Make mealtimes fun
When you've got a picky eater, it can be downright difficult to ensure they're getting enough nutrients. When my own children go through a picky-eating phase, here are a few tricks that have helped me through.
- Change up the presentation — cut carrots into rounds instead of sticks, shred the cheese instead of slicing it.
- Remember that just because your child doesn’t want to eat something today doesn’t mean that will be the case tomorrow. Repeated introduction of foods is key with kids.
- Try to keep the stress (at least outwardly!) to a minimum; mealtime will not be made easier with more pressure on kids or parents.
Luckily, there are also some clever tools available that can help boost your child’s interest in food.
