My step kids won't eat anything!
Sorry for the complaining, I know I'm posting a lot of issues!
I know kids will be picky to a certain age but my step kids take it to a new level. Meal times have become nightmarish and my husband and I can't come to an agreement on how to handle it. The only thing they want to eat is sweet and salty processed junk food. My husband and I rarely eat processed or fast food and if I put anything cooked from scratch on their plate they never hide their disgust. We've tried giving them a time limit, that doesn't work, I've tried cooking with them, that doesn't work. I have even bought them food they have at home, they eat two bites and then stare at it for two hours. It even happens when people take them out for food, which is particularly insulting because I consider that a gift to them. I don't understand why they do this, it's not like I'm making strange foods. I make chicken breasts, spaghetti, soup and vegetables when they are down. Can anyone tell me how we should deal with this? We are moving in with vegetarians at the end of the month and plan on eating more vegetables. I can't imagine the situation getting any better.
