How you talk to your young child can have a significant impact on how he will communicate with people later in life.

Is your child unwilling to taste a new food? A picky eater often has to be exposed to something new as many as 15 times before even tasting it! Children trust familiar things in their lives and are often suspicious of something new and different – this applies to food too. A food that has an unusual appearance, color, smell or texture can be off-putting to a young child. That's why repeated exposure helps. Eventually the unusual food becomes familiar, and at that point, your child becomes open to the idea of tasting it and giving it a fair evaluation. Knowing these facts gives us insight into how to introduce new foods and what to expect when we do.
