My younger brother and I were picky eaters. My mom circumvented this by giving my brother and I a small portion of a food we've never eaten, and told us that we have to try it once. If we didn't like it, she would eat the rest of it, but we had to at least take a bite of it. 9 times out 10 we ended up loving the food and wanted more of it (she regretted that decision after feeding us lobster). Now my brother and I will try anything! Hope that tactic works if/when I have kids :D Report
For the most party, a good article and I agree with most of it.

The one thing I don't agree with is Thy child is responsible for deciding how much (if any) will be eaten. If I didn't tell my children they had to eat one bite of the new food on their plate then they would never try it and those "10 attempts" would never really happen. For instance, when introducing a new fruit, I put one piece on the plate with their other fruit. They must eat that one piece. The next time I will put three. They must eat one still. When they eat all three, that's how I know that they like it and can start giving regular portions to that child. Report
