Healthy Food and Picky Little Eaters.
Do you have little picky eaters at home? Well, that can be a real challenge. But for starters, start early. Involve children in the kitchen when they are young – let them participate by giving them jobs, like setting the table or folding the napkins. Let them help make choices – which fruit for dessert? I have found that many children really love salad – so why not let them be in charge of the “salad station” – they can help choose the ingredients at the store, (include different greens, vegetables, apples or pears, dried fruit or nuts.) Zyliss makes a plastic lettuce knife that you can purchase at Amazon.com – it’s strong enough to cut lettuce but safe enough for a child to use. It could be fun?
Try the Sneaky Chef cookbook series by Missy Chase Lapine for ideas. She has a book on disguising food for adult picky eaters too!
