You spent 45 minutes chopping veggies, making sides, and a balanced meal you thought everyone would eat. Your little one yelled, “Dis yucky, mommy!” and threw it at the wall.
When you told him he needed to try a bite, he threw a 30-minute tantrum screaming for “mac ‘n’ cheese”. You still haven’t had a chance to take a bite of dinner and now the baby is crying too. You haul the baby into the kitchen with you to make some mac ‘n’ cheese. Maybe it will make your toddler stop.
You finally sit down to the table again. You shove a few bites of cold dinner into your mouth with the baby on your lap. Your toddler is eating a different dinner. You feel utterly defeated. The guilt is crushing on days like this. You wonder if this means he won’t be able to eat healthy and be healthy later in life. Also, you wonder if you will always have to make 2 meals every night.
You’re stuck in a rut, serving the same things over and over. You served chicken nuggets for dinner again...for the 4th night in a row. You don’t know what else to make. You’re so exhausted when you get home from work. Your toddler only likes chicken nuggets. It feels like survival.
You don’t have enough time. You don’t have a system. You feel like you’re drowning in things you’re supposed to do to care for your child. Meals and snacks are just another thing to add to your list of things you have to do every day. You don’t know where the energy is supposed to come from. By the end of the day, you feel exhausted and don’t have anything left for cooking.
You give your 3-year-old daughter a plate of food and she only eats one bite some days. One bite!
You don’t think she’s getting enough food and she looks skinny. Your pediatrician thinks she is underweight. You’ve tried everything! You’ve bribed her, forced her, yelled - nothing seems to work.
You’re worried she’s not getting what she needs to be healthy. You have a good day if she eats a lot. You’re anxious and worried if she doesn’t. It feels like a roller coaster.
You’re wondering if her development will be affected. You don’t know what to do. You don’t know how to get her to eat enough to grow and thrive. You’re struggling.
Your son won’t eat a new food at all. In fact, a new food can’t even be on his plate or he flips out! He only wants to drink milk and maybe eat strawberries. He knows he can’t have dessert until he eats his meal. Sometimes he sits there for an hour or more!
Lunch is a nightmare. Dinner is a nightmare. You dread every mealtime. You started putting the tablet on during meals just to get him to eat something.
Except now he can’t eat without the tablet. Mealtime is the worst part of your day, every day. You have so much anxiety around it. You don’t think your son is getting what he needs, and you are ready to do whatever it takes to get things back on track.
You've been learning from blogs and social media. You've been reading books and trying things. You're ready to work through a program that walks you through understanding your child and doing what it takes to get them on the road to eating better.
Understand your child and why they are picky. Then give your child the right tools for their body.
Why the cause of picky eating matters and how you can tell what is causing your child's picky eating.
Let go of the guilt for what your child is eating and learn a new way of approaching meal time.
The one thing you can give your child at mealtime that can transform their ability to eat.
When you're feeding a picky eater, you often do whatever it takes to get them to eat...something. Which makes sense, but is the quickest way to enable your child's picky eating and make it worse.
I'll teach you the parenting style that will give your picky eater the chance they need to learn to eat more foods at their own pace.
End food battles with your child before they start. Transform meal times into something you look forward to.
Finally feel confident about how much your child eats and learn what's normal and what's not.
Teach your child to sit at the table and watch how that helps everything.
The "rescue snack" - feeding a child something right after a meal they didn't eat - is one of the most common reasons picky eaters stay picky...
You'll learn the policy that will give you and your child peace of mind about how much they ate at mealtime and what to give afterward.
Feeding your child whenever they are willing to take a bite is common, but you may be undermining your own goal of getting your child to eat more foods. Learn the meal and snack structure that solves this problem and how to make it happen in your home.
Serve one family meal to help your child overcome picky eating and relieve your stress of making multiple meals.
It seems that when you have a picky eater in the family, you have to make multiple meals, but serving different meals to different family members may be making picky eating worse.
Learn to use the BetterBites Plate, a tool that has enabled hundreds of families to serve one meal to their family that has a picky eater.
Is your child getting everything they need to thrive? Learn how to find out if they need extra support or if their diet is adequate now.
Your child may be only eating a small number of foods. If you continue to just serve them that small number of foods, the list isn't going to grow.
I'll teach you the lifestyle change that will begin to change their mindset, your mindset, and their ability to grow into a more varied diet.
Help your child try a new food so that they can learn to eat a more varied diet at their own pace and thrive.
Learn the most fun technique that you will use to teach your child to become comfortable with new foods.
Your child only eats 5 foods and is very resistant to trying new foods. You feel clueless about how to get your child eating more foods so that they can get what they need.
You'll learn the technique that moves the needle on picky eating faster than any other techniques for getting a child to add foods into their diet.
You'll learn tweaks to what you serve and how you serve it to expand the number of foods your child will eat as they are ready.
Finally create a plan that is doable for you and that will keep expanding your child's diet slowly as they are ready.
Don't keep forcing 3 more bites.
Learn to teach them to choose their own bites.
