Feeding a Picky Eater

by Renee Ross | March 6, 2012 at 3:24 pm | comments

My son is a picky eater: he only has a few things he’ll eat and they’re on constant rotation. On any given day he’ll change his mind about what he likes, and it’s nearly impossible to predict! For a long time I was worried about his eating habits, and meal times were stressful for me. My concern was alleviated when his pediatrician told me children eat when they’re hungry and
