  • Some children are picky eaters due to sensory issues. If that is the case, we advise you to speak with an occupational therapist professional who can help.

Key Takeaways

  • It’s common for toddlers to be picky eaters. This is how they assert a sense of control of themselves and their environment.
  • Parents struggle with this because we too, have a sense of control and we put so much emphasis on whether or not we are good parents by how our children eat.
  • We know if our child is being a picky eater because their eating habits are a repeated stress for the parent and child.
  • We ease our own stress by putting the children in front of the television, but what then happens is the child loses the ability to read their body’s cues. 

Actionable Solutions

 How to Set Up Your Dinner Table

  • Always offer bread and butter at the table. If your child will eat nothing else, you know they’ll have some carbohydrates and fat at least.
  • Structure the meal with something you know your child will eat. If you know they like cheese, make sure there is cheese in what is being served.

The Division of Responsibility

  • Your Responsibility: What is being eat, where and when.
  • Your Child’s Responsibility: How much they eat, and whether they eat any of it.
