I've been really looking into the menus for kids and there are lots of other options besides burgers and pizza. Columbia House, BOG, Pinocchio's, I'm sure there's more I'm forgetting right now.
That being said, it looks like we'll be having cupcakes at BOG for a snack before 2. I just want to see the inside. Turkey can be very yummy, or "eww is that really turkey lunchmeat?" And yes I've got one very picky eater who will not eat any food w/ a "weird texture" or that "pops" in his mouth when he bites. So yeah, he'll be eating a lot of chicken nuggets. (yes, I'm a bad parent, get over it)
Anyway the point is... if you want to see BOG and your kids won't eat something from the menu, then just have desert and call it a day

I think we are once again talking about kids who won't eat anything that doesn't look like what they're used to, including different shapes of noodles and pizza with a thinner crust.

Disney so far has been adamant that they won't serve chicken nuggets, burgers and pizza at BOG. Enough complaints and they might end up having to. there was a rumor that they were about to add macaroni and cheese to the kids' menus but I'm guessing it won't be the powdered cheese stuff, so it will still get complaints from parents whose kids will only eat Kraft.

Can we look all around or just in one room?

If you go in at lunch, order something and eat it there, you can look into all three dining rooms. At dinner, the Rose Room is closed to guests but you can see the ballroom and the West Wing.

You cannot enter the dining rooms at lunch, however, without passing through the ordering room. They don't allow guests in just to look around.

My DD(6) is extremely picky. I'm talking if it is Mac and Cheese and it isn't Kraft, she isn't eating it. If it is pasta with marinara sauce, she can be very picky about the pasta itself and the marinara sauce had better be good. At BOG lunch she had the whole grain pasta with marinara. She loved it! She ate almost all of it. We had another 6 year old with us and a 4 year old. The other 6 year old had the turkey sandwich, and the 4 year old had the pasta. They both liked their meals too. We didn't have any issues with the kids. We were happy with the choices and the food.

I don't know about Be Our Guest but at other Disney Resturants my "pickey" son was able to order an adult meal in a child size for one child size credit on the dining plan. This helped alot because while he may be a "pickey" eater, I am one of those moms who says, "No you can not have pizza, chicken nuggets, grilled cheese.... again!"

I bet you could even have the marinara sauce left off and you'd be left with plain grilled chicken, which is a very kid-friendly option.

I don't have kids yet, but when I do, I will happily take them to BOG. I can't imagine feeding them chicken nuggets and pizza for an entire week. Ew.
My dd who is 14 loves this dish, she always wants this when we go to WDW, so since I want to try BOG (which will be later this week I hope) I was thrilled to see that on the menu. Then she won't mind waiting in line for a while...

I was happy with the kid's menu at BOG! We got my 3yo the pasta and my 5 yo nephew got the meatloaf. How can you go wrong with pasta? Isn't that the most kid-friendly meal ever?

"Kid friendly" is subjective, and depends on the kid as to what is "kid friendly food" I am surprisingly lucky that I have 6 kids who aren't really picky, with the exception of DS4 who has a peanut allergy & DD9 who is not found of chicken nuggets. We often split adult CS meals with her because she doesn't like the choices on most kids meals. You can't please every one all the time.
