picky picky eaters

So moms need your advice for some time now my kids have been very very picky as to what foods they eat me and my husband buy dinners to make and they will not eat them we have started to buy TV dinners for them and hotdogs peanut butter sandwich sometimes braylon and Ciara will eat off my plate what I am eating but will not eat it on there own plate we are in a pickle please helps cause the way they are eating is not really the way we want to feed them

    My son is a picky eater too. He likes burgers, pizza, and unhealthy snacks, but I'm trying to add more veggies and fruit into his diet. His appetite just fine, but he prefers unhealthy food. Si I'm kind of playing around, and he can have pizza ones a week, Burger King every Sunday after church, but he has to eat the food we have at home. I never force him to eat everything on the plate, he will get hungry and ask for a meal. May be try to add more of their favorite fruit, search different recipes and cook together.

      I have done that before were they will eat what I make but don't like really doing that cause growing up my parents made me eat what ever they made and I hated that soo much I find it kinda wrong cause i see it like you would not want someone to make you eat something you don't like I just buy them food that they will eat which is something i'm starting to not like so i'm in a bit of trouble lol

        kids are weird.. but hold tight its just a faze they go through plus they might be testing your patience with them. Have u tried taking them to the store and letting them pick out the dinner? May be with a few limits like if they chose hotdogs ask them if they like chili or and cheese. that worked with my youngest who would eat just fruit and junk now she will at least do a "No Thank You" bit and try the foods i offer and if all else fails i give her a pediasure (can't spell) the drink doc recommends for kids who don't eat all food groups
