I am desperate to improve my dd's diet and get her eating a wider range of foods. Any suggestions on where I can get a good rewards chart. I have seen a few but nothing quite right. I thought about making my own but just not sure how to do it, how to include rewarding her for trying something new and rewarding vegetables, yoghurt, etc. I am not so worried about fruit at the moment because I can get her to have some fruits but if that is included that is fine. She is nearly 4 and almost phobic about trying new foods.

It has a free to download 'try' chart that we used with some success. Good luck. My DSS is coming out of a fussy phase (he is 5).

Hmmm, I'm not to sure about rewards for food. I don't know if it's healthy for kids to think eatting=reward.
I've thought about this a lot, I'm a PT & my DD comes to work most days. She's surrounded by weight & food issues (she's 3)
I've read her social skills books about how it's good to have a go/try new things & it's okay if you don't like it. Praise for trying something new is enough for her.
I serve DD exactly what we as adults are eatting. Including nuts, veggies, meat, salad etc. she gets biscuits & treats too but the main foods are what I'm having. No other options. Eat it or wait till next meal. She doesn't eat everything & I never force her, but she's getting much better.. And I just realised I'm talking about myself lol.
Try leading by example & praise when she follows suit.

To put you in the picture, when my dd was a baby I made all of my own foods for her, purees, baby lamb ragout slow cooked until the meat fibres fell apart for her with no salt, sugar, only the flavour of fresh food. I made custard and blanc mange. I was never precious about the food I gave her, always family foods or a version of but it has come to nothing. She is willful in the extreme and there have been time when she have pretty much lived off cheese, or watermelon or whatever else is the flavour of the moment.
