Dear Parents of Picky Eaters,
I am sorry for your troubles. I know how sick and tired you are of...
Your life doesn't have to be like this. Your picky eater has all the power and you need to take the power back.
The truth of the matter is kids become picky because parents, out of love and concern, make them that way. You must take control of the situation with appropriate scheduling, meal preparation and behavioral guidelines and have an appreciation and understanding that missing meals and snacks is not harmful.
Feeding your child should be a pleasurable and fun experience. When it's stressful and sad, then it's time to get help. There is help available to you this week...
Thinking of you,
Melanie R. Silverman MS, RD, IBCLC
