f you have a picky little eater you know how frustrating meal time can be. The litany goes on and on. Whatever you set before the child is too wrinkly, squishy, fruity, fishy, slimy, slurpy, bubbly, burpy, crunchy, stringy or sticky.
ou can add too spicy, cheesy, fizzy, greeny, gooey, and pickley to the list of why whatever is sitting there on the plate is just pee-yooey! But, if you are lucky, the child will eventually relent and try just a nibble of the offending offering. And, if you are really lucky, the child actually will declare that the morsel is yummy!
f this scenario sounds familiar, then this simple picture book will probably be a hit in your household. Sometimes, if we can get a person to observe and then laugh at behavior that needs modification, we can bring about a desired change. Let's hope so!
fter sharing this picture book with your little gourmet, he or she may not be so picky and hard to please. If not – there are always peanut butter and jelly sandwichs!
