If a child restricts their preferred food choices to a limited number of foods then they always know what they will be eating, mom/dad never run out of this food and maybe even give it on demand since they are very concerned about the child’s limited diet ~ now there is a plan, meals are more predictable.
In time the list of preferred foods may change but still remain limited so the child remains in control of a more predictable environment. Take a look at this list of foods http://www.theeatinggame.ca/suggested_foods.pdf and write down all the foods your child has eaten in their lifetime. Add any others you think of that are not on this list. Wouldn’t it be nice if they would be eating all these foods now, extending their preferred list? This might be hard to control though. You need a plan………………….
