Every parent has an arsenal of "tools" they like to rely on in the event they need a little extra assistance during the more difficult legs of their parental journey. Difficult sleepers need special songs and books and even a nightlight that makes them feel more comfortable before nodding off. Kids who are working on potty training require fun undies, encouraging songs, and books about toilet readiness. And picky eaters need a little extra assistance at mealtimes. That's why these fun ways to encourage your kid to try new foods are kind of amazing.
Whether you want to lean on trusty Daniel Tiger (is there a childhood milestone that fuzzy guy can't help with?) or purchase a few fun items for the kitchen that will make food preparation and eating that much more fun, chances are likely you are bound to find something that can add a little pizazz to your child's mealtime experience. Oh, and who doesn't love a solid book to help you do the work of navigating tricky conversations?
Because, really, not one of us can successfully go at this parenting thing without a little help from our friends, whether it's found in your BFF, the pages of a book, or that lovable tiger with a song for all occasions. And you wouldn't want to do this solo anyway, right?
