parentsmagphotoCheck out this cool article in Parents Magazine, titled “Secrets of Pediatrician Parents.” My tip, featured under “parenting” is about how there is a better name for picky eaters. In my office and my classes I tell parents to describe their kids as “exploring eaters” or “learning eaters,” especially when talking in front of their kids. Being a picky eater should not be a label that defines children. in almost all cases, even the most extreme, kids can learn to eat more variety, and the language we use should reflect that ability to learn and explore food. To learn more, see my post on doctoryum.org titled “Doctor Yum’s Ban on Picky Eaters.”
