On this episode of Monday Mornings with Dr. Mona, I talk to Megan about her four-year-old and his picky eating. I like to call it “selective or preferential eating because picky eating gets a bad connotation. So, let’s reframe how we approach this together.

We discuss:

  • Why our biases with meals/food matter
  • The power of allowing some control for our children
  • Why pressure backfires

In this new format of Monday Mornings with Dr. Mona that began June 2022, I end each episode with three parenting principles. These principles can be used in various parenting situations, but I explain how the three principles I chose apply to a 4-year old who is hesitant to try new foods.

Tune in to hear me answer these questions.
