Why are so many kids picky eaters?  And what is a parent to do about it?

Dr. Natalie Muth, a pediatrician and author of Eat Your Vegetables! and Other Mistakes Parents Make: Redefining How to Raise Healthy Eaters.

KCBS news had Dr. Muth on their show to share her step-by-step plan to help kids embrace fruits, vegetables and other healthful foods without battles, bribes and coercion. These strategies, featured in her book, are tailored to a child’s age and development level, are based on scientifically proven research and are accompanied by real-life anecdotes and expert advice. Each chapter is followed by simple, kid-friendly recipes developed by Dr. Mary Saph Tanaka, a pediatric resident at UCLA and a talented amateur chef, which help parents turn the information contained within the chapters into action — starting with the next meal or snack.
