Are you a picky eater?

Picky eaters, children and adults can cause exasperation to people around. I have seen children who cringe at anything with color in them such as tomatoes, carrots, peppers, even apples and oranges. I also have a friend who eats out of soup cans and has nothing but chicken for almost every meal. She must have started out as a picky eater.

It is so difficult preparing meals for them or making sure that they get a balanced meal. The only solution to this is getting them involved in the preparation and cooking process. Most often you'd find that if they prepare a meal, they'll eat it. If you are dealing with young children another way around this would be to start a small vegetable garden and ask them to plant the vegetables they want. It can pay off in multiple ways. I am thinking chemisty, botany, nutrition, diet, exercise, cooking, cleaning, labor, art, taste and health, an all in one package.
