Parenting the Pickiest of Eaters

Meal time can be frustrating when your child only wants macaroni and cheese or refuses to eat anything green. No matter how you try to negotiate, their food preference is limited. Do you make a separate meal just for them or keep hoping they’ll warm up to something else? Picky eating can be a natural stage of development as your child’s tastes change, but there are ways you can encourage better eating habits:

 

If your child still refuses new foods or certain textures and it’s affecting their health and weight, it may be time to seek professional help. Not getting enough calories or variety of vitamins and minerals can affect their development. Feeding therapy can help your child overcome picky eating and become more independent in feeding themselves. Mealtimes don’t have to be a battle. Enjoy this time together eating a variety of foods and having family discussions.
