My daughter goes through phases of being super picky where pasta usually rules our dinnertime rountine to being open to trying new foods like when she ate a handful of raw kale!?! I try not to "freak out" about her carb loving ways, since she is, after all, only four and palates change. I do want to encourage her to get excited about new food, specifically healthy food, so I take to various blogs to get inspired and try test out new recipes. Here are some of my favorite blogs that cater to the infamous picky eater.
BabyBites. Created by Nonna Joann Bruso, this blog isn't neccessarily focused on recipes, but includes a comprehensive list of resources and articles covering topics like how to transform a picky eater to articles on how play can transform mealtime conflict into an enjoyable multi-sensory experiences.

In Erika's Kitchen. As a mom who really makes a little bit of everything, I look to her blog to get new ideas for bean dishes, beef, fish and breakfast ideas.
