The Pickiest Eater on the Planet

Allow me to introduce Gwen, The Pickiest Eater on the Planet.

Ok, I might be exaggerating, but only a little bit.  Her pickiness really is off the charts. For example, last night, she turned up her nose at pizza.


She acted like we were force feeding her brussel sprouts. “No pizza for dinner! NO PIZZA FOR DINNER!”

Even though she is SUPER picky, she does eat oatmeal for breakfast nearly every morning.

How do we get her to eat oatmeal, you ask?


Yep, sprinkles. One morning in a desperate attempt to get her to eat anything in our kitchen, Dave disguised her bowl of boring ol’ oatmeal with a dash of decorative sugar.

While I recognize the fact that we are making her healthy breakfast not so healthy, I’d like you to know that we barely put any on at all. I’d say there’s maybe 1/4 of a teaspoon.

If that.

What can I say? Desperate times call for desperate measures.

    I’m thinking Chase could give her a run for her money. He eats bad food. It’s amazing what I go through to get him to eat a pb&j and THAT is not even healthy food. It’s so frustrating. I’ve given up making dinner :)

  2. Carina

    Sprinkles?! That is BRILLIANT!

  3. Amanda

    I’m stealing this idea. I agree.. it’s BRILLIANT!

  4. Liz

    She is picky and doesn’t eat much but she is growing faster than Tori and Tori eats anything and everything. Maybe if I give Tori some sprinkles she’ll grow a few inches before our trip.

  5. Denice

    she can be best friends with Karly, who doesn’t eat anything. seriously – nothing. ok, she eats yogurt and pineapple. maybe peaches on a good day. i’m going to try the sprinkles thing. i love a good bribe and if it takes sprinkles……
