Help! I have a picky eater!
March 08, 2017
- Growing up my mother placed small cups of cereal around the house in hopes of getting this very picky three year old to eat. Trying new foods and eating what was served became a daily battle. Today, one of my three children has carried on this family tradition. She is the picky one- unhappy with the food offerings, dislikes new choices and turns her nose at anything that may have once lived on a farm. I have mostly avaoided the food battles of my youth with her, opting instead to find dishes that include options she may enjoy. It has not been easy (And no one would consider her a foodie!) but I have seen improvement over the years. As a parent how do you deal with a fussy eater?
