Tips and Tricks for Picky Eaters
Mealtimes can be a great time for family to come together to enjoy food and swap stories. However, for many parents, mealtimes can often mean struggles and stress with seemingly no solutions. For parents of “picky eaters”, mealtimes can be difficult to manage. Setting up an optimal atmosphere and environment for both children and parents can be very helpful in the first steps towards a successful mealtime routine.
If you feel your child is a “picky eater” and have further concerns, you can contact an Occupational Therapist for assessment of feeding, oral motor skills and sensory needs that may impact eating. The OT can help set up an appropriate program to target your goals.
