    Yes my pre schooler is an extreme picky eater

  2. Carlotta C says:

    Not yet; but he is not on solids yet.

  3. Deanna Carney says:

    Picky doesn’t even begin to describe my 4yr old. She hates all vegetables but corn. The one staple I can hide is “Cheese” soup with is cream of Broccolli or Cauliflower that I make every other week to make sure she’s getting some more veggies in her diet. Meat, cheese & dairy are not a problem.

  4. Catharine (Lou) M. says:

    I can’t believe what my little guy eats. Not a picky eater at all, and very thin for his 22 months

  5. carla d says:

    my eldest is the worst eater! He was in a home daycare and they catered to his ‘requests’ now he only wants butter pasta, cheese pizza or burgers, so frustrating!! I make him eat our meals but I usually have to blend vegetables or he doesnt finish his food. Vitamins help out so much for him! This is an awesome prize!

  6. My youngest is a horrible eater. When he was 2.5- 3 if he didn’t like the texture of the food he would gag and throw it up. He’s a lot better now but still pretty much eats only chicken, ham, rice,grilled cheese, corn & peas. Refuse to stress just keep trying and never making it a battle

  7. Jessica says:

    My preschooler is a picky eater! I found ways around this by mashing/pureeing and hiding veggies/fruits into meatballs, brownies, pasta sauces, and soups!!!! Now she enjoys munching on apples and strawberries herself and actively asks for meatballs and shoves them in her mouth without ‘knowing’ it’s REALLY good for her-actually BETTER than good because I still continue to ‘hide’ ingredients!!!!

  8. Kristy says:

    My daughter’s picky eating seems to go in stages. One week she is ‘off’ any sort of fruit, the next week she is devouring fruit!

  9. Jillena Hawkins says:

    I have 3 kids (5,3,1) and my 5 year old is the pickiest eater out of all of them. She eats noodles,broccoli,peanut butter sandwiches and any type of berry. Hates juice. She will only drink milk or ice water. It is very difficult to plan meals and have her eat what I make.

  10. Katrina C says:

    I have one picky eater and one that eats everything I put infront of him. We like to dip everything seems to help 🙂

  11. Grace says:

    Yes, I do. My kindergartener has a diet consisting only of corn dogs, Nutella sandwiches, lunchables and spaghetti O’s. If we make him eat whatever we’re having for dinner, he literally will make himself sick and be throwing up the next day. We’ve decided allowing him to be picky, but still offering dairy, fresh fruit and veggies is an okay compromise.

  12. Mary Lou says:

    My daughter used to be a fantastic eater but now that she is almost 4, she likes to express her power when she can. Although she used to love cheese, now she won’t even let us put it on her plate. These foods can change week to week but the message is the same. I will be glad when this “phase” is over.

  13. Grace says:

    We do. Our kindergartener’s diet consists of only corn dogs, Nutella sandwiches, Spaghetti O’s and lunchables. If we try to convince him to eat a real dinner with us (e.g. lasagna, etc), then he will literally make himself sick and be throwing up the next day. We’ve decided our compromise would be to let him eat what he wants, and offer fresh dairy, fruit and vegetables and vitamins to round out his diet.

  14. Katharine W says:

    My daughters are picky eaters. They are very specific in what they eat. It has to be their father’s pasta or else they won’t eat it. Veggies are questionable and must be broccoli or carrots (and only on occasion).

  15. Cassandra Eastman says:

    My son is 3 1/2 and is just now starting to get a little picky with little things, but for the most part he’s not too bad. My 14 month old daughter will eat anything.

  16. mongupp says:

    yes i have a daughter who doesnt eat vegetables…she won’t even eat one little green pea!

  17. Candace P. says:

    We have a young who is lactose intolerant and does not like meat. It is a challenge to serve other foods he can have and will eat to ensure he still receives adequate vitamins.

  18. sarah says:

    Picky to say the least! Meat only one day, bread the next! Some days it is hard to find “the food of the day”! Little monkey – he can go without veggies for meals, then do a squash binge!

  19. My daughter wasn’t before but now she started to pick out just the food that taste sweet.

  20. Lee-Ann Sleegers says:

    Yes Miss R is picky but she is getting better. Rule is you need to try everything on plate.

  21. Emma L Bartlett says:

    my toddler seems to love fruit and veggies but no meat, we love to hide it on pizza and we use protein powder in his smoothies

  22. Anna C says:

    Yes I have a picky eater-he is 20 months old and eats what he wants to eat! It’s always a struggle at mealtime.

  23. Brandie T. says:

    My daughter is an extremely picky eater. If she doesn’t like the food being served to her she will make herself sick so she doesn’t have to eat. This can be anything from her favorite foods (grilled cheese, fries, apples, bananas, peanut butter, etc…) to her dislikes. She will decide that she does not want to eat and good luck getting her too. We have tried everything. The one thing she will take without a doubt is her vitamins and milk.

  24. Gwen says:

    My kids aren’t usually picky eaters, but I’m finding that some days they just don’t eat as much as I’d like them to. It’s nice to have a vitamin that provides them with everything you need so you don’t have to worry about it.

  25. Angela says:

    Our baby wasn’t picky but in the last few weeks she has started throwing certain foods! Especially with potatoes!

  26. Jaclyn Reynolds says:

    My boys, 11 and 8, are pretty picky. They could live on raviolis and waffles. Veggies and protein is always a challenge with them!

  27. Jeannie says:

    My son use to be a super picky eater, but in the last little bit he’s gotten a lot better. He loves fruits and broccoli, but still a little unsure about meats.

  28. Kelly says:

    My almost 8 year old is getting better with age, but she’s still picky to a certain extent. If I would let her eat spaghetti with butter and parmesan cheese every single day for supper, I’m pretty sure she would !

  29. Dawn Kicks says:

    My oldest isn’t too picky, but I find things she used to love like brocolli, she will no longer touch. The baby so far is liking everything I have given her.

  30. Lori L. says:

    I’m lucky, my kids aren’t picky eaters really but I am not always serving the best quality meals, especially when we have Guides & Brownies to get to every Monday & Tuesday evening! Would LOVE to win an Iron Kids Gummi prize for them, I won’t feel so guilty about serving up chicken fingers sometimes! 😉

  31. Marisa Gartly says:

    I have 2 boys…both very picky eaters!!! Meal times are a challenge 🙂

  32. Dianne says:

    My grandchildren are very picky eaters and don’t like to eat most vegetables. Determined to get them to eat vegetables I made a zucchini loaf recently that they did like and raved about. They were quite shocked when I told them it is made with vegetables.

  33. Cheryl says:

    My 3 year old is EXTREMELY picky! One day he loves something and the next he hates it. So frustrating.

  34. Deanna Pottinger says:

    My preschooler is very picky eater he enjoys fruit juices but won’t eat fresh fruit. He won’t eat waffles but loves pancakes, also he won’t eat bread unless it’s toasted. It’s very hard to ensure he’s eating enough vitamins and minerals to maintain a balanced diet. We need help.

  35. Deanna Pottinger says:

    Also my preschooler wont take anything dairy

  36. Katherine says:

    My 2yo eats great some days but others all she wants is crackers! We love IronKids.

  37. Yes. So picky that she does not eat her lunch and brings it back home. One day she will eat it, the next she wont touch it.

  38. Pam says:

    My kids are sometimes picky but mostly when it comes to veggies. The love everything else.

  39. Lisa says:

    My 8 year old is super picky and we have a hard time finding him foods that he likes that are nutritious.

  40. Leanne b says:

    When she eats she’ll try most things but some days she doesn’t want to eat at all!

  41. Tara J says:

    Picky is an understatement. My daughter is being sent in for iron testing because she spits back anything texturized at you. Makes dinner time a bit of a stressful time for all of us since we are trying to get her to eat! 🙂 This would be a great prize for us.

  42. cathy canton says:

    One doesn’t like sauses of any kind and the other has a whole list of likes and dislikes
