What to do with a picky eater?

I have a 5 y.o. who refuses to eat anything other than mac n cheese and carrot sticks!! I've tried lots of fruits and other veggies but I dont want to force it and make the issue worse. Anyone else deal with this? Any tips?

Seems to be normal at this age. Just keep offerring and don't push anything too har, you dont want to get into a food power struggle!! 0 Likes

This is always tough! I went through the same thing with my 4 year old, she grew out of it eventually :) 0 Likes
