I have a 3 year old, who is a picky eater. We offer her a large array of foods, but she is in one of those "eating phases", and I'm tired of throwing away uneaten produce (and wasting money!).
As far as produce, she will only eat:
peas, sweet potatoes, corn, apples, bananas, grapes, broccoli (soup) and blueberries (hidden in "healthier" pancakes).
My husband and I will eat these fruits & veggies, along with spinach salad.
If this is all the fruits & veggies that we eat in the next year, are we missing out on some important nutrients? I don't like to make several different meals, as I know my daughter is just in a food phase. She eats dairy, meat and starches well, and I know I'm not the first (or last) mom to say, "my child won't eat her veggies!".
I really want to know if there are a few other fruits or veggies that I should be focusing on adding, to "round out" the balance of nutrients (vitamins, minerals, fiber, etc)?
