Having picky eaters in your family can put a strain on meal prep and trying to adopt healthier eating habits. My daughter is extremely picky, but, thankfully for me, she is picky for the ideal reasons (most of the time), and prefers healthier foods, but for many, “healthy” food can often get a bad track record for having less taste which is not true. just because something is good for you doesn’t make it our enemy. here are a few ideas that can help you get rid of the battle with the picky eaters in your family. The 3 M’s:
Mix it Up – part of being a picky eater and turning away food is having a certain set of meals that you truly enjoy. A good, easy method to ease picky eaters into branching out is finding something a meal that they truly enjoy and mix in something new. A new healthy choice for a side paired with a favorite meal will give the eater less anxiety and anxiety of trying a new food and their taste buds will not be thrown off completely.
Make it fun – frequently times picky eaters are afraid away from a food without even tasting it because of its look, texture, color, or smell. By integrating buying for the food and making the meal a fun experience, a few of those fears can be erased. My daughter enjoys buying trips, and we utilize the buying list as reading and spelling method as well. Being hands on with a food the picky eater has hesitation about can turn a frightening eating experience into a fun memory that they can build on, producing a healthy eating plan.

Motivation – When all else fails, motivation can do a lot of good. utilizing motivational tools such as positive benefits can help nudge somebody into trying something new. This technique can be especially helpful with kids but do not hesitate to utilize it with adults including yourself. find a special meal, healthy dessert, or desirable experience like a day trip somewhere as a method to encourage embracing a new food choice.
