Health Tip: Getting Toddlers to Try New Foods

(HealthDay News) -- Getting toddlers to try new foods may seem like an uphill battle.

But experts say parents mustn't give up. The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics suggests:

  • The foods you eat may affect the taste of your breast milk. So if you breast-feed, eat a variety of foods.

  • For both you and your child, minimize salt and skip spicy flavors, such as hot sauce or cayenne pepper.

  • If your child doesn't like a food at first, keep offering it. Your child may eventually grow to like it.
