Just when you thought life would be easier once your tot learns to eat solid foods, you realize that he has developed a very specific palate that goes beyond his usual mashed peas.
So how to handle your new picky eater? Here are some tips:
1. Introduce new foods with tried-and-true favorites
Foods with new tastes, textures, and smells require some getting used to, so try to serve them alongside some of his favorite dishes.
2. Play with colors and dips
Serve some brightly colored food and offer a few interesting dips along with it
3. Make him part of the process
Go grocery shopping with your child and make him your sous chef as you prep his meal. The more involved he is, the better he will be once eating time starts.
