5yo refuses to try new foods


Read your archives of picky eaters. Our 5 yr old refuses to try ANYTHING new. Husband and I were both brought up to try new foods and if you didn't like it - ok, but at least you tried it. Tonight we went to Chinese restaurant. She told us she wanted to try something different. Ok. Go thru the menu, make a choice and when it arrives she recoils back in her chair, and refuses to eat, whining the entire meal. She won't try it. With out making an issue- we tell her to try it b/c there's nothing to give her when we get home-- and no dessert.
My husband and I are not picky and we don not cater to her. Any suggestions? Will she grow out of this?
