I know how you feel. My 4 yr old won't eat hardley anything. However, she will eat the heck out of fruit. I have bought 4 bags of oranges in the last few days. She and my 5 yr old would eat them all at one time if I'd let them, and that goes for any fruit pretty much. Veggies are a little harder. They like them raw with dip or corn on the cob but anything else other than the insides of green beans they won't eat. I'm not sure really how to change their eating habits. I guess I'll try different things. Tomorrow night I am cooking saute'd chicken and mushrooms and maybe I can get them to eat a veggie that way (are mushrooms veggies?) They will also eat pickles and black olives like there's no tomorrow!
