My child is a picky eater

Balancing meals

Dessert can be a good way to complete an unbalanced meal. If your child didn’t eat his veggies, give him a colourful fruit salad as a dessert. If he refused to eat meat, think about yogurt, milk or tofu mousse for protein. If he didn’t touch his pasta or rice, a homemade muffin will be the perfect derssert ! 

Kids can be unpredictable. They can like a certain food one day and refuse to eat it a few days later. Don’t put too much pressure on your little one and continue to offer him a diversified menu. The foods to which he’s exposed as a child will influence him throughout his life.
