I have never had a picky child.

OK, I only have two kids; so I guess I don't have much to go off of here.  But RR was always a good eater.  Sure he went through the phase of not eating "white" food - potatoes, rice, white bread, etc.  And there are certain things at certain meals he will not eating, but certainly not what I would call a picky eater.

TT on the other hand is working on becoming a picky eater.  As of lately he has decided he doesn't eat meat anymore.  Considering that meatballs and sausage were his favorite foods 3 months ago this is a big change.  It has been about 2 weeks since TT has eaten meat - aside from the stray chicken McNugget (and no he will not eat chicken nuggets at the house).  He has turned his nose up at every form of meat possible in the last 2 weeks - meats he used to LOVE, meats most 2 years old LOVE.

I tried to get him to eat sausage twice in the last 2 weeks - once at home and once when we went to breakfast yesterday.  No dice.  He used to eat 5 or 6 sausages at a time.  I couldn't even disguise it in a pancake with maple slurp.

He will not eat steak.  Even with A1.  He'll dip his veggies in the A1, but will not touch the steak.

No fish.

No chicken of any sort.

He will not even eat hot dogs.

He picks pepperoni and hamburger off pizza and hands it to you saying "kakaa".

Tomorrow will be the ultimate test - spaghetti meatballs for dinner.

And if that's a no go I think I will have the first two year old ever with a self imposed vegetarian diet.

Thankfully he still eats other foods and lives for "toast" (wheat bread toasted and slathered with peanut butter).  And he did eat 3 hard-boiled eggs (along with 2 apples, a pastry and a banana) for breakfast so there is no lack of protein in his diet... or food for that matter.
