Small, Daily, Research-Backed Shifts Any Parent Can Make

I’m sure you’ve heard ALL the opinions from people who want you to tough out picky eating, like:

“If he likes french fries, just try carrot sticks!” or “When she’s hungry enough, she’ll eat what you make!”

And, since you’re here right now, I’m assuming those didn’t work. Maybe force just doesn’t feel right, or you can’t muster the energy for a mealtime battle of wills after long days at work. (Who could?!) But, here’s the thing:

Hi! I'm Kacie Barnes.

I’m a pediatric Registered Dietitian Nutritionist, mom of two, eternal realist, and most importantly, I’m mom to a previously extremely picky eater.

Teddy was my “garbage disposal” baby—he ate everything. I was feeling good. But everything changed when he turned 2. He started turning his nose up at all the foods he used to love. I felt so frustrated and disappointed watching the number of foods he liked go down and down.

So, I tried it all.  I used every tool I had. Everything that I was already coaching parents through, I did with my own kid. And, you know what? It worked! Better than I even expected it to.

Now that we’re (mostly) on the other side of picky eating, all I want to do is help other moms like you, who are tired of feeling guilty about what their little one eats. 

I can’t wait for you to see how different it feels when you have the tools you need to put picky eating back in its place!
