    You didn’t mention trying a little reverse psychology. Works great on my kids. You have to start this when they are young. When they have a new food on their plate, tell them they have to save it for you, or that they don’t want to eat it because it is too yummy, or that your plate was too full so you are saving the rest of your dinner on their plate. Most of the time, my kids will eat the new thing first just so the parents don’t get it. It becomes a game that they like to play.

    Also, in our house, there is no dessert for someone that doesn’t eat two bites of every food. Also, parents CANNOT show pickiness in food choices. I have tried and learned to like a lot of vegetables in my adult life because I wanted my kids to experience them.
