Learn how food chaining will help your picky eater

Food chaining

Food chaining is a simple method to help kids try new foods.

If you have a picky eater or two in your house, you know how stressful introducing new foods can be. They haven’t even seen, smelt or felt it and they’ve already decided that it’s “disgusting”.

There is a large component of picky eating that’s in their head. Especially if you have anxious children.

But knowing that doesn’t necessarily make it easier. You can’t “argue” with them that they would just like it if they actually “gave it a go”.

Telling them to put aside all their negative thoughts and move on, isn’t going to work.

Most adults have problems doing that so it’s hardly reasonable to expect kids to.

In fact, the more you “argue” and “coerce” the more they dig their heals and “know they really hate it!”

So what can you do?Continue Reading →

“Don’t leave the house without a small bento box… here’s why!” is a collaboration between Baby Bento and Little Peeps Eats.

Who ever knew there were so many uses for a small bento box?

Do you have a picky eater?  I understand what you are going through, I truly do.  To spend hours in the kitchen cooking a nutritious family meal, only for your child to say ‘yuck’ and completely disregard what you’ve served them.

How many times have you heard your picky eater say, “I don’t like that” based only on how it looks on the plate, without even tasting it?  If I had a dollar for every time I’d heard it, I would be sailing away on my private yacht as I type this article!

It’s a topic that is close to my heart (which is why I started my group), as I understand how frustrating this can be as a parent.  We want our child to be enjoying nutritious food, why must they make it so hard for us?Continue Reading →
