Picky Eater strikes again

Lydia is such a picky, picky eater!!! I am having a time with her and her "I don't like that!"

On Monday night she refused to eat ANYTHING on her plate. As we were all finishing I asked her, "Lydia are you hungry?"

She responded, "Um-uh" and shook her head yes. She had licked her chicken and made so at least she attempted to try it.... right???

Anyway, her answer broke my heart and I did something I swore I wouldn't do for my kids..... I gave her a bowl of Cheerios with soymilk.

I have been against just giving them cereal because my younger brother was always given a bowl of cereal when he refused to eat his meal. And now as a college student, he is still so picky.... now this might JUST be his personality and have nothing to do with giving him cereal.... but I've always wondered....

But how could I let me little down from the table knowing that she was hungry??? I know that if she was really hungry, she would have eaten her dinner and not been so I know that argument well....

What do I do with my picky eater????

Good question. I wish I knew the answer to that one! I grew up liking pretty much everything, but all 3 of my siblings were so picky that they would gag and throw up the food that they didn't like. They are still all picky to this day, and my mom tried so hard to stop it! I think some people just don't like certain flavors. My kids are being picky lately too. UGH.
