How to Raise Natural Eaters--and End Dinner-Table Fights Forever: The No-Nonsense Way to Teach Kids to Eat Right

Research has shown that it can take 10 tries to get kids to eat a new food, so don't get discouraged. The meals in this article are kids' menu favorites with a nutritious twist that should make the cut for both parents and kids and might be worth a try.

9 Favorite Meals Made Healthier to Please Moms and Kids

Hope that helps.

I find it so hard to stay on a good eating course. My 2 year old is so picky, doesn't like any vegetables except French fries (technically not a vegetable haha) and will often refuse food that she liked the day before. Since I am so tired after coming home from work we will often eat something that we all know she likes, things like chicken nuggets or hot dogs or spaghetti. I don't have a lot of time to make separate meals for us and I don't want to say "eat this stir fry or nothing" to my daughter either. HELP, this is a big factor in why my weight loss doesn't progress as fast as it should be! Any ideas are greatly appreciated!
