Welcome back to the second half of our interview with Jennifer Scribner, author of From Mac & Cheese to Veggies, Please: How to get your kid to eat new foods, end picky eating forever, and stay sane in the process! In the first half, we discussed Jennifer’s own challenges as a picky adult and her top 3 strategies for getting kids eating.
In today’s episode, I put her on the spot on how to use those strategies to get real food into some of the pickiest eaters I’ve known; including a boy who defiantly tried to starve himself instead of eating dinner, and another whose diet is little more than white bread, Cheerios, peanut butter and white rice with nothing on it.
