No surprise to this mom of a very picky eater. Food is a daily struggle in our house. This morning, my daughter did not want her usual breakfast of toaster waffles. She insisted on chocolate kisses. We compromised (one kiss, one waffle) because I needed to get her to school on time, and with something in her tummy.
The New York Times story offered some helpful hints (a link is posted below) but no magic answers. The basic message: try and try again. A child just might try a new food after it’s been offered a dozen or so times. They also might want to eat something new if they helped prepare it.
I’ll try those methods (again) but so far, they haven’t been too successful with my strong-willed child. Do you have any suggestions, short of melting chocolate on broccoli?
