What are some healthy cheap family meals for picky children?

Question by Elizabeth C: What are some healthy cheap family meals for picky children?
My husband needs to eat better and get weight down (too much buying fat-food for lunch at work–we’re changing that). Our kids are small and skinny and picky eaters. Husband and I would like to eat better and are tired of the only foods our kids seem to like–pasta (ravioli, spaghetti, fettucine, and macaroni and cheese), PBJ sandwiches, pizza, and fruit. Don’t get me wrong, we like these things but our kids make it hard to eat anything else. My two daughters will eat meat, my son won’t unless it is a chicken nugget or he’s starving to death. My daughters will eat some veggies but the only one I’ve gotten my son to eat is corn. I need ideas on meals that are kid-friendly, healthy, and cheap to make.

I thought I had ideas after reading your question. Then when I read the details I realized I don’ t think I can help you because those would have been my food suggestions.
