  • Don't Blame Yourself
    Parents of naturally good eaters often assume that parents of picky eaters are doing something wrong. But the truth is children seem to have a natural tendency to be either adventurous eaters or picky eaters, irrespective of whatever their parents do or do not do. Ignore the critics (or if you are feeling charitable, thank them for their "kind" advice), and don't let them get you down.
  • Don't Get Stuck on Baby Food
    It's perfectly fine to start your baby on commercially prepared baby foods and snacks, but you'll want to transition to "regular" food after a while. Within reason, your baby can eat much of what you are eating, as long as there are no allergy or choking hazard concerns. Most foods can simply be mashed or ground to the right texture, providing baby with a broader experience in terms of flavor and content. For instance, there is nothing magical about jarred baby food bananas. A mashed-up banana is much fresher and less expensive and allows for a broader range of texture. Plus, it takes no effort at all to prepare.
  • Don't Worry About Sweetness
    Well-meaning "experts" have long suggested starting with the less tasty baby foods like vegetables and meats before moving on to the sweet and delicious fruits. However, this advice fails to appreciate two very important points. First, humans are biologically programmed to love and seek out sweet foods. Delaying their introduction isn't going to make your child like them any less. Second, breast milk is very sweet, so breastfed babies have already been consuming a steady diet of sweetness since the very start. In addition, starting solids is a new experience for your baby, and you don't want to start off the process with a food that is not palatable.
