One of my girls is a very picky eater. I have found that if she makes her own lunch, she will eat it. Well, breakfast has been a problem for a while. I told her that if she didn't like what we were eating she could make something different for herself but wasn't allowed to complain and tantrum over it. She made herself many a french omelet after that. Since we bought a Blendtec, we've now introduced the family to smoothies. She now has her own signature smoothie that she likes to make and share with the family. An added bonus - spinach is well hidden and she will even add it herself!
