"When I work with families who have a child with picky eating, I"m always encouraging them to cook with their kids! This is the best way for kids to have positive food exposures, which is the first step to accepting new foods.

Cooking takes away the intimidation of having to take a bite while giving them the exposure of sight, smell, and perhaps the tactile feel by touching.

Here are some recipes I"ve tested and tried with my kids and are wonderful first recipes to try with your own. Many older kids will be able to make these by themselves. For more support and ideas for cooking with kids, see my blog post; Getting Kids Involved in The Kitchen.

Kale chips

If your child doesn"t enjoy the green vegetables or salad but does love a crunchy snack, they may be into Kale Chips. These are so simple to prepare and my kids gobble them up.


Hummus

I love to include foods with protein and healthy fats in a meal or snack for kids and hummus is a perfect fit with the high fiber and protein-dense garbanzo beans paired with olive oil and sesame seed paste (Tahini) for some healthy fats."
