One of my co-workers from the daytime show, told me about a way of introducing new foods to her 5-year old. Each week they pick one food and her daughter tries that one new food a week.This way, the kid can get a handle on one food only for the whole week instead of too many new choices and tastes at once. We had Jodie Foster on the show and she talked about how she gets her two kids, who are picky and wacky eaters, to try new foods too. So we decided to launch the New Food Crew on our show’s website-each week we will pick a new food for kid to try. Then they can download a pdf and print it out and mark if they liked the food or not with a smiley or a frowny face.
Give it a try with your kids and let me know what they think.
