The truth is, what started the picky eating may not be the factor that is keeping it going. The longer the issue has persisted, the harder it can be to figure out what caused it. And to make matters worse, the longer it has persisted, the more factors that may be keeping it going.
"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.
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.
