Jennifer Kolari Discusses Picky Eaters

kolari thumbnailThis week at Kolari’s Corner on InfoMommy, Jennifer Kolari answers a question from a reader whose two-year-old has a limited diet and does not like to try new foods. Jennifer explains that it’s important to stay neutral – don’t get too upset when your child doesn’t want to eat something and don’t have a parade for them when they do. It doesn’t take long for a child to learn that his or her eating behavior can really push your buttons. Jennifer suggests calmly continuing to offer different foods, modelling trying new foods yourself, and allowing your child to get used to new foods slowly. Read Jennifer’s full answer or check out her other advice at Kolari’s Corner.

The therapeutic methods suggested by Jennifer Kolari are based not on simple-minded behavioural solutions, but on building warm, nurturing relationships with our children, with insight and compassion not only for their little flaws, but also for our own larger ones."
