The Secret to Healthy Eating is Trying New Foods 

What makes having a picky eater challenging is knowing that he can’t possibly be eating enough food, or enough variety, to be a healthy child.  

You know deep down that getting your child to try new food is the secret to getting out of this rut. Picky eating is literally stealing your child’s health! 

But, whenever you encourage your child to try something new, talk about how good it will taste, or encourage healthier eating, it backfires. 

What happens? Your child embraces his favorite foods even more. He drops another food from his “liked” food list, limiting his nutrition further. He becomes more emotional at the table or may show signs of stress and angst when it comes to the topic of food. 

Let’s face it. Getting your child to try new food has always been hard.  

Really hard.

Shift Your Thinking about Picky Eaters 

What if I told you…

…there’s more to getting a child to try new food than the run-of-the-mill tips and tricks 

…there’s an underlying reason your child is not willing to try new food and you need to understand WHAT that is

…the way you’re feeding your child may be part of the problem  

…there may be a bigger set of circumstances (not just food) that has gotten you and your child in this position  

No matter the reason behind your child’s unwillingness to try new food, you’re still in that uncomfortable space: You need food for picky eaters that will appeal to your child. And your child needs to taste and try new food to eat healthier, be healthier and grow optimally.

But, you’re not having success introducing new food and you don’t want to make the situation worse.

Introducing Try New Food: A Picky Eater Book that Can Help

Try New Food is a book for parents of picky eaters designed to help them encourage their children to try new food… without gimmicks, coercion or pressure. 

Written by Jill Castle, a 28-year veteran of pediatric nutrition, Try New Food outlines a step-by-step process for helping your child learn about new foods and become courageous enough to taste them. 

Try New Food offers a progressive plan for tasting new food week after week, while offering you the psychology behind what your child needs to move forward.  

The program outlined in this book is based on the experiences Jill has had in her own private practice working with picky eaters and extreme picky eaters.

Jill believes in a gradual, step-by-step approach to food for picky eaters, using new food trials and incorporating a pressure-free atmosphere at family meals. 

Her approach is the difference between raising adventurous, willing food “try-ers” and those who stay stuck with a picky and limited diet.  

What You Will Learn about Picky Eaters:

  • The reasons kids tend to be picky and why they hang on to picky eating for years and years 
  • The role your food parenting plays in ongoing food refusal 
  • How family mealtimes can make your child’s eating worse (and what to do instead) 
  • How to reset your feeding mindset and strategies to help your child be willing to try new food 
  • How to design a food trial program for your child 
  • How to move from one liked food to a new liked food 
  • How to select new foods for your child to try & MORE!

If you’re dealing with a picky eater, this is the book for you! It will take you from worried to empowered, and your child from fussy eater to adventurous eater (even if he’s extremely picky!)

There’s no reason for your child to stay picky and become an unhealthy eater. Quite the contrary, it’s totally possible to help your child transition out of picky eating in a sensitive, caring way and raise him or her to be a healthy eater. Try New Food is your guiding light.
