Here at Tips for Toddlers, we’re always looking for new ideas when it comes to feeding picky eaters. For what seemed like forever, my daughter would only eat chicken and applesauce, pushing away any vegetable I put in front of her. That eventually passed, but in the interim I had to sneak veggies into everything I made.

A new book just came across my desk called Give Peas a Chancethe ultimate survival guide for parents of picky toddlers. It’s written by Kate Samelais, who is a pediatric nutritionist and the mom of a picky eater. Here are the details:

Give Peas a Chance provides parents with a unique set of tips and secrets to create and foster a healthy food relationship with their toddler and, most importantly, helps them keep their sanity at the dinner table.

From grazers to excessive drinkers, Give Peas a Chance covers a wide range of concerns for parents:

·        Is your toddler really a picky eater? —Many parents are surprised to find out that some “picky” eating habits are perfectly normal during a toddler’s developmental stage. Learn how to develop a sense of clarity about your child’s natural desire to eat small amounts of food on-the-go.

·        From baby food to table food—Parents are often afraid to move their toddler to table food, because they fear their toddler could not eat enough on his own. Learn how to make healthy and safe alternatives to baby food from your own kitchen that will help you make the transition.

·        How much food is enough? —Understanding key concepts, such as, it is common for your toddler to eat only one “good” meal per day or every other day, will help you learn how much food is enough for your tot to thrive.

·        Understanding your toddler’s digestive health— Supporting your child’s digestive health is one of the most important factors when potty training. Learn how to manage digestive issues through incorporating natural foods such as pear juice, garlic, and applesauce, and find out if going gluten─free is best for your child.

·        Putting it all together—Find out why foods such as yogurt, oats, leafy green vegetables, and even salmon are essential to incorporate into your child’s diet and how to put together quick easy recipes, kid-friendly table settings, and a feeding schedule that fits into your toddler’s on-the-go
