When your Kid Doesn’t Like the Texture of Foods S5E3


In today’s episode we talk about one of the most common challenges picky eaters face when trying new foods – texture! Many kids will refuse foods that “feel funny” in their mouths like meat or starchy vegetables.We also talk through practical solutions you can implement when your child does not want to eat foods with specific textures.

This 5th season of the MOMables Podcast is all about helping our picky eaters try new foods and establishing happier mealtimes.

Topics discussed this episode:

• When texture issues need to be adressed • How sensory activities can help a child with texture aversions • Getting more protein in your child's diet when they refuse to eat meat • Creative ways to change the texture of problem foods... and so much more!

This episode is brought to you by Happier Plates, my digital course for parents who want to teach their kids healthy eating habits for life.
