...for a 4 year old. DJ is really into trying new foods lately. This week he's had whole wheat pizza (made it himself), sweet and sour chicken (with the sauce), and now he's washing down his usual PB&J with a huge strawberry-banana smoothie. He eats yogurt everyday and if it's a weird, exotic, or expensive fruit that looks strange, he'll eat it. He loves chicken curry with jasmine rice and spicy Buffalo Wings, but turns his nose up at celery.
Do your kids eat things that surprise you? Can you get them to try new things?
Ryan will try pretty much anything we eat! Especially if one of use is about to bite into it. He loves Chicken Teriyaki, Shrimp (only a recent addition to prevent allergies), Fruit of just about any kind - kiwi, berries, etc. Frankly he's probably a much better eater than either Stitch or myself!
Kiwis are the one thing we can't get him to try - ever. He gets upset when he sees fruit with hair on it and he knows what the inside looks like. So even if I peel it before I show it to him, he knows it came from that hairy fruit. Gobbles up starfruit like an apple, though.
My older daughter, almost 5, will try any food. Some of her favorites are beef jerky, broccoli, chicken fried rice and baked salmon among other things. She has more variety than I do! On the other end of the spectrum is my 3 year old daughter who ONLY eats yogurt, chicken nuggets & fries, macaroni and cheese, Spaghetti-os, and crackers. It's very frustrating!!!

My 4 year old DD is very picky and won't try new things most of the time. Although she did try blueberry yogurt (she claims to hate blueberries) this weekend and loved it! Go figure! My 21 month old will try anything you give her and if she doesn't like it, she'll let you know. She loves enchiladas and many spicy foods that our other DD won't touch. She'll eat just about any fruit you give her too, mangoes are a favorite.

My three year old will eat anything I put in front of him. he eats all day. Then comes the 7 year old that turns his head up at everything. Weird how you can have two children, with totally different taste.
My kids love Dolmathes (know I spelled it wrong), Tabouli, Coconut Soup, and they get excited when I make Gyros at home.
Beef jerky is eaten like chips in our house, and they love dried blueberries, cranberries and strawberries.
When we go out, none of them get fries they always order Broccoli! I tell them to have the fries if they want, they just want the broc.
And, unlike their momma at their age, they love meatloaf (mine of course)
We have just always expected our kids to eat everything we do. Not volume, but item for item. That means that they had to be able to read before they ever ordered from a kids' menu. Until then, they just shared with us.
The only thing I know I can't get them to eat is bananas!
