What to do when picky eating persists past toddlerhood

Picky eating is a very common phase children go through, but what happens when it goes past what’s “normal” and persists past toodlerhood? I welcome Jennifer Friedman, Registered Pediatric Dietician and picky eating expert, and founder of @feedingpickyeaters to discuss:

  • How our mindset impacts if a picky eater will try new food
  • How to use child-based play to introduce new foods
  • How to bridge preferences with new food exposure
