Handy tip for encouraging picky eaters

My daughter has a 3-step procedure for figuring out if she likes a new food:

1) The aesthetic test - does it look good?
2) The touch test - does it feel ok?
3) The lick test. Self-explanatory.

Many times, new foods do not pass test #1, which is very frustrating.

We have had some success with encouraging her to add the finger test: putting food on her finger and tasting it. That's how we found out she likes Fench Onion Soup!

Pin It!

  1. My daughter who is 6 now, will eat a sour pickle but, gags on mashed potatos. We have just now got her where she will try something new not based on looks.

    BTW - I love your travels tips they are helpful. Especially the pop-up laundry basket.


    Have a great day!
