If your child is really picky

Some children get very comfortable eating just a few foods and are very resistant to trying new things. They actually develop a fear to foods they aren’t used to. The first step in making them more comfortable to the foods they fear is to make comparisons to the foods they like to the foods they don’t like. For example, if your child likes nuts but won’t try beans (such as chick peas), put them on the plate together and discuss how the chick peas are the same color as the nuts they are eating.
