4 Ways to Help Picky Eaters

  1. Start small. Start by offering a tiny portion size. For example, try a single pea, part of a noodle, or a crumble of cheese. You can then gradually increase the portion at each meal.
  2. Stick with it. Experts agree that it takes an average of 6 attempts for kids to accept new foods.
  3. Cut back on snacks and drinks. Research has shown that kids who resist new foods often eat snack foods or drink throughout the day, which limits their hunger for foods at meals.
  4. Invite an adventurous friend over. Seeing a friend try a new food can encourage your child to try that same food.
