Tools For Picky Eaters
We are back for part 3!! How amazing is all this information we have been sharing together!! I am so honoured you have made it to session 3 of this series.
In this part I am going to GIFT you with some tools to simplify the healthy eating process.
Click Below for my Likes and Fav Meals charts.
These two forms will help you grow a list with your child focusing on the foods they actually want to eat.
Likes List~ The goal is to add foods to all sections and to be praised when new healthy foods get added. Sit with your child and add as many items that they know they like to the lists. Once you have completed the list, post one or both on the fridge, making it a goal to be adding a couple new foods to the list each week. Be sure to offer lots of praise as new healthy foods are added!
Fav Meals Chart~ The goal of this chart is to add all existing meals your child likes and add new ones as they try them. Most children love being able to add meals to their list, and it helps moms and dads with planning. As with the LIKES LISTS be sure to offer lots of praise for new meals that get added. I enjoy going through healthy cookbooks with my children looking at new recipes they can choose and we try together!
