    I just finished this book, and having pickiest boy in the world, it did speak to me on many levels.

    Alright, when I get back I'm going to check this book out. My kid isn't particularly picky, but oh I have issues about food. Okay, I have issues.

    Alexa, did you find that reading it helped *you*? That's my takeaway so far. I don't expect that Harry will be eating a wider variety of food starting tomorrow, but hopefully I'll be able to calm down about it.

    Gnocchi, I have issues too. My list of dislikes is embarrassingly long for a food writer.

    I just read it too, and I loved it! I'm pretty excited about when Titus gets old enough to eat. And I've ordered Child Of Mine, too. 🙂

    I appreciate this, because my mom is slightly obsessive about my kids' eating habits. She's our regular babysitter, so I hear it from her all the time about how well they are or aren't eating. Maybe a few choice snippets from the book would help her relax (and thereby make *my* life easier!).

    Anne, Titus will be old enough before you know it! (And can I just say again how impressed I am at your continued blogging w/infant? I couldn't do it. Too many balls in the air, and I sure didn't want to drop the one named Harry.)

    Wordy, if I were you I'd show your mom the chapter I mentioned, Picky-Picky. It went a looong way towards easing my concerns.

    Oh, it definitely helped out my issues, more than Gideon's food issues. I worry alot less now, and am satisfied if he doesn't eat the food that we eat at home, but at least eats SOMETHING. He is only 2 1/2, after all.

    My kids are now 17 and 11 and they do eventually try other things. It seems like it takes forever, but my 17 year will try just about anything – as long as the foods do not touch on her plate!

    Martha, Harry's the same way about the food not touching! I assumed he'd outgrow that, but maybe not 😉
