Milk is every child's first food. Nothing else is supposed to taste good!
That's right. Biology dictates a limited palate for babies and toddlers. Why would you have a taste for foods that require teeth before you even have teeth?
But, as your child grows older, he or she should develop a taste for more foods. Healthier foods.
If that's not happening, I have a book for you.
A children's book about picky eating that can help
This children's about a child who won't eat anything, How Only Baloney Got Cured of Spoiled-Taste-Buds-Atitis, is a form of bibliotherapy. Bibliotherapy is the use of children's books to address children's problems.
And here's what makes "Only Baloney" special: it was conceived of by a professional storyteller (me) and a Registered Dietitian!
"Only Baloney" is the story of a picky eater who starts thinking that everything tastes "yucky"...except baloney! When he starts feeling sick and his parents take him to the doctor, he starts to realize his fussy eating is a real problem.
It's an important story, and one any child could benefit from. But Suzette and I have done something else to make sure that Only Baloney's message really hits home...
Illustrations are important!
The goal with a behavior book is to get your child to interact with it repeatedly. That way the book's lessons are reinforced. That's why we offer two PDF versions of Only Baloney...
