We’ve all heard the stories of (or had personal experience with) children who will only eat a very small variety of food. Perhaps the child will only eat one color of food or one or two different foods at any given time. Perhaps the child goes from “loving” a food to “hating it” and back again on a weekly basis. These kinds of attitudes are challenging for parents who want to prepare healthy, well-rounded food for their children and I believe that picky eating in children can be limited if parents start early enough. Our boys are generally good eaters and I think that is due, in part, to our introducing a wide variety of food to them early on in their lives.
