Breaking a picky eater is no easy feat. My daughter isn’t a terribly picky eater, but I have to take time to introduce her to new foods. She doesn’t just grab things on her own and gobble them up without question — kids rarely do! Here are a few suggestions for helping your picky eater (or should we just say your child?) explore new foods. I’ve read about or tried all of these techniques myself over time. If you have tips of your own, please share!

Try new foods as a family

Meals become much more pleasant when families eat together at the table. Turn off the TV and let the telephone ring so you can concentrate on dinnertime conversation. When the entire family's eating the same meal, kids are more likely to try something new. It also provides a calm, happy atmosphere to discuss the tastes and textures of a new dish. Start with something easy and family-friendly, like this recipe.

Make chicken and stars soup.

Introduce new flavors in a healthy dessert

Just as a spoon full of sugar makes the medicine go down, kids are more open to trying new foods if they're sweet. These frozen ice pops are made with fresh fruits and herbs. Have your kids pick out new fruit to try, pluck herbs, and make popsicles together.

Give foods a new form

Sometimes regular foods in a new shape can make all the difference. My daughter was always wary of lasagna, so I made them in individual cups. She went crazy for the cute shape! It also made it easier for her to try; one little cup was much less intimidating than a large slice of lasagna.

Add something new to something they love

Even the pickiest eater has some food he or she loves. Add new ingredients to the familiar. For example, try putting some greens in your kid's mac and cheese. Be upfront about what you've added and include something new each time you make it. They'll eventually come to accept new flavors and maybe even be curious what will turn up in their mac and cheese next!

Make the texture appealing

Along with new flavors, kids need to learn to appreciate new textures. Kids who are not good chewers should start with simple purées. This way, they'll taste the food without having to chew thick vegetables or cope with an unusual texture. Once they come to enjoy the flavors, you can make the purées chunkier and eventually introduce a full-textured piece of the new food.

Make pear and apricot purée.

10 Tips for Eating Vegetables if You’re a Picky Eater

Everyone tells you to eat your veggies, and you’ve of course been hounded with all of their benefits. Every time you start a new diet hopeful, you have to quit because you can’t handle the food. Or maybe you endlessly put new vegetables in front of your picky family only to have them be your leftovers the next day. You want to quit trying, but you haven’t given up quite yet (otherwise you wouldn’t be reading this article). I’ve compiled tips and tricks to help you eat more veggies and learn to like them, and I hope they help. If like is too strong of a word, let’s shoot for “tolerate,” shall we?

(I also believe this could easily be titled “How to get your kids to eat more veggies” – so feel free to practice this on your spawn, too!)

Quick Run-down: Why You Should Eat Veggies

I know I just said you’re probably tired of being hounded by how beneficial it is to eat these little nuggets of nutrients, but let’s go over it once more, just in case!

Benefits

In no particular order, since who can choose a favorite out of this list?!

  • Alkaline
    • Protein and grains increase acid in your body, which can break down muscle and bone. Eating veggies increases the alkaline load in your body, helping you to build muscle and bone!
    • we need these, guys. Veggies are full of them.
    • a diet high in fruits and veggies has been linked with decrease in cancer risk and helping to fight it!
    • fiber is good for a ton of reasons, one being it helps you feel full and lose weight.
    • Their fiber content is part of this, plus vegetables help you feel full without tons of calories! Let’s celebrate this fact with these good choices!
    • antioxidants are the superheroes that disarm the free radical villains that are set out to damage your cells, make you age faster, and perhaps even cause cancer. More antioxidants, please!
    • diets with high veggie intake have been shown to improve blood cholesterol and glucose levels, as well as lower blood pressure. They are also connected to weight loss, which promotes all of these good things as well!
    • these have anti-inflammatory effects, contain our superhero friends the antioxidants, help repair damage cells, and boost immunity.

    Even if you don’t like vegetables, you’ll still want to work them into your diet because you don’t want to miss out on the awesome benefits, even if for no other reason than to help you lose weight. That being said, you don’t want to be miserable or gagging them down at every meal.

    Here are some ideas to help you incorporate more veggies into your diet and hopefully help you find some that you, dare I say, enjoy!

Every time you start a new diet hopeful, you have to quit because you can’t handle the food. Or maybe you endlessly put new vegetables in front of your picky family only to have them be your leftovers the next day. You want to quit trying, but you haven’t given up quite yet (otherwise you wouldn’t be reading this article). I’ve compiled tips and tricks to help you eat more veggies and learn to like them, and I hope they help. If like is too strong of a word, let’s shoot for “tolerate,” shall we?

                    (I also believe this could easily be titled “How to get your kids to eat more veggies” – so feel free to practice this on your spawn, too!)
