We’ve all known at least one kid like this (maybe even one in our own family): they subsist on a ‘beige’ food diet, and would rather sit at the table (arms crossed, lips pursed) for hours rather than take one taste of that new food you’re offering. Some kids are also largely geared towards a “kids’ food” diet: chicken nuggets, anyone?
But highly processed “kids’ food” may be setting them up for a lifetime of unhealthy eating. Read my interview in the National Post on food rehab, and getting your child from yuck to yum. Trust me, it can be done! Check out the success stories on my Getting to Yum blog: you’d be amazed at the transformation in formerly picky eaters!
