I'm tired aka your dinner sucks and I don't want to eat it.

    Now depending on time, I will give him verges first(only eats potato and carrots) then whatever I have cooked after like sausage or skewers.

    My DD is SO fussy! I give her kids multi vitamins everyday because she rarely eats veggies even if they are grated into things!!

    Luckily she eats heaps of fruit! The amount of times she has gone to bed with just a banana sandwich for dinner I couldn't even count on 2 hands!!!

    My ds wont touch jam with a ten foot pole ... or peanut butter etc, if its not vegemite its not good enough.

    Dinner wont be touched unless it's meat n veg, anything else is not edible to ds.

    He is improving, we had a stage there he lived on vegemite
