Are chicken nuggets and crackers at the top of your child's list of favorite foods?
Parents of picky eaters are always looking for ideas of fruits, vegetables, and proteins that their kids will actually eat. Sometimes it’s not the taste of these foods that keep kids away. Instead, it can be the texture.
