what to do with a picky eater

Avery is undoubtedly a picky eater.  Here's some advice I've been reading by Ellyn Satter and Mark Bittman, in case anyone else has a choosy eater on their hands!  Here are some nice articles on my favorite Canadian food blog as well:

The OT/PT that taught Logan's development classes told us parents to engage our kids in a lot of activities that gets their hands messy and exposed to a wide range of sensations. They said sometimes kids are picky eaters because they don't like the textures of foods and it helps to expose them to a lot of play dough time, shaving-cream painting, rice-digging, and sand sculpting, etc. Logan can be a bit of a clean freak sometimes, mostly when it comes to sand on his feet but he LOVES finger-painting on our counter with shaving cream, as does Audrey. We missed a play date once where they were going to strip the kids down to their underwear and aprons let them fingerpaint and body paint with "jello paint." Sounded like fun.
