My child is a picky eater. What can I do to ensure that they get a balanced diet?
Helpful tips for meals include:
• offering variety
• always providing at least one well-accepted food
• incorporating less liked foods in a familiar way (like mixing pureed squash into macaroni and cheese or finely shredded zucchini into spaghetti)
• instituting a two-bite or taste rule
Picky eaters often have difficulty with mushy, chewy, or multitextured foods. Therefore, raw veggies may be tolerated better. Experts typically discourage offering different meals to different family members, not modeling healthy eating yourself, and rewarding or penalizing behavior with food.

I saw Doc when I was a senior at central college. He really took great care of me and the patients received great treatments. I just graduated chiropractic school 6 months ago and want to thank Doc for the motivation to pursue chiropractic school.
