Well, my son is 18 years old now. He wasn't too picky & would try everything. But occasionally we would have something that obviously most kids aren't going to like (grilled salmon or salad as the entree) I'd make him something else. In time he grew to love the salmon (he's been grilling since he was 12, I'm not kidding) & grills it wonderfully. Salad, he'll eat it but it's not his favorite thing.

There is always something made at dinner that everyone likes to. Whether they are in the 'mood' to eat it is up to them.
Yeah, we offer other things when our 2 1/2 year old flat out refuses, but if she continues to refuse anything we offer, she can just go hungry. Although she usually will end up eating something once she realizes after dinner is over and we refuse to give her the snacks she keeps asking for that she really isn't going to get anything else.
