Is your baby a picky eater?
You have done your research on plant-based whole foods, explained your lifestyle change to family and friends, and made a plan of action for the child’s conflicting life situations. But your child won’t eat the veggies.
If this story is familiar to you, you have a picky eater on your hands.
You need to resolve picky eating even if your child is not ‘ill’, because a poor diet will limit the child’s full health and academic potential. Besides, picky eating makes children tired, irritable, and may reflect an internal medical issue.
The first thing to remember is to take control of your child’s diet – don’t leave the composition of their plate to them!
All in all, with good planning, compassionate love, and plant-based whole foods, you can do anything!
