Hope everyone had a great weekend, enjoyed the Super Bowl, and is now ready for a wonderful week ahead. As we get the week started, we came across an interesting article on Babble about picky eaters written last Thursday. Many of you probably have some great eaters at home, who will devour anything you put in front of them; many of you however, encounter the total opposite day in and day out. You know children, while some are willing to experiment with all kinds of foods, others stick with the trusted chicken nuggets and mac-n-cheese for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
Melissa d’Arabian, Cooking Channel hostess and winner of The Next Food Network Star, shares seven tips for addressing picky eaters on Babble’s interest page, Working Moms Lifestyle. See the seven tips below, and head over to the article for full details on each, here.
1. Let your kids pick the produce
2. Go to the farmer’s market, for entertainment
3. Serve at least two vegetables at dinner
4. Have the kids “present” dinner
5. Invite Your Kids to Plan the Menu
6. Make one meal for the whole family, and have the “no thank you” bite
7. Give them “taste-tester” notebooks
We thought these were great tips, and couldn’t wait to share them with you. Please share us your story with us when you try these with your kids.
