Finicky doesn’t begin to describe my kids when it comes to food. In the past, I begged, bribed, and pleaded with them to eat regular meals and try new foods until one day I gave up…with our pediatrician’s blessing.
As a mother herself, she knows that kids will be kids and that you can’t force-feed them! So tip #1 for dealing with picky eaters is going to be…
1. Don’t stress about it.
Our doctor’s first question for me after I
vented cried swore explained our predicament was, “Do you give them a daily multivitamin?” Thanks to L’il Critters™ the answer was yes! So tip #2 is…
2. Supplement with a quality multivitamin
L’il Critters™ is the #1 Kids Gummy Vitamin brand, and the only brand of vitamin my kids will take. That’s really saying something coming from kids like mine who will even eschew certain brands of fruit snacks (and chicken nuggets. What kid doesn’t like chicken nuggets? Mine. Sigh.)
3. Expose kids to a variety of foods
This includes allowing them to help with the cooking to plating up food you know they won’t eat just so they get used to the idea that food is not their foe.
4. Set a Good Example
If you tend to cook the same meals or at the same restaurants over and over, consider branching out so that your children can see you trying new things too. This show them that you’re not holding them to a standard you aren’t willing to meet yourself.
5. Make food fun
Bento boxes or muffin tin meals are always a hit with my kids, even if they don’t eat everything. It makes them excited to come to the table and on nights that I assemble them, it helps the kids be a lot less whiny and fidgety at the table.
Other ways to make food fun? Read books about how chocolate is made or bring them to a petting zoo/farm and talk about where eggs and milk come from.
