About Picky Eating
There are few things that make parents more stressed out and frustrated than their child’s picky eating habits (second only to sleep struggles perhaps!) Feeding our children is a fundamental way that we nurture them and keep them healthy and thriving. When our kids won’t eat we feel like failures as parents—even feel that they are rejecting our love. For toddlers, picky eating can be a natural phase as their taste buds mature and their budding need for independence emerges. As a result, mealtime can become a battle of wills, causing stress for all involved and negatively impacting a child’s relationship with food for life.

I have really relaxed during mealtimes and my expectations are much more realistic. We have all started enjoying meals again. My husband wasn't sure I was giving him enough food, but when he saw how much happier he was eating it, he was convinced.
