What my {Picky} 4year old ate this week

If you are a parent who is fighting with a picky eater (like I was) I wanted to offer you some home. Sixth months after changing the way we make dinner, my picky eater has completely changed how she eats. It's not only making dinner pleasant but she is willing to try new things, so much so that she now takes a sandwich that is not peanut butter for lunch almost everyday!

Yes my daughter now eats Salami!

I thought it would be fun and maybe a little helpful to see what she has eaten this week.

White Chicken Chili with Hominy
What she ate:
- All the chicken from her bowl
- A dozen of the beans (traded for tortillas chips)
- A clementine for dessert

Whole Wheat Pasta with Chicken Sausage and Roasted Vegetables

What she ate:
- All the noodles
- A red onion!!!!!
- A red pepper!!!!!
- All the sausage

Pasta Arrabiata  
This was a special request from our son who wanted that "tube pasta with the bacon". 
What she ate:
- Pasta
- one tomato

Roasted Pork Sandwiches
 The popcorn was a surprise for the kids because we were trying to make dinner with what was in the house.
What she ate:
- the pork
She actually took apart the sandwich and peeled the pork out from the provolone cheese. (note my spinach is on my sandwich).

Italian Wedding Soup
 What she ate:
- the turkey meatballs
- bread

Cornflake Crusted baked chicken
What she ate:
- All the chicken then asked for more and ate it off the leg
- a bite of potato
- all her corn

Now I feel I also have to add a disclaimer now that I have all our meals lined up we don't normally have so many "bowl" meals in one week and we almost never have pasta twice in one week. We try to honor the kids request when they ask for good and healthy dishes so we when our son asked for arrabiata we wanted to honor it even though we already had the roasted vegetable pasta on the menu.

You can get all the recipes from our challenge on my pinterest board. 

What are you and your kids eating this week?
