DD is an okay eater - she was amazing before diagnosis of coeliac disease (she had a cook a nursery who was very adventurous, although didn't translate to home) at that time she became frightened of food especially trying new things (I suspect she associated food with pain etc)

So now she does eat but I need more ideas of things she will eat. This is her general selection of dinners...

Roast chicken/turkey dinner/casserole
Spag Bol/chilli and rice/pasta tomato sauce (hidden veg) and olives/ Mac and cheese
Homemade soups (carrot and lentil, butternut squash)
Chicken and vegetable curry
Things (fish fingers etc) with chips (this is new - I've never been so pleased!)

im actually stuck what else to give her - we struggle to eat together because of DHs hours.

She won't eat anything spicy. I was a very fussy eater as a child and she's better than I was but I would like her to eat more obviously

I actually have no idea what to give her for dinner tonight!

Toad in the hole with g/f batter (Phil Vickery recipe), v mild chilli with rice or on jackets. Jackets with variety if pick'n'mix topping (Heinz beans are g/f). Fajitas using a mild seasoning, ditto tacos or enchiladas/ burritos (I use B free wraps). Chicken breasts wrapped in bacon and stuffed with whatever u fancy (sundries toms, pesto, mozzarella, Mrs crimbles stuffing). Crispy breadcrumbed chicken (Tesco g/f ones are yum) in a wrap with shredded lettuce and garlic mayo. We enjoy all these quite regularly (coeliac).
