BBC: Fussy-eating toddlers ‘not the fault of parents’

Research in the UK suggests that ‘fussy eating’ is largely due to genetics, but that these behaviors can be changed.

Also wanted to highlight two great suggestions in the advice section of the article…

“Give small portions and praise your child for eating, even if they only manage a little”


“If your child rejects the food, don’t force them to eat it. Just take the food away without comment and try to stay calm”
