How do you get a "picky" eater to try and explore new foods?  What is food neophobia? Why is structured eating so beneficial? And is it OK to use food as a parenting tool?

Here to help explore and answer some of these questions with us today is Maryann Jacobsen, MS RD.

She is the author of multiple books including, "How to Raise a Mindful Eater," "The Family Dinner Solution," and the co-author of "Fearless Feeding: how to raise healthy eaters from high chair to High School."

  • The difference between picky eating and problem feeding
  • What food neophobia is and how it can impact children
  • The difference between grazing and structured eating
  • How to introduce new foods to your toddler
  • How to end meal time battles
  • Why we shouldn't be using food as a parenting tool
  • And so much more!
