You asked me to take that one bite and it’s a 45-minute stand-off or it’s a panic attack or it’s a meltdown. And I think it’s really cruel and it really is a disservice to parents to say, ‘Just make them eat a bite.’
Join Stephanie and Katja Rowell MD, who teaches the importance of a healthy feeding relationship to health care providers, family therapists and childcare staff and consults with corporate clients, nutrition education and public health providers, as they discuss feeding picky eaters.
You’ll also hear from a mom within our Network, Meghan Mettling from our Dayton Moms Blog sister site, author of My Kid Doesn’t Eat Kale, as she shares her experience with a picky eater!
