Nutrition Heretic
End Picky Eating Forever with Guest Heretic Jennifer Scribner
September 6, 2018
What happens when you have a kid and then realize that diet has everything to do with their health and well-being? Improving your diet can be a challenge, but changing the diet of your fussy eater can be torture…. until you hear today’s guest. Jennifer Scribner has been working with families affected by autism spectrum disorders. And in case you didn’t know, children on the spectrum (and many adults) are the fussiest eaters around. In her new book, From Mac & Cheese to Veggies, Please: How to get your kid to eat new foods, end picky eating forever, and stay sane in the process, she teaches parents how to navigate the turbulent waters of implementing a nutritious diet for children who refuse to eat anything but white flour and sugar. In this episode, she tells us why children get picky in the first place and her 3 top strategies that parents can use to turn that around. Come back again next week for the second half of this interview when Jennifer is put to the test when Adrienne presents her with real life examples of some of the pickiest eaters she's known.
