My grandsons are just 7, 4 and 2 and two of them are picky eaters.The two year old eats anything, and a lot of it. If I'm going to have them for a week...possible thoughts7 breakfasts....4 days hot oatmeal and milk (plus raisins for the non picky kid), 2 days their favorite yogurt with blueberries added, toast and jam, Sunday scrambled eggs, hash browns, crisp eat-with-your-fingers bacon, melon or mandarins, (and good coffee for Big Momma and spouse.)5 school and preschool lunches:(no peanuts/peanut butter allowed in school) 1 day jam sandwiches, hard boiled egg, green peas in their pods,raw carrots, grapes or pieces of apple. 1 day bagel with cream cheese, celery sticks, small pack apple sauce2 days deli turkey sandwiches, slices of cucumber, melon pieces, a very small cookie.1 day special treat ( Dutch) chocolate sprinkles on sandwiches,previous night's cooked carrots, sliver of chicken, mandarin pieces or small banana.I won't bore you with my possible dinners but life is easier if you have a plan, and then you can be flexible and dump it to go with the flow...Pretty soon you find what they like or don't like in their school lunches!Talking it over/shopping with the kids as others have suggested is always good. My grandsons know that "something green with every meal" means a fruit or veggie MUST be eaten.
