Maybe snack foods look more kid-friendly? My mom would cut sandwiches with mini cookie cutters and put toothpicks in cheese. Sometimes she would get the lazy Susan out and make a "Smorgasbord" for dinner with baby corn, olives, vienna sausage and several little cups of dips... as long as it looked like party food, we'd eat anything. :)
Maybe so. I have one child who will, more or less, only eat ground or deli meat. Protein is always the hardest part, and with the blood sugar issues in our family, always the highest priority.
My oldest daughter does not like meat at all, so I know what you're talking about with protein. I let her eat as much cheese and yogurt as possible, is that an option for you? She has started to experiment a little with beans and so far she likes pintos and black beans as long as they aren't flavored (ie. cooked with ham).
We can do some dairy, but only in small amounts. She's actually doing a food allergy therapy with our N.D. right now, and I'm hopeful that after a few weeks of that, the dairy will be easier for her, and so will everything else!
