Picky Eaters vs. Problem Feeders: Reasons, Strategies and Resources for Moving Forward
Feeding our children, at any age, is the most basic way we nurture them and support their health and development. But too often, especially with picky eaters, mealtime becomes a battleground and a source of stress for the whole family. This week’s Mom Enough guest, Occupational Therapist Robin Campbell from St. David’s Center for Child & Family Development, brings years of experience and wisdom to this discussion of how to take the stress out of mealtime, how to identify underlying reasons for your child’s food challenges and how to know when professional help is in order.
What challenges have you encountered with your child’s eating and how has that varied at different stages of development? What strategies have you found to be effective in helping picky eaters through these challenges? What might you do differently based on what you heard in this Mom Enough show?
