"Picky? Not Me, Mom!"
A Parents’ Guide to Children’s Nutrition
Your children are picky about what they eat—especially when it comes to raw fruit over juice form and vegetables. They turn up their noses at broccoli, and bury their peas under the mashed potatoes. While you cajole, beg, or demand they eat these foods—and explain how important it is to eat plenty of fresh produce—your arguments fall on deaf ears. The little tykes just won’t eat what’s good for them. So, what do you do? You can’t let them starve, can you?
