When I made dinner for the family, I would make him his own meal of the only foods he would eat without complaining. If we went to a restaurant, it had to have pizza or mac-and-cheese on the kids’ menu, or I would have to bring in food for him because he wouldn’t touch anything else.

Back then, I knew nothing about Real Food, and even my husband and I would have been considered picky — especially compared to all the variety we eat now! When we slowly began changing the way we ate, our son was definitely not on board with the changes. It took me a solid couple of years to break some bad habits (both in myself and in my children). Now, BOTH of my children are excellent eaters!
