My child wont eat most foods, please help!

It can be challenging when a child is a picky eater and refuses to eat most foods. Here are some tips that may help:

  1. Keep offering a variety of healthy foods: Continue to offer a variety of healthy foods, even if your child has refused them in the past. It can take multiple exposures to a new food before a child is willing to try it.

  2. Involve your child in meal planning and preparation: When your child is involved in meal planning and preparation, they may be more likely to try new foods. Let your child help with grocery shopping, meal prep, and cooking.

  3. Make mealtime fun: Create a positive and fun atmosphere at mealtime by playing music or games, telling stories, or having a picnic-style meal.

  4. Offer small portions: Offer small portions of new foods to avoid overwhelming your child.

  5. Don't force your child to eat: Forcing your child to eat a certain food can create a negative association with that food. Instead, encourage your child to try new foods and praise them for trying, even if they don't like it.

  6. Seek help from a professional: If your child's picky eating is causing significant health or behavioral concerns, consider seeking help from a healthcare professional or registered dietitian.

Remember, it's important to be patient and persistent when it comes to picky eaters. With time and patience, your child may become more willing to try new foods.
