|As a baby, my son not only ate peas, but he wore them too.|
My daughter is two an sometimes a bit stubborn (btw- I have no idea where she gets that from). I give her a plate or bowl an she usually eats most of what's in it. On any random day though she'll decide she doesn't want chicken or carrots or steak. So, let her eat until she's done. And she does. She never complains that shes hungry afterwards so I assume she's eaten enough. (Yes, I know. I'm very scientific).
There are very few things my boy doesn't like and he's, at least, consistent about it. We make him try everything and if he doesn't like it, he tries it again next time. His tastes vary between regular kid food (nuggets and French fries) and more grown up flavors (basil leaves- right off the plant, red onions, and hot sauce).
So, now that you have some background and alot of pictures of my kids eating random things... My son does not like tacos or burritos. But, last night I called Toni for a dinner suggestion and she gave me a great idea for some soft tacos with chicken and black beans. I thought if I kept it as a rice bowl for my boy, we'd be okay. He helped me measure and clean the veggies as I took low quality pictures of the ingredients.

Then we sat down to a beautiful meal.
