My toddler is a very fussy eater and refuses to eat any veggies, especially green leafy ones. How do I convince him to at least try them ?
Hey @Gds11 -I hear you! I stressed about this for a while but then did a lot of reading on the topic and most nutritionists and blogs I’ve read have said that introducing the foods and exposure is more important than if your child actually eats them. The more exposure the better and avoid all the pressure. If your child feels your stress, they’re going to associate that stress with those types of foods.
I have found eating those foods in front of my kids without making a big deal about it has sparked their interest on occasion.
Also, follow @kids.eat.in.color on IG-I’ve found that account so helpful. Also @feedinglittles
