I need help ! extremely picky eater & basically wont eat anything !

so id like to just say that this is from a long time ago .. my sister is now 8 and she is doing better with the whole eating situation but still "picky" this was written honestly out of desperation . i was about 14 at the time (i am now 16 going on 17) and i was very worried about my sister's eating habits. her being my first & only sister plus seeing the distress her lack of willingness to eat and try new foods was causing my parents (who had other issues to deal with on top of that) and i felt the need to step in as a big sister and try to look for help and ideas. id like to thank most of you for taking this post seriously and giving me helpful tips .it is much appreciated :) there were people who were rude and disrespectful calling my sister names and such . but it was expected since this is the internet lol . anyways id thought id do a little update/explanation since some of you were asking :) Again everyone thank you so much for your help !

Thank you so much for that (: i think just her starting school full time will open her up alot more when it comes to food , Shes going to be there for a while shes going to get hungry and shes not going to get a choice or any special treatment so that will do her good (: Thanks for the help !

Yeah ive taken it off quite a few times now , it just starts pointless argument about either shes "spoiled" or a "brat" etc..

i dont think she has sensory issues , its just the normal "Ew this taste gross" or "eww This smells weird" but we have been to her pediatrician & she said is was "no big deal" she didnt bother really try and see if anything was wrong , literally it was a 10 min trip most being waiting in the waiting area .. but thanks for the help !

We started going to sams club & they give out samples at every corner & her eyes lit up when she saw all the food she tried almost everything ( spit out almost everything too .) but at least she tried & so now we are shopping there alot more ! Thanks for the help everyone !(:

Yeah , alot of posts were deleted because they were saying so many awful things , but anyways , i think what bothers her the most is probably cheesy textures ... melted , not melted , also the smell of certain foods plays a be role in why she wont eat some foods , Thanks for the help !(:

Thanks for the help !! I think the ice cube tray is a really good idea ! I completely understand what you mean about the Whole "Forcing her to eat things" I would absolutely hate that so we arent planning on doing that . Again thanks for the help !

Thank You (: When she was 3 she started making scenes in restaurants , homee .. & we had to stop her right then and there , i know i wasnt the best chilld when i was little & i felt it was unfair for my parents to have to go though that again so i tried to get her out of that habit asap ! haha , i think pureeing and sneaking veggies is a great idea ! Thanks so much for the help ! we really appreciate it (:

not so sure about that .. i wouldnt want her to start developing self image problems from this young of age .. or any age for that matter .. i think tough love will work for now ..

Shes only 6 years old ... i get what you mean though . shes going into 1st grade so that means her 1st year of all day school so i think her eating at school will probably force her into eating new foods whether she likes it or not so i think thats going to help alot with her eating issues .

Yes it was mentioned before but people started making rude comments and calling her a brat because of her age so I decided to take that off . She's just starting to go into 1st grade so I think that school lunches will kind of force her into earring new things , also I love the supermarket idea ! We will try that out next time , maybe she might like to help cook as well (: thanks cornets help !(:
