I'm a huge fan of Dr. Dina Rose's blog It's Not About Nutrition. She's "changing the conversation from nutrition to habits" on the assumption that, with good habits comes good nutrition (eventually). Her advice is often counterintuitive, as in: When The Less Nutritious Choice Is Right.
I'm totally fascinated by what she has to say and it makes a lot of sense, although I find myself falling into traps she hopes to teach parents to avoid. One biggie: serving the same, go-to reliable meals you know your kid will eat.
Dr. Rose advocates the Rotation Rule: switching which foods you serve day-to-day. The habit she's encouraging is the willingness to try new foods. It all begins with exposure to new foods, plain and simple.
Seems simple enough, but there's more to it than that, especially with die-hard picky eaters. I encourage you to click through and read the entire post. I'd love to hear your thoughts.
