• when picky eating typically starts to show up
• what types of things might set off a picky eater and how to avoid them
• tips and tricks to empower picky eaters
• how to remove the stress from feeding your kids
• just how concerned you should be about your child’s eating habits

If you are pregnant, this episode might be a bit early for you, but getting ahead of this is huge! Many parents don’t realize their kid has become a picky eater because one day they are trying everything and eating a variety of foods, and seemingly overnight they are locked in just a few things they love.

The last thing we want is for our kids to have any negative thoughts or emotions toward food and this episode can really help you navigate this particularly difficult phase (2-5 years) in your child’s development.
