    I feel your pain but I have no doubt that you'll get there. Maybe you can all have a scroll through some of the healthy/kid friendly recipes on taste.com and each child can choose a dish to try.

    Yeah I'll have to get back onto doing that, and getting them to cook it. Even though I don't feel it helps with the eating, what I do hope it does it teaches them that if someone goes to the effort of cooking them a meal, it's really impolite and ungrateful to sit there at the table and pull faces and make "eeeewww" noises, like they do to me every night.

    DS1 is just like that - I lovingly made hidden veg sausage rolls the other night and he was all "GROSSSSSS!" yeah cheers mate!.

    The prep and the cooking etc.... will, I agree teach them good life skills, so it's definitely worth the effort.

    tonight I made a vegie crocodile for DD ... her idea. Cucumber with cherry tomatoes and cheese and a few other bits for decoration.

    But usually I make vegie sausage rolls. I put in a small amount of sausage meat and a lot of pureed vegies ... with a drained tin of baked beans and/or chick peas to make it all the 'sausage roll' colour. Works a treat and she loves them.

    Have you ever seen or read the blog of veggie smugglers? Wendy is great, and she has great advice on how to get kids to eating veg- start by hiding, and then slowly make the pieces bigger and bigger.

    If nothing else, you may pick up a few good recipes, and have a laugh at her blog

    And btw- I know all about rude kids at the dinner table. I could serve up tue finest meal in the world and my boys will still b1tch, whinge and moan about it and fight me tooth and nail.. And then once I finally coerce them into taking a bite, lo and behold they like it! Doesn't stop them from doing it the next night though. Over. It.

    I'm relieved to hear of a couple of others who have kids that whinge about dinner- I mentioned it to my mum once and she was horrified that my kids were so rude and that "you kids NEVER did that when you were little".. it made me feel like I'd done something wrong and that my kids were the only rude ones in the world. :/ Other than that though their manners are wonderful!

    Off to check out that blog now...

    When mine are too fussy , seems to come and go in stages? I force them to have one bite only of each thing. And eventually they find a few things they hate less than others lol and even more eventually they just eat those things they hated less. If that makes sense?
    I insist they take one bite of each thing every single night. I'm not really tough on it, so I don't care if it's a tiny bite or if they hate it so much they spit it out. When they are eating a readonable selection of veg I don't keep making them ie my 10yo eats lots of veg but hates carrot and way I serve it. As he eats the other veg I do t care if he won't eat carrot but my 5yo hates every single veg so I make him have tiny bites anyway in hope that he will get used to it and find some he likes.

    Yes I do that, and I won't give up on that. But it's been years and barely any improvement...

    I recently started doing mashed/puréed cauliflower instead of potato (boil/steam
    It in some stock). It's fantastic and my 4yo hasn't noticed the difference.

    What about making homemade Chips/crisps from diff veg by slicing thinly spraying w oil and pop in the oven.
    I hate traditional beetroot but thin beetroot are a great snack.

    I'll just add my whinge.

    Miss12 is currently undergoing medical investigations to find out if she cannot digest animal fats.

    She has always been tiny for her age, but the last two years she hasn't grown much at all. The reason given on the test forms is "failure to thrive".

    So she'll only eat a small amount of lean meat (roast beef, corned silverside, ham, lasagne, etc) and reject any greasy meat (chicken, sausages, etc). But she is a normal fussy kid and also refuses many foods just because she doesn't like the taste (fish, nuts, legumes, etc).

    I really don't think fruit, carrots, lettuce, and avocado is enough to sustain her. (At least she'll eat avocados though keeping them available is expensive.)
