Pasta for the Picky eaters

Pasta so many varieties and and you have so many recipes available for it and my personal favorite is the cold pasta salad....will share with you all the varieties that i make and keep experimenting with different shapes and tastes.This one is kid's friendly and healthy to eat.If you are a Mom like me who has a real picky eater at home then you can empathise with me and actually know how many experiments we need to do and make them learn to eat and if they eat one day i feel like its a big achievement for me .What shud i do ? Shud i give some multivitamins?These questions are always there in my mind.
Just surfing and keep reading things to improve and  i read this on babble..  A toddler, which by definition means that in all likelihood, what he's doing this month will be history the next.Picky eating is actually a developmentally appropriate phase for toddlers. Interestingly, it generally has little to do with food, and lots to do with trying to control the universe. If you're two, there's not much you can be the boss of, but you can have a say in what does or doesn't go into your mouth. So you may not actually have a long-term picky eater on your hands, and your best bet may be to sit back and wait and see whether this habit fades or just keep trying .
My doc said don't go after her keep the food on the table and let her eat never worked though because much food will come on the floor but not go in their mouth.Her Granny's say keep trying different things or take her in the balcony and show her different things .Some of my friends say keep her busy in the TV and execute your mission..hehe..but sumthings works one day and yet another day is new and different and have to try some new techniques.Actually they have thousands of better things to do in the world than eating..So keep working on your Mission Impossible like me and try this if it works for you ..:)
