When your baby turns their nose up at the veggies you offer, or your toddler refuses to eat any food that isn’t white, it’s normal to think: “Oh no! Do I have a picky eater? What do I do?” In this episode, James Shander, MD, a pediatrician at the Children's Wisconsin Pewaukee Pediatrics primary care office, offers this reassuring perspective: picky eating is a normal part of your baby’s development. Dr. Shander offers an expert look at what’s causing your toddler’s reluctance to try new foods, and offers helpful tips for introducing foods, avoiding power struggles and more.
