Health Tip: Dealing With a Picky Eater

Health Tip: Dealing With a Picky Eater

11/07/11

(HealthDay News) -- It may be difficult to ensure that a finicky toddler is getting all necessary nutrients. Experts say parents should be persistent in offering a variety of healthy foods.

The American Academy of Pediatrics offers these suggestions for parents of picky eaters:

  • Add nonfat dry milk to soup, or sneak grated veggies into homemade muffins, breads or lasagna.
  • Serve your child's favorite foods along with things that have been refused before.
  • Let your child help prepare meals.
  • Make sure food is visually appealing with unique shapes.
  • Eat a variety of healthy foods yourself to set a good example for your child.
  • Schedule regular family meals together.
