What to do if Your Child is a Picky Eater

Click on the feeding behavior that best applies to your child for some feeding guidelines to make sure your child’s growth will be on track!


  1. Eat “new food” in your child’s presence without offering any.
    • Casually mention that the food tastes good to capture his interest so that your child will ask for a bite.
    • Offer small portions only.
    • Do not praise or scold regardless of your child’s response.
  2. Never force-feed your child, and never use food to reward or express affection.
  3. Avoid distractions, such as TV or gadgets, during mealtimes.
  4. Choose healthy food.
    • Provide unprocessed food like fruits, vegetables, fortified cereals, or grains, nuts or seeds, meat, poultry, fish or legumes, and dairy products.
  5. Create the “Family Table”.
    • Sit together as a family as often as possible during mealtimes.
    • Limit meals to 20-30 minutes unless your child is still actively eating.
  6. Introduce new food through food chaining.
    • Start with a food your child enjoys. Find food with similar characteristics (taste, texture, smell, color) and introduce gradually in a non-challenging way.
  7. Allay your fears by supplementing your child’s nutrition with PediaSure Plus.
    • PediaSure Plus is the only complete, balanced nutritional supplement with Triple Protein Complex to deliver visible growth and stronger immunity.
