The term ‘picky eater’ can include a wide range of food issues with little ones. So in order to determine how to handle your child’s eating habits, its best to try and figure out what exactly is the issue.
Some kids are very sensitive to textures, so often just preparing a food a different way will get them to enjoy eating it. Some kids are very visual, so if a food does not look fun or appealing to them they just will not eat it. Then there are the kids who use food as a power control tool and not eating has nothing to do with the food at all and more about them wanting control over everything.
Whichever the issue, I have put together a guide based on age to hopefully help you address some of your child’s eating challenges and therefore make mealtimes less stressful for everyone.
