The BEST Strategy to Help Your Picky Eater — Your Kids Table
I love Alisha Grogan at Your Kids Table; she has down-to-earth, practical advice. She offers short, free courses for parents of picky eaters (you know who you are) that are really, really great.
Here's one of her secrets to getting your child on track with eating a variety of foods:
"Although I feel this is the first stepto managing picky eating, it is also the most simple. This mysterious and often unknown strategy is: NOT PRESSURING YOUR KID TO EAT.
"Let that sink in a minute. I am saying as a pediatric occupational therapist that has helped hundreds of kids with eating difficulties, and a mom to three young children (one of whom has had his own feeding issues) that the single BEST thing you can do to help your picky eater start eating more foods is to STOP pressuring them to eat."
