My second child would be considered picky by most parents. I believe he just needs more practice with food. After all, he was not born counting to 100 and naming all of the barnyard animals. That too takes practice.
He is three and turns his nose up to anything with a leaf; a green, purple, yellow or red color; and a bumpy or gritty texture. Hell, I will just admit it- he refuses new food unless it is chocolate flavor. Just today he refused a cut up fresh peach but would have devoured it, if the peach was left untouched. Why? – because it is different. A cut up fresh peach is unchartered territory compared to whole or canned peaches.
I refuse to call him picky and with that comes exciting new ways to introduce the same foods in different ways. I call it teaching taste or flavor preference. My patience and ability to re-introduce the same food to him in different ways has paid off. He now will request a second and even third helping of salad.
The idea of providing variety is not limited to serving new foods, but offering the same foods different ways. If a child does not like diced pineapple one day, it does not mean the child dislikes pineapple all together. Rethink the pineapple. In other words, the next time you serve the juicy fruit prepare it with a different texture or shape. Pineapples can be mashed, frozen on a stick, diced, cut into shapes, grilled, sliced or cut into long spears. As the child becomes familiar to the food through multiple exposures, the child will be more apt to try it and accept it.
