"Kids, it's dinner time!" As you call over to the kids, you sit and wonder "Are they going to eat what I cooked tonight?" Or maybe you don't wonder at all. Maybe you know they won't because it's not macaroni and cheese. Or if you're like me, 2 of the 3 will like it and the 3rd will complain for sure. There are only a handful of meals I can make that everyone likes. And every once in a while, even that meal gets shot down by someone.

Think about being a child sensitive to foods. Fruit can be VERY overwhelming. Each bite may taste a little different. You have to be able to manage the juice inside of it along with the skin on the outside of it.
Because of the prevalence of picky eating, I have created a free, parent training to look at tips and tricks for working with the picky eater. These tips and tricks are standard tips that can be used with the "typical" picky eater and with a child who has true feeding difficulties or a feeding disorder.
As I have said many times, eating does not start with the first bite. Eating starts with knowing you can tolerate the texture of food on your finger tips, then the palm of your hand, then the back of your hand, and all the way up to your mouth. Many of us take this tolerance for granted.
