Even as a pediatric dietitian, I’ve had a true taste of what it’s like to have a persistent picky eater, and how my clients and followers must feel when they come to me, desperate for advice on how they can get their child to eat something–anything–at a meal.
Even though I’m armed with knowledge and expertise in the area of picky eating (I’m a registered dietitian, after all!), experiencing it first-hand has been enlightening. It has allowed me to relate to picky eating parents on a whole new level, which I’m thankful for.
