If you’re raising a child with picky eating or ARFID (Avoidant Restrictive Food Intake Disorder), chances are you have some questions, like:
- When you have a picky eater with strong preferences, should you cater to their short list of acceptable foods?
- Is picky eating just a preference or is it a form of anxiety or phobia?
- Should you reward picky eaters for trying new foods?
- What’s the best way to introduce new foods?
Listen as Harvard professor Jenny Thomas, PhD, co-author of The Picky Eater’s Recovery Book, shares research-based answers to these questions and more.
