Parent to a child with fussy eating habits? Help may be on the way
February 9th, 2020
Kerri Scholman has tried just about everything to get her three-year-old daughter, Emerson, to eat more than Tater Tots, French fries, strawberries, chocolate and chips.
She has offered rewards. She has tried, “If I take a bite, will you take a bite?” She once even got the family dog involved, asking Emerson, if the dog ate some, would she? She served Emerson pureed meals on the advice of a dietitian. Nothing has worked.
Mealtime is still a battle of wills that Ms. Scholman lost so many times that she recently gave up.
