Do I have to eat this?

At the beginning of every month, I plan out all the meals that we are going to eat. For the whole month. I do this for a few reasons (meal planning, to ensure we aren't getting repetitive with our dinners, and to allow myself a few nights off from cooking each week). And I am painfully aware that as I plan out the meals there will be a number of dinners my son will not want to eat. Chicken tikka masala? No way. Pulled pork sandwiches? Not…

The problems of a picky eater

At one point of my childhood, I stopped eating meat. It was a phase and didn't last too long, and my Mother just dealt with it by giving me lots of veggies. (Sorry, Mom!) When she tells this story today, she remarks that it was good timing because my brother was going through a phase of not eating vegetables and everything evened out.…

Boiled pigeon's feet for dinner

It's 6:30 pm. I've put in a nine-hour day at the office, I've just gotten home and I'm at the stove. I am sauteing, chopping, and seasoning something delicious, when my son comes downstairs.…

Should We Eat This?

I cannot be the only...who has slaved away in the kitchen, with multiple pots on the stove top, the oven a'baking, and even the BBQ smoking away outside, to finally sit down at the dinner table, look at the food and think, "is this cooked enough?"

As a mother of a finicky eater, the persnickety Sonny Boy,  I threw…

Your Kid Can Be a Veggie Virtuoso - Balanced Nutrition for Kids

Mealtimes are as different across the country as, well, families.  Each family approaches mealtime in a way that works for their particular situation.  Some choose a buffet style option where family members fill their plates at the stovetop or counter and then sit down at the table.  Others choose a family style option where serving bowls or plates are passed around the table, each family member taking a portion of his or her choosing.  And then there are other families, typically with…

Asparagus is not "yucky"

I was in the grocery store a couple of weeks ago and I over heard a conversation between a mother and her (maybe) 5 year old son.  They were standing next to a large display of asparagus in the middle of the produce section.  Here's what I heard:

Boy: Mom, what's that?

Mom: It's Asparagus.

Boy: Can we get some?

Mom: No, Asparagus is yucky.

This small interchange really stuck in my craw.  It took all my will power to keep myself from rushing the asparagus…

Picky eater? Not in my house......YET!

It's exciting, entering the big bad world of introducing SOLID FOOD to my baby.  We've been at it since she was 6 months (now 9 months) and have been "mostly" sailing along smoothly.


I can see already though how some might encounter some bumps in the road. I find my daughter gets bored easily with the same foods and is constantly looking for something new.


She loves…

How To Get Your Toddler To Try New Foods

Many dietitians, nurses, and pediatricians have found that picky eaters can be won over to new and interesting foods by employing a trick of the trade called the "one-bite rule." It is as simple as the name implies: you simply ask that your child try one single bite of the new food you're introducing. By the time this rule can be applied, namely, to your toddlers and young children, they have already acquired a simple set of tastes. Don't blitz them with tangy… Continue

An Afternoon at the Park

Tableside Tricks of the Trade

Why is it that kids will happily gorge themselves on ice cream, candy, or gooey-cheesy things but turn their little button noses up at salads, lentils or other nutritious-from-the-garden-foods? I know the scientific and biological reasons, as well as understanding that some parents are in a perpetual survival mode with their kids when it comes to their diets. But as a self-proclaimed foodie, I want to expose my little one to all the flavors the world has to offer. Bit by bit, of…

Black Friday – it’s Not Just About Fashion

Fashion, eh? It comes and goes, then comes back around again, at once fleeting and eternal. A style is in one month and then is never heard of again – until it is heard of again, of course.

The quest for fashionable clothes never ends; it’s just that what is in vogue is always changing.…
