Peas Pointers by Melanie Silverman

School is back in session and if you've got a picky eater at home check out our Peas Pointer by guest blogger Melanie Silverman of Feeding Philosophies.

If you have a picky eater, I bet the one food they will eat are those prehistoric animal shaped chicken nuggets.
While I tend to believe most foods can be part of a healthy diet, in my opinion, chicken nuggets are over served to kids. If you have a picky eater and you want them to eat a variety of foods, you must offer them. And, as hard as it may be, you cannot fall back on foods your picky eater will eat when they skip a meal or two.  Kids will not starve themselves.
So go ahead.  Roast broccoli.  Grill fish.  Bake sweet potatoes.  Be patient.  Picky eaters will try new foods.  It just takes time. "
