👩🍳My child is a picky eater what to do?
Having a picky eater can be a challenging experience for any parent. The good news is that there are several strategies you can use to encourage your child to explore and try new foods:
- Try to involve your "picky eater" in the meal planning and preparation process. This will make them feel invested in the meal and more likely to try it.
- Get your child/children involved in helping ou prepare the meal. Have them measure out ingredients, peel carrots, etc.
- Avoid pressuring your child to try a new food. Instead, keep the conversation light and enjoyable and model healthy eating habits by enjoying your own balanced meal.
- Offer new foods alongside familiar favorites and try presenting them in different ways, such as raw, cooked, sliced, or blended.
- Encourage your child to take small bites and praise them for trying something new, even if they don't love it.
Once you decide on the main course, pick a side dish to serve with the recipes listed below. Side dishes should include potatoes or rice along with one or two veggies. A tossed salad with homemade ranch salad dressing is always nice too.
