11 Strategies for Turning Picky Eaters into Curious Eaters

If you’ve got a picky eater at home and have been wondering, “How do I get my child to eat better?”, we’ve got 11 great strategies for you!

In this podcast episode, I’m tackling a big emotional topic for a lot of parents — how to help your picky eaters become more curious, adventurous eaters.

Just about every kid goes through some phase (or multiple phases) of picky eating, and it can be a super frustrating and challenging time for parents. Using my own personal experience as a mom combined with everything I’ve read on this topic, we’ll discuss a wide variety of strategies parents can use to help support the transition from picky eating to curious eating.

After this 30 minute episode, you’ll have the tools to:

  1. Shift your mindset and redefine what success looks like during dinner
  2. Make dinnertime a no-pressure environment
  3. Create more fun around the dinner table
  4. Involve your kids in the kitchen by letting them help meal plan and cook with you

Plus so much more!
