If your child refuses to eat anything but plain noodles, you may have a picky eater at your table. The behavior starts as early as age 1, and signs include refusing foods often and only eating certain kinds. It can be frustrating to make sure your picky eater gets the vitamins and nutrients they need. The good news? Mercy Kids experts have some great tips for avoiding mealtime battles.
Try not to get frustrated with your picky eater. Just make healthy foods available and give your child's appetite and eating behaviors time to mature. And if parents eat healthy, it’s more likely their children will, too. If you’re concerned about your child’s diet, talk with your Mercy Kids care team to determine whether other issues may be present.
