Mom Updates The Existing Food Pyramid To What Her Kids Are Actually Willing To Eat

Picky eating is a phase most toddlers go through. While it’s usually a natural process that only means that a child is starting to develop food preferences, it often causes a headache for the child’s parents. Every parent who has experienced it with their toddler knows how unpredictable their tastes can get. Kids can eat the same kind of food for weeks, and nothing else, until one day they throw a temper tantrum at the sight of their favorite food. However, after some time, the child’s appetite and preferences will become a lot easier to manage, leaving parents to only hope that this moment will come as fast as possible.
