Dinner Table Challenges with Toddlers

Does anyone else have dinner-time tantrums?  Are your toddlers or teenagers picky eaters?  How about your hubby?  How do you get your family to get their 5-13(!!!) servings of fruits/veggies a day? I would love to hear about what dinnertime at your household looks like.
Toddler Dinnertime challenge
Typically around here, I get dinner thrown together later than I should, and more often than not without a vegetable. Then we sit down to eat together and I spend the majority of dinnertime mashing baby food, cutting food for my toddler and fetching things: more water, a napkin, seconds, etc.. It is a success if the kids have consumed something that is not white (are all kids bread-aholics or just mine?) and if the floor is not a complete disaster. Those are the moments I wish I still had our old dog! What is your dinnertime like? Do you have any dinnertime challenges? Next month, I hope to tell you about one of the genius tips I discovered to help balance out the kids diets.
