What to Feed my Finicky Five-year Old?

herby | Jul 15, 2011 04:15 PM

I will be spending two weeks in August with my five-year old grandboy and while I am looking forward to one-on-one time, I am dreading meal times. He does not like meals and food. Sure, he gets hungry but all he wants is a snack which could be cheese stick or maybe some apple or chips. Super finicky and unpredictable in what he would be remotely interested in putting into his mouth. One of my ideas to try is to involve Jack in planning, shopping and cooking. Not sure if he will eat the food though...

Do any of you have similar experience? Any solutions, suggestions out there?

Looking forward to hearing from you!
