BOOST Kids Essentials Helps Me with My Picky Eater

Last week, I shared with you the frustrating eating habits of my children.  During the BOOST giveaway, I have loved reading your tips on how you get your picky eaters to expand their horizons and try new things. Thanks for all of your great suggestions!

One of the things I do when faced with parenting issues is turn to my close friends for advice.  For example, my good friend Cecelia from Cool Baby Kid, suggested using a divided tray at meals which offers her children multiple choices at mealtime.  She finds that letting her child make her own choices helps form healthy habits.  My friend Renee from What Mommies Need suggests offering a new food at least 10 times.  Her child may turn his nose up at the food the first time, but may give it a try after seeing it for a second or third time.

This month, BOOST Kids Essentials is featuring family videos on their Facebook page and you can follow along with the Brunelle’s story.  Their child Van is a picky eater and tends to be underweight.  They have turned to BOOST to provide the essential nutrients and calories to help their son gain weight.  Fortunately, both of my daughters love BOOST and I, too, use it to supplement their meals.

I would love to hear more of your tips on how you handle picky eating.  Do you supplement with vitamins?  Do you use nutritional beverages?  Are you worried about your child’s calorie intake?  Share you thoughts on my Facebook Wall and make sure to tag BOOST! And on June 6th at 10:00am, I would love for you to come chat with me LIVE on the BOOST Kids Essentials Facebook page!

This post is the opinion of the Experimental Mommy.  While I was compensated for my time and effort, all opinions are 100% mine.

  1. Those are great ideas. I don’t use Facebook, but I wanted to share that my daughter knows there is a one bite rule for every food on her plate. She has to take at least one bite; if she doesn’t like the food she is not required to eat anymore. We have often found that, maybe after a time or two of taking one bite, she finds that she actually likes the food and eats all of it! I think not forcing the issue and giving her the chance to make decisions about what she’s eating makes all the difference.
