What goes on in the mind of a picky eater? Why won't my son touch the fish? Why does my daughter tuck her food under the placemat? These are only some of the questions asked by moms with kids who are picky eaters. If you are one of them, you will agree that providing the right nutrition for kids can sometimes be a challenge.
To help you understand your child more and provide him adequate nourishment, here are a few points to keep in mind:
• Your picky eater is just going through a phase.
People go through different phases in life. For kids, picky eating is one. They will have specific preferences for food that will be difficult for parents to alter. However, this will not last too long. Picky eaters will eventually become bored with their current preferences and will be inclined to try something new. When your child reaches this point, be ready to guide him in exploring the tastes of new, nutritious food.
• A picky eater can derive nutrients from likable foods.
Part of providing the right nourishment for kids is letting them choose the food they like during meal planning. But to make these nutritious, you can always sneak in veggies and fruits into meals, pair them with favorite ingredients like cheese dips or chocolate, or even use them to decorate your child's plate.
