Feeding a Picky Eater

Recommended Posts

 Hi, All


I know this is a random thread, but I thought I might as well ask.  My fiance is an extremely picky eater.  He likes the normal kids meal foods - chicken tenders, burgers, mac n cheese, and cesar salad, but it is so hard to get him to eat something else.  He wont eat most vegetables, only apples for fruits, etc.  And, instead, he will eat lots of chips, drink soda, and eats junk food (candy and cookies).  I would really like to diversify our menu options with healthy, easy meals that a picky eater would like.  Does anyone have any suggestions for recipes?  Any help would be greatly appreciated!!


Thanks and happy planning/weddings/marriages!




p.s. I can't eat seafood.  :(  That is the one thing he is more open to eating...

Roast root veggies are always a big success with my hungry monster- things like parsnips come out tasting candied if you do them in a nice balsamic glaze.

Oh! And omelettes are also a lovely way of sneaking in healthy things like peppers.


Wraps are a good idea, too or healthy burgers- you can trick him into thinking he's having junk: do grilled chicken breasts and salad, with a good low cal sauce. Instead of chips, try sweet potato fries or an asian slaw.


Good luck

My fiancé is extremely picky too! It's hard to get him eat different things.

I get him to eat his greens and veggies in a smoothie. That's the only way he'll eat things like kale and spinach.

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
