My 4 year old is an extreme picky eater. The worst part is she won't even TRY anything new! Please help. Any tips or advice would be great!

My little boy is the same, the only addvice is not to stress and make a deal out of it. Just keep putting small amounts of the foods they wont eat on the plate and take them away if they are left. The last thing you want is to make a battle of meal time as this justs sets the scene for years to come. xxx

I talked about this with my doctor. My oldest would eat anything until just before she turned 2. Then her world revolved around PB&J, chicken nuggets and fruit. She's 3 1/2 now and his advice is as long as the foods she's eating are healthy, don't fret. Offer a variety of foods and let her choose what she wants to eat and what she doesn't want to eat.
