Baby & Toddler Talks: Feeding your Picky Eater

Are you concerned that your child is not getting enough nutrients from their diet? Does your child have a very limited amount of foods they are willing to eat or refusing to eat foods from an important food group such as protein or vegetables?

Picky eating is something that many children will go through. Most will grow out of this stage, while others may turn into choosy adults. There are so many reasons why a child might eat the way that they do. The key is knowing when there is a problem, when it is appropriate to take action and how. It is important to find the right approach for each individual child and their family.

  • Find out how to help your child become more open to trying new foods.
  • Learn how to avoid stress and conflict at the table.
  • Discuss simple ways to include more nutrients into your child’s diet.
