Picky Eater Strategies – the first step

Picky Eater Strategies – the first step

It wasn’t that long ago that our family made the switch from eating a highly processed diet of convenience foods to an all natural diet.  I first decided to make the changes because of my daughter’s ADHD-like symptoms, but became ever more determined to make the changes after researching the common additives in processed foods for myself.  (Read more about our reasons in the 6 Week Challenge.)

I knew I was ready for a change, but my daughter had always been a severely picky eater.  I didn’t know what to expect from her once I took away her favorite cookies and crackers.  In the weeks before I instituted the changes I read loads of articles and books on strategies for picky eaters.  I’ve pulled together a lot of information, but to be honest it’s still a never-ending trial and error experiment in our house.  I know there are throngs of other moms who struggle as well.  So this is the first in a series of Picky Eater Strategies where I’ll share some of the things that have worked well for us, and hopefully you’ll share some things as well.
