I have a picky eater in my house. For something that shouldn’t be that big a deal, that is hard to admit. I feel like it is a signal that I have either failed as a mother, or that I just don’t care enough to serve my child healthy food, or even that I have lost control over my children. None of these are good things, and realistically I don’t think any of these things are true. Eating can be surprisingly complicated, and anything with small children can have unanticipated challenges.

Ben has been a bit of a picky eater for awhile now, and Ali and Sammy are already showing strong preferences for certain foods. Now that Ben is going to school and eating more meals away from home I decided to was time to try to tackle this eating situation. Before we get into how we are doing that, I want to take a look back at how we got here.
