Books that encourage picky kids to eat
You've tried giving healthy foods magical names. You've tried the deceptively delicious approach and have even resorted to packaging foods with Big Mac paper to get your kids to eat their veggies, but it's still a struggle. Maybe it's time to throw in the towel and make eating fun.
Danielle Wiley blogger at Foodmomiac and newly created Chatterbox shares a list of children's books that might help healthy foods like pears and peas seem a little less like a motherly-inflicted torture devices and more like something others manage to swallow without spitting across the room with a rebel yell.
- Little Pea by Amy Krause Rosenthal
- The Pigeon Finds a Hot Dog by Mo Willems
- My Food/Mi Comida by Rebecca Emberely
- The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle
- Two Old Potatoes and Me by John Coy
- I Will Never Eat a Tomato by Lauren Child
Pair a child's food book with a little apron and miniature kitchen set and you have a gift idea that might even head off eating issues before they start (or at least make the little buggers look super cute when refusing to touch the foods they helped prepare.)
