Experiment with other tastes. I know you won't want to hear this Dave, but I'd suggest getting rid of the whole MK salad, or at least change it a bit to add variety in flavours.
Hi Julian! How's everything going? Built any new models as of late? Colleen-
I have been steering away from the MKsalad. The salad I was talking about had all kinds of variety. Some beet greens, bokchoy, little bits of pear, celery tops, and even some rose petals. Ate couple of bites, then turned around. So I pinched some whole leaves in the doors...snarf...practically inhaled them.
Oh heaven forbid you should offer something new!! Gasp!

Igs are like kids when confronted wiht an unknown dish.. glance "I don't like it!"
"But how do you know you don't like it if you don't try it?" "I just know..."
"OK; when you get hungry enough, you'll eat it..."

Not too well here, me and my chick split, taking it bad even tho she was a evil selfish cow, guess you cant help who you fall in love with, at my age times passing me by
not many models but a PA of a world famous contempory artist contacted me as they wanted to loan of one my models for a show in Frisco, in the end they bought it. thing is it to be displayed upside down, not too good for a helicompter!!

ouch..sorry to hear about the split. It's always hard to loose a best friend. Hope you're feeling better soon.
Upside down helicoptor? Sounds like my simulator flying. Clunk! Way to go though, on the sale and all.

Try seperating the salad out into its individual components and putting it on a big enough dish that they're not touching. You might also consider very lightly steaming some of the harder vegetables and fruits; that would make them easier to eat and also more fragrant without sacrificing too many vitamins.
I've found that my little fellow has the table habits of a fussy two year old human child. Sometimes he'll eat great. Sometimes he'll sit there and pick out all the english peas and eat nothing else. Sometimes he'll refuse to eat unless everything is mixed together and pureed, others he won't eat it unless it's chopped fairly large (for him, anyway) and seperated into distinct piles.
When I notice him ignoring his other veges and just eating the greens, I start giving them to him seperately; ie, he gets his squashes and peas and lentils and tofu and peppers etc. in the morning, and if by time for his evening feeding, he hasn't eaten them, he gets a fresh bowl of those instead of a big bowl of greens. The longest it's ever taken him to get the hint is a day and a half, and after I saw him eat the veges, I immediately got him some parsley, which is his favorite 'treat' greenery.
Hmm...part of the problem might be that the whole leaves come closest to the food he'd eat in the wild, as far as appearance goes. You might just try chopping them up. He will eat if he's hungry, unless there's something other than fussiness wrong with him, and if the leaves are all chopped up, they'll loose a lot of the attraction that makes him go for them alone instead of a more balanced diet.
Good luck,
Velvet
