I was a picky eater as a child. This used to frustrate my mother enormously. She tried everything she could to get me to eat, it just didn't work. Worse, nowadays (50+ years later) I still feel sick/scared when someone brings me a plate of food I know I cannot finish just because of the stress my mother put me through. Just a few years ago I worked out why ...

I shall take you through what I do, this is a reasonably time consuming approach but i also have two ASD children (for a total of 7) so there are nine of us to feed each day. Plan a week's menu out ahead of time. Each day have two options; let the child pick from the two options before you go shopping, so you are buying the one they have decided on. If ...

This is a first world problem. You don't hear that children starve to death because they are picky eaters. Children want to eat what they like the most.

After all, your solution (salt less in the cooked food then individual ...

You've tried already to ask and your parents have said that they are willing to accommodate you, but they continue to salt according to their taste. I have two suggestions. Be specific about the amount of salt. So instead of "can you use less salt?", try something more like "can you use half the amount of salt that the recipe calls for?" Because maybe they ...

You're asking your parents to do something quite easy in theory, yet very difficult in practice: To cook the food in a way that tastes wrong to them. As you've discovered, salt and the enhanced flavors it gives are habit-forming. To your parents, "unsalted" food tastes bland and bad, simply because it doesn't meet their expectations of the flavors. When ...

You answer your own question in the prohibitions you put on the acceptable answers. If someone is doing something that you don't like there are only a few solution. Ask them to stop Do it yourself (cook for yourself or move out) Accept it There aren't really any other choices. What you need to do is work on #1 more. The only way to resolve an issue it ...

You can still give her PediaSure because this is the only product that she is into. And you said that this product let her grow and gave her a little weight. Just make sure, that this product she drinks does not give her some allergies. Why? Because people are always different in someways, sometimes a person can be good in some vitamins and some are not. ...
