    Default How do you back up your child's nutrition?

    It seems to be almost inevitable. That infant that seemed to be keen on nonstop feedings ages into toddlerhood and beyond, suddenly recognizing that those taste buds = power. Mom and dad can be so desperate for their child to eat *something* that they may find that important vitamins and minerals fell by the wayside.

    At some point or another, many parents share a concern that their little one may not be getting enough to eat... or maybe not enough of the right balance of foods! Do you have a toddler that pushes everything but cereal away? Perhaps you have a preschooler that insists they only want to eat a cheese sandwich... for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Maybe your 7 year old absolutely REFUSES to eat fruits - ever!

    Whatever your child's personal quirk, the bottom line is that food pyramid you wish to aim for has toppled to look more like a flat pancake. What ways do you employ to try to insure your child gets the nutrition he/she needs? Share your secrets or ask for advice if you have a tough "nut" to crack (literally!)

    We'll be pulling some of our favorite tips into an upcoming article! Feel free to email me your ideas as well!

    Thanks!

    My DD is a ridiculously picky eater! All she wants is little snacks! She won't eat an entire meal... ever! She eats like a bird (although her weight is perfect with her age), so to make sure she gets some nutrients, I make sure that she has gummy vitamins every day and I also started her drinking those Breakfast Essentials shakes and telling her that it's chocolate milk! They're packed with vitamins and minerals!
