When It Comes to Picky Eating — The More You Stress, the Worse It Gets (with Amy Palanjian of Comfort Food Podcast)

Didn't I Just Feed You

In the last episode in our three-part series on picky eaters, we explored the topic from perspectives on two ends of the age spectrum: Amy Palanjian of Yummy Toddler Food spoke to us as about picky young ones while Debbie Koenig chimed in about older picky eaters. Does it get better? Does how we intervene when they are young improve our picky eaters as they grow up? We may never really know, but talking to each other helps. And maybe that’s what matters most: Helping each other so that we can all relax and let go a little.

S3E6 Tips for Feeding Toddlers with Amy Palanjian

MOMables Podcast

In today's episode, we discuss the toddler years when kids start getting more opinionated about what want to eat. We also cover things like what to do when a toddler won’t eat, some good snack options that are not super messy, thoughts of when they don't eat raw veggies, and more. If you have toddlers or young kids who are giving you a hard time when it comes to eating meals, this is one podcast you are not going to want to miss! Amy Palanjian of Yummy Toddler Food is a writer, editor, and recipe developer who lives with her 3 year old daughter and husband in a small town near Des Moines, Iowa. She is also expecting her second daughter this spring.  Amy started Yummy Toddler Food about a year ago as a place to share feeding tips and recipes with other families with toddlers. When her daughter turned 1, Amy felt like the rules for feeding her changed and she had a hard time finding advice and homemade foods that were appropriate for that age group. Amy also knew that the shift from having a baby at the table to having at toddler was a big one and that many families were dealing with sudden selectiveness, meal time drama, and general feeding frustration. She tries to provide reassurance and real-world tips on her site and related social media channels.
