Keep picky eaters healthy.

Is your child a picky eater, like D.W.? You can help him or her to become less picky!

  • Keep offering a variety of nutritious food and let your child eat the amount he or she wants.
  • Serve very small portions. Your child can always ask for more.
  • Keep trying. It often takes several tries before a child likes a new food. Don't give up — offer it again in a day or two.
  • Try again as your child gets older. Many children gradually get less picky as they grow up, if you keep encouraging them to try.
