Toddlers are picky eaters: how to handle it

Your two-year-old seems be very particular with her food choices. Find out how to avoid battles while helping her overcome this stage.

Most two-year-olds are very picky eaters – parents often wonder how they survive at all. Your child is likely to be very sure about what she wants and when she wants it. For example:

  • She may be very particular about how food is arranged on her plate.
  • She may "binge" on favorite foods for a while, only to reject them later.

Don't worry if all your child will eat for a while is cereal – this pattern is normal and will pass. Avoid battles by preparing three meals and three snacks every day at pretty much the same times. Then let her eat what she wants.
