But lots of experts swear by presenting new foods in a fun way for kids so that they’re more encouraged to try them. Cut them into fun shapes, add a dip, or let them choose their own toppings — try something new to get them to at least touch a green bean.
Give your kid a whole bunch of different dips, and then something you want them to try, like veggie strips or a protein or whatever. If they can dip it themselves and try out new flavors, they may find a combo they like. (And they’ll feel in control.)
Tiny containers or silicone baking cups can make a little tiny kid smorgasbord and turn into a fun snack. Feeding Littles suggested that kids might even use the containers to pour or move their snacks around and, hopefully, try them.
