Child Nutrition: Help Your Child Become a Good Eater

Feeding young children can be challenging. If your “eats everything” toddler changed into a picky preschooler almost overnight, be assured that this is a normal part of childhood.

Pickiness around food, especially healthy foods, can be frustrating for parents. And while getting through this stage takes time and patience, you can help your child learn healthy eating habits even when it feels like every food you offer is being rejected.

The Ella at the Dinner Table book and tips can help.
