Turning mealtime into fun time: tips for picky eaters

Turn mealtime into fun time with our expert tips for picky eaters. Learn how to introduce new foods gradually, engage your child's senses with colorful plates, and celebrate their small wins. Create a supportive environment that encourages healthy eating habits and helps your baby explore and enjoy a variety of foods.

Introducing solids to picky eaters can be a fun and positive experience with the right approach. Here are three essential tips from our nutrition expert to help your baby explore and enjoy new foods:

1. Keep introductions slow and steady

Start with tiny amounts of new foods paired with their old favorites. This gradual approach is less overwhelming and helps babies get used to different tastes and textures.

2. Engage their senses

Brighten up the plate with a variety of colors and shapes. Let your baby touch and play with their food. This hands-on experience makes new foods exciting and less intimidating, sparking their curiosity about what they eat.

3. Celebrate small wins

Applaud every little success. If your baby tastes a new vegetable, make it a big celebration. Positive reinforcement encourages them to keep exploring and trying new things at the table.

 

By incorporating these tips into mealtime, you can create a fun and supportive environment that encourages your little one to embrace a variety of foods, setting the stage for healthy eating habits that last a lifetime.
