8 Tips on Dealing with a Picky Eater ...


Some kids are eating machines, others you can barely get to eat anything. I know a boy who practically grew up eating nothing but bread, cheese and macaroni and cheese while his brother would eat about anything you threw his way! Each and every kid is different, but picky eaters are a mom's worst meal-time nightmare. While it's much less stressing to cater to your picky child's menu, try these 8 tips on dealing with a picky eater to try and introduce your child to new foods!

1. Be Fun!

Who says celery has to look like green stalks of "yuckiness?" Instead of serving it all plain, cut them in small sections and fill the center with peanut butter. You can also add a few raisins and tell them they're "ants on a log." Don't make mealtime boring. Act like you're a fish waiting to snag your meal by moving your fork in front of your face and then quickly eating it. When they see you having so much fun eating your dinner, they're sure to want to try as well. Pretty soon, you'll have a full fish and an empty plate!
