June 22, 2007, Newsletter Issue #145: Nutrition for fussy eaters

Tip of the Week

When feeding a picky eater, it is important to offer all of the food groups at each meal. Therefore, at breakfast, lunch and dinner offer her a bread or cereal item, a dairy item, a fruit or vegetable, and a protein source. The key is to offer, not force the foods. Studies have shown that children will eat a well rounded diet over the course of a week, if they are continually offered healthy choices. Offering each group at each meal presents opportunity. Sweets should not be one of the mealtime choices.
