National Nutrition Month is a very important month for dietitians.  As a dietitian, and a mom, I know firsthand that picky eating can be TOUGH. That’s why I joined forces to spread the message of instilling good habits in your picky eaters in a blog I wrote for Food & Nutrition Magazine and a tv segment I did for our local KCTV 5.

In a recent visit with my pediatrician, I expressed frustration with my child’s picky eating. She gave the piece of advice I have given many times to parents: “Just continue to offer a wide variety of foods.” While this may sound great, the reality for busy families is that often there isn’t time for trial and error.

If you are frustrated, like I am, with trying to make sure your picky eater is getting all the nutrients he or she needs, here’s some good news for you: Nutrition is more than kale salads and green smoothies.

One of the most important things we can teach our children is how to eat. I’m not talking about how to use a fork, but how to eat in response to hunger and our body’s nutritional needs, not external cues. In honor of National Nutrition Month, here are some tips for modeling how to eat healthfully and, in turn, teach our children to develop a lifestyle of healthy choices surrounding food
