How to Cure a Picky Eater

Most parents deal with picky eaters when their children are young. Here’s how to encourage them to eat a healthy diet, from the Times News website:

Be a role model. When you eat meals together, make a point of trying new and different foods yourself. This can teach kids that variety is enjoyable.

Be persistent. When they reject something new, keep offering it to them. Give them time to get used to the idea of trying something different. When they get used to seeing it, they’ll eventually try it and may decide they like it.

Involve your children. Include your kids in planning and preparing meals. If they’re actively engaged in the process, they’ll be more likely to pick foods they’ll eat and try foods they haven’t.
