Jack's Daily Menu

As I've mentioned before, Jack's picky, so incorporating chicken, red meat and fish - is a challenge as well as vegetables!  He is a lover of the potato - but I'm hoping some green veggies will grow on him soon.  Jack told me that, "broccoli has gluten in it."  And I said, "Jack, I wouldn't give you something that has gluten in it."  "Broccoli makes you big and strong."  He doesn't buy it.  

So here we go.  Below is a typical menu for Jack.


Pancakes (Pamela's Products) or PB and toast (Jiffy's PB and Udi's White Bread)
Fruit (Pear, Strawberries, etc)

He does like eggs as well, when I cook them!


PB and Jelly (Welch's Squeezable and Udi's)


McDonald's French Fries
Chick-Fil-A French Fries


Pizza (Udi's bread with Kraft Mozzarella cheese and Ragu Pizza Quick)


Ore-Ida Tater Tots or Fries


PB and Pretzels (Glutino Pretzel Sticks)

All accompanied w/ fruit and cheese and sometimes yogurt
After lunch, he usually has M&M's for a treat

Afternoon Snack:

Any of the following:

Yogurt Pretzels (Glutino)
Cheese and Apples
Popcorn (Cousin Willie's)
Fruit Snacks (Kroger Brand)


Any of the lunch menu items


Baked Potato



Yep, that's it! Jack definitely needs to open his eyes to trying new foods.  Any suggestions?  How do you get your picky eater to try new foods?

  1. I didn't know about Chick-fil-a fries! Nolan has just started eating fries. I just got him to eat a peanut butter sandwich last week. He is so aware of what foods might have gluten in them it is hard to get him to branch out. Thanks for posting his "menu" I like being able to see what other moms are doing with food selections. Nolan eats a lot of Hormel or Dietz and Watson Deli Ham rolled and fastened with a toothpick sword. =)
