I am tired of saying "My daughter is a picky eater". The response I get is that of a typical parent with a picky eater. "Oh I understand, my kid only wants plain chicken or mac and cheese or nuggets day in and out!" Oh that would be wonderful. But my 2 year old doesn't like mac and cheese... though she will eat hot dog 'occasionally' she wants honey mustard or peppercorn ranch with them. Pizza? Kids love it right!? Not mine!!! She'll eat it if my nephew is over because he is eating it... but that's it. As for snacks, she prefers apples (whole not sliced), yogurts of all kinds (but not chocolate pudding apparently chocolate is ICKY?!?!?!), Favorite snack she'll throw a fit for.... Popcorn!!!!! today I made myself a left over flatbread pizza with tomato sauce and parm cheese only... then I top it with smoked salmon! What does my kid do... comes over and picks off all my smoked salmon and eats it. She made sure to wipe off the sauce first. Why? Pizza icky mama... mmmmm fish!!! OMG!!!! Do you know how annoying this is!? I made mac and cheese with peas and ground turkey last night... I ended up giving her carrot sticks and celery sticks because she wouldn't eat that for dinner. Confused I am confused?!?! Who else deals with this strangeness?! I get that parenting magazine, and I look online for help.... but apparently I must be the only one with a picky eater who has expensive taste. I can't do custom foods all the time. Sometimes I just want mac and cheese you know?! She LIKES Indian food with curry... but WON'T eat a hamburger from McDonalds. She will pick the meat off and dip some of it... but prefers her french fries only, with any kind of sauce you could think of other then ketchup!!! ARGH!!!
