Food, food ,food

My 12 year old has always been a fussy eater.  She breastfed until 2 1/2 years, her diet mainly consisted of milk and petit filous.  Once she stopped breastfeeding she seemed to discover food, trying anything we gave her but nibbling like a mouse.  It didn't take long for the mouse to realise she didn't like much.  She eats Nutella on toast for breakfast, school lunches consist of pasta and sauce, dinner is really difficult at the moment as she doesn't like to eat the same thing twice so doesn't want pasta again.  She goes through stages of loving a particular food, not so long ago chicken nuggets - a guaranteed winner for all three children!  Now she is sick of the sight of them!
My son isn't too fussy, he doesn't eat soups or stews (meals where the food is mixed up).  Other that that he will eat most things, the difficulty is getting him to stay at his plate long enough to actually eat!
