Picky Eaters - The Dawn of Understanding

"In general my children refuse to eat anything that hasn't danced on television." (Erma Bombeck, 1927-1996)

Once upon a time not so very long ago, you probably envisioned that your children would be good, healthy eaters while growing up. Naturally, they would like everything you placed before them on the dinner table, and would beg for seconds and sometimes thirds. However, because you are reading this article, that lovely bubble has most likely popped and disintegrated into the mess you may find yourself cleaning off the floor, table, or wherever your delicious entrees happen to land thanks to your picky eaters.

Keeping up with your child's picky eating preferences can be frustrating, especially when one week he or she will only eat peanut-butter sandwiches, and the next cheese-covered French fries. Then, when he or she develops the nasty habit of putting catsup on everything - including ice cream ? you may think you have reached the ultimate level of gross-out.

Do not despair because eventually your picky eater child will become bored with that food of choice and move on to something else!

Many children undergo a period of highly selective eating, commonly referred to as "picky eaters." The reality is that all children (not just what you might consider a picky eater child) do not have the same taste buds as adults. Instead, their palates are undeveloped and may be more sensitive to different textures, flavors, and spices.

As children grow older, their tastes literally change, expanding to include more foods ? but not always. When this does not happen, clever picky eater coping strategies are needed.

Many explanations exist for children's unusual picky eating habits that bypass biological and developmental reasons. Today, you will discover numerous forms of public awareness and understanding about picky eaters. In fact, discussion forums and clubs devoted to the mysteries of picky eaters, along with what makes these folks tick are everywhere. We are not just talking about kids, but also adults who grew up as picky eaters and now find themselves in this exclusive category as they struggle with their unique appetites.

Remember, when it comes to picky eaters, "unique" is the keyword. Your picky eater child may have a different palate, but he or she is not strange, weird, or even unusual. A variety of reasons could account for his or her taste buds being apart from other children.
