9 Healthy Recipes for your Picky Eater from weelicious.comPin

Over the years, how many meals have you made for your family? I’m sure every one was filled with love and effort. You meal plan, head to the market to buy the freshest ingredients and then cook with care, only to have your child make a “yuck” face when you place it in front of them and accompany it with words that make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside:

I don’t like it!”

What IS that?”

Gross! I’m not eating that!”

If any of this sounds familiar, you’ve come to the right place. These 9 healthy recipes are a good place for you to start spending less time in the kitchen and more time watching your kids actually eat the meals you make them.

Now, as readers of my first book, Weelicious: One Family. One Meal, know, I do not like the term picky eater. It’s a label that becomes a self fulfilling prophecy. When kids hear you refer to them as picky enough times, the reinforcement of that statement is absorbed by them to the point where they believe that they are picky and the resistance to trying new things only intensifies. There’s more to it than that, but I believe it’s a term best not put on kids. Instead be positive with new foods or things you want them eating and don’t stop the encouragement. It may take a painfully long time, but if you stick with it, things will change for the better.

Catherine is a mama of three. A Kentucky girl living in California. Here’s what I know: all kids can be great eaters and mealtime must be easy. I create simple, healthy recipes the whole family will love.


  1. I learned this trick at WIC. They taught me that providing a large mixed meal for kids is not fun. Children are picky, and us parents want them to eat. But I learned to stop yelling at him and just chop small mixes of fruits, veggies, cheese and other stuff makes eating for them fun. Gives them a choice to pick and choice. We ate the same kinds of food together. I just separated his food and cut them is small pieces. It works. It is a wonderful idea and when they get older, you can have them help cut them in smaller pieces and place them in their divided cup cake bowel.
