How to make my kids chowish? They started out that way...... what happened?

I have 21 month old twins who ate very well until recently. They used to eat veggies of all sorts, grains, fruits...while one was pickier than the other, we managed to get good food into them.

They loved quinoa for about a year... and now refuse to eat it. They ate broccolli and sweet potatoes 2 or 3 times a week, and now throw it on the floor. The kid who loved avocados... forget about it now. Tonight's quinoa with tomato sauce with both real and fake meatballs ended up on the floor. I've given up on steamed carrots.

I've tried hiding the veggies in with ravioli and tomato sauce. That's not working. Last night I tried spinach on pizza...and it didn't work either. Cheese isn't working.

Help! I know this is a common issue. What works? I'm really trying to raise my kids to eat well. Right now, all they'll eat is fruit, frozen peas, tuna, eggs, bread, cherrios, yogurt.....Quinoa probably isn't good for the dog either.
