No More Picky Eaters!
Does your kiddo refuse just about everything you put in front of them? Has their “beige phase” lasted way too long, and you’re worried about the nutrients they are receiving? Will they ever grow out of it? Most importantly, you’re wondering: Is there anything I can do about it? Luckily, there is! At Innobaby, we understand that dealing with a picky eater is just part of parenting life, and we are here to help get you through it. Keep reading to learn more about how to make mealtime more enjoyable with your picky eater and some tools they need to make mealtime fun.
Are you sick of serving your toddler pasta, chicken nuggets, and fries? Wish they could eat more fruits and vegetables like you see other families doing? We understand it can be hard to have a picky eater, and we’re here to help. Two of the best pieces of advice you can find regarding a picky eater are to let them lead and give them fun tools to use.
Let Them Lead
- Be sure to offer your newly independent eater foods from all the food groups each day. You can make exploring new foods easier by serving them along with what they already like.
- Your Toddler needs three small meals and two to three snacks a day to help get all the nutrition they need. Toddlers get around 1/3 of their calories from snack time, so provide healthy choices and avoid high-calorie, low-nutrient foods like chips, cookies, and sugary drinks.
- Be realistic about how long your Toddler will sit still. Try to keep them engaged in conversation, but at this age, they may not last the whole meal.
- Keep mealtime light and relaxed. More high-pressure atmospheres can create picky eating.
- Give them a developmentally appropriate chair and utensils. Mealtime is just more fun when they can do it themselves.
Give Them Fun Tools
Ever notice how some foods just simply taste better with certain presentations? Ice cream tastes better in a cone, soda tastes better out of a glass bottle, and dinner tastes better with a pretty presentation. As such, give your kiddo some fun ways to enjoy their food that just might make it taste better in their minds.
