There are so many studies out about food and kids. The press loves to sensationalize new food claims and create enticing headlines like this one, “The secret to getting toddlers to eat – picture books.” This study shows that once toddlers have seen pictures of new fruits and veggies they are more likely to try them. My toddler is sometimes a picky eater. I have been using this iphone App called “Toddler Teasers Food” to entertain her when I get desperate for a break. The screen shows a few fruits and veggies and asks the toddler to “touch the green beans.” When she gets the right answer a few times, she gets a virtual sticker. The iPhone App has definitely taught my toddler to identify a green pepper, but she still won’t eat green peppers. One step at a time.
