Some picky eaters may refuse to eat certain foods not just because of the taste, but because of the texture. They may only be able to tolerate the texture of a particular brand and flavor of a food. You may not notice the difference, but people with tactile sensitivity do.
Kids in particular may get upset if different foods are combined. Try using divided plates to keep foods separate. Or serve casserole ingredients individually. For instance, if you’re making shepherd’s pie, set aside some of the meat, mashed potatoes, and vegetables before you assemble the pie.
