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 thoughts

7 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 sauce
2 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.
