Meal Planning for Picky Eaters

Picky Eaters

Every family has that one “picky eater”.  Not only do I have one but I was also a picky eater as a kid, so I can relate on both levels.  I found that the visual aspect was the primary component in determining what my kid will eat.  “I don’t like leaf-ess (the plural to leaf apparently) in my rice” my picky eater told me.  So, omitting things like parsley and keeping ingredients basic is the key to getting her to try new things.  Oh, and throwing in a little cheese never hurt either.
