How can I get my preschooler to eat sauce?

My little one won't try any food with a sauce. For example she will eat plain pasta but not with a tomato based or cream sauce. She won't use any dipping sauces, try gravy or creamy rice. Anything with a runny texture. Do you have any suggestions?

    Nicely done! "Try it you might like it" and if they don't let it go.

    The reverse psychology and offering a treat/reward are also other tricks parents have used to get kids to eat certain foods too. Some things we just develop a taste for later.
