About Childhood Nutrition Expert, Jill Castle, MS, RDN
As a pediatric dietitian, I’ve worked with many families, helping them through typical toddler picky eating and more serious, extreme picky eating. Universally, families need to make a mental shift about their picky eater, adopt positive feeding practices, and work on the food and feeding environment, as much as the new foods they offer.
As a mom of four, who has had a few picky eaters myself, I know that mistakes can be made. Innocent, unknowing mistakes. Mistakes that can render significant eating challenges down the line. Too much pressure to eat, serving the same foods over and over, and becoming a short-order cook stalls and inhibits progress with eating.
I don’t want that for you. Or for your child.
I wrote Try New Food with you in mind. I know a confident, knowledgeable parent will be relaxed, calm and connected when feeding and helping her child try new food. And that’s good news for you...and especially for your child.
