Mealtime can be the best of times, and it can be the worst of times. A picky eater can truly throw a wrench in any breakfast, lunch, or dinner plan, and don't even get us started on dining out. They just don't make enough chicken nuggets and mac and cheese in the WORLD. If you just threw your head back, and thought "Right?!" this blog is for YOU!
Here are some tips from the American Academy of Pediatrics on how to introduce new foods to your picky eaters, and get them on board...
1. Let your kiddo PICK the healthy NEW food
This way, your child gains a sense of independence and is able to feel like part of the adventure when exploring the variety of delicious healthy options.
2. Involve your kiddo in cooking
There is nothing better than teaching valuable, lifelong skills, like cooking. Involving them in the preparation of the new food they selected is a way to help them better appreciate the outcome.
