I am the mother of a picky eater. It is pushing me to the edge and those of you who are also mothers of picky eaters will understand that this is only a little bit of an exaggeration. Dash-1 is a picky, picky, picky eater. In part he is a child of utter routine and habit but he also has a lot of problems with severe reflux that took until he was almost two to get under control and then add to the list his allergy to peanuts and egg. His gastro says that all kids go thru a favorite food stage and to some extent are picky eaters but that Dash-1 probably learned to favor foods that were easier on his stomach. Then we found out that eggs and peanuts could kill him and widdled down the food list even more (we cant even get stuff that was made in factories that also process that stuff).
So I am hoping that someone out there can throw me a life line. I need some kid friendly ideas for healthy snacks, lunch and the occasional dinner. Dash-1 might like the same old thing but I'm very much over it and would like to see something besides a grilled cheese sandwich in his repertoire.
