Sometimes, moms tend to give in to what her picky eater child wants to eat just so she could have a decent meal for the day. But did you know that giving in too much to your picky eater's wants would just make her crave for it more? It will also just give her the idea that every time she asks for her favorite, you would just easily give it to her.
Not only would that cost money, especially if her favorite food is found in a special and expensive restaurant, but this may also hinder your child in having the right nutrients. So in order to ensure that your picky eater is still getting the daily nutrients she needs, why not prepare dishes you know she can help you out with? This way, your picky eater will have a sense of responsibility in the kitchen and at the same time, encourage her to eat what she has prepared herself. Below are some of the easy meals that can complete your picky eater's menu for the day!
Breakfast: Mini Pancake Cinnamon Rolls
After you help her out in cooking and cutting the pancakes into strips, let your picky eater have fun in rolling, drizzling, and spreading healthy sauces and syrups like honey, maple, or even fruit jams into the pancake strips!
Lunch: Sushi Roll-Ups
Messy but fun, this dish will surely entice your picky eater as she can be the one to shape his own rice rolls. You can even let her decide on the fillings she would put it in. Lactum 3+/6+ suggests ground pork, mangoes, or crab meat.
Dinner: The Pizza Bar
Who doesn't love pizza? Surely, even your picky eater has a thing for pizza. The thing with restaurant pizzas though, we are never sure of how and what they actually put in there. To make sure that what you are serving your child is nutritious yet delicious, try having a pizza bar during dinner and have your picky eater choose her own favorite topping.
You see moms, feeding you picky eater can be an easy task. Especially if you have a partner like Lactum 3+/6+!
