IDEA contributing editor Natalie Digate Muth, MD, MPH, RDN, FAAP, and Sally Sampson, founder of ChopChop Kids, offer a healthy, delicious road map for transforming picky eaters into fledgling foodies. Their new book, The Picky Eater Project: 6 Weeks to Happier, Healthier Family Meal Times, lays out a 6-week plan and 40 family-friendly recipes to help children become more adventurous, healthier eaters. The plan focuses on kids’ participation, kitchen experiments and good nutrition, and will help parents set goals and measure progress toward defeating picky eating.

Don’t limit yourself to the usual, or even to what is suggested here. Aim to balance protein and vegetables, textures and tastes, plus vibrant colors and you’ll produce a sandwich that satisfies both flavor and energy requirements. And be sure to get the kids involved. Their investment in the process of choosing ingredients and creating the sandwich can make a huge difference.
