My child is the typical picky 9 year old eater. But she loves cakes and cookies. What's an easy fix?

In brief: Healthy choices

Keep cakes and cookies for a special treat for holidays and birthdays.
Give your child a variety of healthy choices, including healthy snacks. Let your child help prepare meals- some kids will eat foods they helped cook. Let your child go to the grocery with you and pick out a healthy treat.
