...When my picky 6 year old gave me fits...I would cook a beef or chicken pot
pie,break it up, and Serve it on Top of a pile of Buttered,Instant Rice.Also, he
liked Macaroni and cheese with cooked bits of Polish Sausage in it.I would also
heat up a can of Dinty Moore Stew and serve it on top of Cooked Noodles.He
liked Rice-A-Roni with Hamburger meat added.I always lightly salted his food
to give it a more Intense taste.Jill.

AM also a single mum with a picky 6 year old...

I use a system that seems to work more nutritionally than rotating pesto pasta and fish fingers. I thought too much about what she would actually eat, eg, pasta, rice, potatoes, chicken, white fish and so I do a meal of a thing I know she will like accompanied by a bit she may not and keep trying it.

Eg, she liked rice before, will now eat egg fried. SHe liked chicken, will now eat chicken with (raw) peppers in a wrap. She liked pasta, so got her onto fresh ravioli (the one with tomato and mozzarella filling) etc. It is slightly improving. I always also insist she has even one tiny tiny bit of something new. SHe has recently discovered she doesn;t mind spinach...
