This week’s Tuesday Tip for Picky Eaters: Helping with the Harvest.Henry loves berries, with one big caveat -- he loves fresh picked berries. He will devour handfuls of strawberries, blueberries and raspberries if they are directly off the vine. Henry is much more fickle about eating berries when we have a meal at the table and sometimes won't even consider berries when they are cold from the refrigerator. But when we harvest berries from our yard, then he just keeps signing for more, more, more!

It's also a reminder not to make assumptions that your child doesn't like a certain food. Being in a new environment may encourage your child to try something different. Try having a picnic and see if your child just might take a bite!
