Why this Works for Picky Eaters

Kids need about 30 or more exposures to even decide to try a new food. Using a topping bar with an assortment of different food recipes increases their exposure to these new foods.

So don’t worry if your child doesn’t try everything, even just seeing the new food is one step closer; your child may try that mushroom or explore that three bean casserole.

Let Kids Serve Themselves

Kids are also more likely to have new foods if they get to serve themselves. So don’t force feed your tots, let them experience the sights, the smells, the tastes of what they want.

Here are some great topping bar ideas for your picky eater and the whole family.
