Picky Eating and Kids

Having a child that is a picky eater can be tough, especially around the holidays. In this video, Parenting Expert & Author Ann Pleshette Murphy gives her tips on how to keep meals peaceful, even when your child isn’t eating everything on their plate. One piece of advice is to talk with your child beforehand to set expectations. Let them know that they should try everything at the table and if they truly do not like it, they should use their manners and say so politely. If dinner is at your house, have your child help prepare the meal as research has shown kids tend to enjoy food more if they are a part of the process.
