Rather than simply insist your child eat a new food, try the following:
1.Offer a new food only when your child is hungry
2.Present only one new food at a time
3.Make it fun- present the food as a game
4.Cut the food into unusual shapes like doll, car, birds etc
5.Serve new food with favorite foods to increase acceptance
6.Eat the new food yourself in front of your baby because children love to imitate
7.Have your child help to prepare foods. Often they will be more willing to try something when they helped to make it.
8. Limit beverages, ice cream, junk food . Picky eaters often fill up on liquids instead.
9.Limit snacks to two per day.
10.Make the food a bit oily so that little amount can provide more calorie
11.Offer new food during main meal time, not during snacks time
