Let me paint a pathetic little picture for you.
(I’m guessing some of you will be able to relate…)
It’s a sunny spring day in Vancouver, Canada, where I was living at the time. My son and I are at the toddler park. He’s about 2 ½ years old.
The park is full of moms wearing brand-new Yoga outfits and drinking lattes while their perfect little sons and daughters laugh and play without a care in the world.
Suddenly, one of the children yells over to where the moms are sitting, “Mommy, I want a snack!”
Thirty seconds later, all the kids are at their moms’ knees asking for something to eat.
Next thing you know, the moms all start pulling homemade wheatgrass muffins (or whatever) out of their Coach baby bags to the delight of their children.
And then there was me.
Want to know what MY snack offering was?
Here’s what I pulled out of my bag — in front of all the “super-moms” — to feed my son for a snack:
White bread (with crusts cut off) for dipping in “GoGurt”, (which is like yogurt with twice the sugar.)
Of course, nobody said anything. But you know when you can just FEEL other moms judging you?
It was one of *those* moments.
And the worst part? I fully deserved their judgement. I mean, as parents, we’re responsible for what goes into our children’s bodies. And the truth is that I had found myself in a place where I was feeding my child food that I knew was bad for him… just because I had convinced myself that he wouldn’t eat anything else!
It was probably a few weeks later that I decided my son’s diet (which was 80% milk, juice, crackers, and bread), simply HAD to change.
I hired a nutritionist and dietitian who specialized in working with children and together we came up with a plan to get him eating better.
My husband and I were very skeptical at first, because the things she suggested seemed a little TOO easy, but we decided to give it a try.
3. After about a month, he was like a completely different child. He was no longer begging for sweets, he was polite at the table, and we had found several new “go-to” foods that he would eat every time — including chicken and broccoli!
Anyway, I ended up working with that nutritionist and putting together a complete “how-to” guide for parents of picky eaters that shows you the exact steps to follow to get even the pickiest eater trying new foods and behaving well at the table.
It’s called “The Food Sense Program” and — for the next two days ONLY — you can get it at a big discount using this link:
If you’re struggling to get your child to eat a healthy diet, I encourage you to give it a try. (There’s a 12-month money-back guarantee, so if it doesn’t work, it won’t even have cost you anything!)
