Parenting / Fussy kids!
« on: May 10, 2013, 02:50:58 PM »
Hi, I have been convinced that I wanted to improve mine and my kids diet for ages, not to lose weight, just to be healthier, so no fads.  I wanted a good long term approach that made sense and gave us as much variety of foods as possible.  After much research I have decided to give Paleo a try.  We're only a few days in and I'm loving it - haven't even had any real cravings YET!  ;D  My problem is my kids.

I have two girls aged 8 & 6 and they are both fussy eaters in different ways.  My eldest will eat some vegetables, doesn't like much meat (only minced beef, bacon and sausage) and won't entertain fresh fruit.  My youngest loves meat (apart from minced beef), loves fresh fruit but won't touch vegetables.  Neither of them like eggs.  They both ate quite a lot of bread (toast in the morning and sandwiches in their packed lunch) and my youngest lived on pasta at every meal, but no sauces, she won't eat sauce or gravy with anything. I am really struggling to find alternatives that they will eat and feel as though I am starving them at the moment  :( I can't even say that one meal in particular is more problematic as everything I give them they hate and refuse to eat.  :'(

If anyone has any suggestions as to what I can give them to eat it would be much appreciated.  :)
