Sometimes it's the smallest things that make a fussy eater a "fussy eater", and sometimes they are fixed more easily than you may think! This extract from an article we came across made alot of sense, so we thought we would share it with you all.

"Also try switching things up: Serve raw those veggies your child shuns when cooked instead (as long as they're not a choking hazard), and vice versa. The problem may be texture—or even temperature, says dietitian Melissa Halas-Liang, R.D., a mom and founder of superkidsnutrition.com: “A lot of kids who don't like cooked peas will eat them frozen, right out of the bag.”

 

At the end of the day it's about getting kids to actually eat healthy foods, and develop good eating habits from the earliest of stages. It doesn't really matter if they prefer raw mushrooms to cooked mushrooms, it's more about getting that nutrition and exposing their tastebuds to as many wholesome foods as possible.

So do a little trial and error and see what works for your child. If they hesitate or struggle to eat a particular vegetable, try serving it in the opposite form (raw/cooked) and this may just change the flavour and texture enough for them to love it!

 

Hope this helps!
