Tips for a Picky Eater

Much like sleep, eating is an area where, ultimately, your child pretty much has the last word. You can’t force them to eat something they don’t want to, but you can’t just let them eat whatever they want, either.

So what do you do when your child refuses to eat?

Do you withhold dessert, wait at the table until they finish, or try to persuade them with rewards and treats?

These are particularly tricky waters to navigate, because you’re helping to establish the relationship that your children are going to have with food through the rest of their lives.

Today, I’ve got a few strategies you can try that can get your child eating well, stop the stress and conflict over mealtimes, and help them develop a positive, healthy association with food.
