9: What Age Does Picky Eating Get Better?
447

If you’re in the thick of picky eating, you’re probably wondering when you can expect it to get better.


You might even be dreaming of the day where you can make whatever you want for dinner, or you could take your little one to any restaurant, or even to a friend’s house for a meal when you don’t know what they’ll be serving. 


If this feels far off, listen to this episode to hear what age picky eating tends to improve, and take a simple quiz to determine whether your little one is likely to just grow out of it, or if they will need some extra help.


Take it from me, a pediatric Registered Dietitian Nutritionist who has worked with hundreds of toddler families struggling with picky eating!
