You can learn more about the cookbook in our author Q&A with Katie

    I would like them to try different kinds of soups

  • jlemoine  on  9/9/2015 at 4:16 PM

    Seafood/fish. The kids are convinced they hate it even though they refuse to try. Hubby won't admit he likes it but seems to scarf down with delight every time I make.

  • Sixinchheel  on  9/9/2015 at 8:32 PM

    Something that my picky eaters will be guaranteed to tuck into is pasta bake. Add cheese on anything and bake it, who wouldn't?

  • lauriesk  on  9/9/2015 at 8:57 PM

    I would like my picky eaters to enjoy more vegetarian entrees.

  • sarahcooks  on  9/9/2015 at 9:13 PM

    Food mixed together - stew, soup, casserole, curry, you name it. I just want them to eat something besides plain plain food because I hate plain food!

  • rchesser  on  9/9/2015 at 9:19 PM

    Fish, they won't touch it if they know I'm making it!

  • ravensfan  on  9/10/2015 at 8:06 AM

    I would like them to try vegetables prepared in any way.

  • adelina  on  9/10/2015 at 8:52 AM

    Vegetables or beans

  • Siegal  on  9/10/2015 at 8:59 AM

    I wish my kid would eat a veggie any veggie!

  • Normalina  on  9/10/2015 at 9:23 AM

    I wished they liked spinach and kale

  • bching  on  9/10/2015 at 9:43 AM

    Ham. I think it improves the flavor of many bland foods and my daughter won't eat it.

  • sarahawker  on  9/10/2015 at 9:59 AM

    I wish he would try ANY fresh vegetable without complaint. At this point I don't care which, I would fix it every day. But I do make a lot of cauliflower and that would be helpful....

  • Mimmi  on  9/11/2015 at 6:43 PM

    Sweet potatoes!

  •  on  9/11/2015 at 8:36 PM

    Homemade, healthy soup!

  • lindaeatsherbooks  on  9/13/2015 at 5:40 AM

    My picky eater needs to learn how to like mushrooms.

  • sgump  on  9/13/2015 at 11:28 AM

    I'm always flummoxed when I prepare a menu for a gathering, only to learn (usually at the last minute) that one of the diners has "gone off carbs" (thus rendering the pasta or the pizza or the bread or the rice or the potatoes or the souffle or the dessert or whatever something this now-picky eater won't eat). I understand medical conditions, of course, but not even *tasting* something that the host has prepared always seems a bit rude to me (when it's solely about preferences, not about dietary restrictions).

    I would love for my picky eaters to try more veggies. They only eat corn on the cob and green beans. And that is if I tell them they have to eat them.

  • AGENT99  on  9/19/2015 at 4:10 AM


  • reno2014  on  9/19/2015 at 3:04 PM

    I don't have kids, but a boyfriend. I really wish he would eat more vegetables and fruits than he does. Man can not live on hamburger and pizza alone!!!!!

  • nancyjnow  on  9/20/2015 at 12:57 PM

    I wish my picky eaters would eat casseroles. With cheese. Delicious, delicious cheese.

  • rivergait  on  9/20/2015 at 12:58 PM

    "Salad", which seems to include most greens...spinach, kale, bok choy, but especially anything leafy green and raw.

  • bdmltm  on  9/25/2015 at 11:39 PM

    I'd say casseroles, too.

  • tjnelson1hotmail  on  9/26/2015 at 4:00 PM


  • Gussiecat  on  9/27/2015 at 8:18 PM

    Anything in the vegetable family!

  • sallyc06  on  9/30/2015 at 12:57 AM

    Vegetables, my husband won't eat them.

  • Twistie  on  9/30/2015 at 1:29 AM

    I wish my picky husband would eat an animal other than: cows, pigs, chickens, and turkeys. I miss lamb and seafood so darn much! But really, I wish he would stop responding to any mention of a food he hasn't eaten before with a harrumph of 'I hate that.'

  • lhudson  on  9/30/2015 at 7:45 AM

    My 30 year old son still does not like mushrooms, wish he would get on board with the rest of the family.

  • Anne R.  on  9/30/2015 at 2:38 PM

    Brussels Sprouts!

  • lisachile  on  9/30/2015 at 10:44 PM


  •  on  10/2/2015 at 7:24 PM

    homemade soup!

  • zubs1990  on  10/3/2015 at 6:59 AM

    I'd like my picky eaters to eat more greens, soups and beans.

  • southerncooker  on  10/4/2015 at 12:40 AM

    I wish my picky husband would try more new foods.

  • auntietina  on  10/4/2015 at 11:37 PM

    My pickiest eater is my Dad: he's living with us again after having some medical issues. I would love for him to eat anything OTHER than meat and potatoes. (Although I will admit here that the mashed potatoes he loves so much are actually half pureed cauliflower. I checked with his doctor and it turns out his vehement claims that he can't eat it were pure fiction. Score one for the sneaky kid!)

  • bfg67  on  10/5/2015 at 3:47 AM

    more spicy stuff

  • ballen  on  10/7/2015 at 12:34 PM

    A wider variety of greens and vegetables -- beyond the old mainstream standards.
