Simple tricks to satisfy picky eaters

Do you have a child who is a picky eater? If so, you may find the following, courtesy of Newspaper Metro, helpful.
I wish I would have thought about these clever techniques with my daughters years ago. However, to those of you with young children who are picky eaters, don’t lose heart. Your picky young eaters will grow up to enjoy different foods later in life. Take it from me, my two adult daughters are not nearly as picky today as they were as young girls.

Children and allowance

When my two daughters were young girls their father and I taught them to earn their allowance each week.
They each had different household chores to do. They were simple, such as cleaning their room, picking up their toys, dusting the furniture and washing dishes. At the end of each week, if their chores were completed, they were handed an allowance. We then encouraged them to save part, and they could spend the rest on something they wanted. Giving allowances, and our children working toward the reward, also showed them responsibility.
