Avoid Picky Eating Habits

Avoid Picky Eating Habits

Update: 2023-03-152


Pushing your child to eat more or specific foods may actually promote picky eating problems.

Dealing with fussy eating habits is one of the more challenging aspects of raising a toddler. It can be frustrating or sometimes stressful when your toddler refuses to eat the nourishing meal that you have lovingly spent time preparing. 

Today, I dive into ways to avoid picky eating habits. I suggest a better approach to mealtimes, offer strategies to help your toddler expand their diet, and share a new and more enlightened way of helping your little one develop a healthy relationship with food. 

Stay tuned to learn how to avoid unnecessary mealtime pressure!
