Publisher's Summary

Have you ever looked at your picky eater and wondered, “Will they ever grow out of this?" Then, you need to keep listening....

For more than 29 years, I was an extremely picky eater. My parents were told, year after year, I would just “grow out of it”.

Except, I didn’t.

I remember when I was little, sitting at the kitchen table with my Mom, who would say, “Please just take one little bite!” I so badly wanted to, but I just couldn’t, and both of us wound up so frustrated and upset.

My extremely picky eating was not identified for what it was, and so, it got worse as I got older, instead of better.

That is...until I finally discovered how to overcome my picky eating, and am thrilled to say I can now eat anything and everything!

That’s why I wrote this book. To help you and your picky eater, even if you’ve tried everything you could think of to get your child to try new foods.

Inside this audiobook, you'll discover:

  • Why some children don't grow out of their picky eating on their own
  • A scientifically backed approach picky eaters can start using, regardless of age
  • The surprising first step to help picky eaters try new foods (Hint: It is not “just take a bite”.)
  • How you can remove the stress around mealtime and have fun with food
  • How to avoid the biggest mistakes that will only make things worse
  • And much more...

Even if you’ve gone to doctor after doctor and feel like you tried everything imaginable with your picky eater, it is still possible. I thought I was the pickiest eater in the world and that I was doomed to be a picky eater for the rest of my life.

If you were to ask me, "Do you eat ...?", most likely my answer was, "No". No bacon, no burgers, no chicken, no fish, no shrimp, no veggies, no salads, no eggs, no pasta, no rice, etc.

If I can do it, your picky eater can, too.

If you want to help your child overcome their picky eating and save years of trying to figure it out on your own, then click the “buy now” button.

Must read for toddler moms

This book is not for extremely picky eaters only. It’s also enlightening for new mothers of young kids who need guidance on how to expose kids to new foods (and cooking) from a young age, so they can have a healthy relationship with food. Hearing the perspective from a person who grew up as a picky eater (with science backing it) is extremely helpful and eye opening. Thanks Jessica for sharing your experience!

Very thorough and easy to follow!

I'm so grateful I found this audiobook!! The narrator provides a ton of information that I did not receive when I took my picky eater to the doctor. I had no idea what to do or how to do it until listening to this book. I especially loved the chapter about being a mom of a picky eater, and I can totally relate to the guilt and stress that parents feel. I highly recommend this audiobook to anyone with a picky eater in their family.

My savior!

Among my friends, I am always considered as the ultimate picky eater. I don't eat seafood, spicy, pickles in burgers and much other food. It makes me a little embarrassed when eating with other families. This book helped me a lot! I took some strategies in this book and finally would give it a try for much food that I couldn't accept. They were not as horrible as I had thought. Now I can't say I am not picky, but I do make a big improvement in eating! Highly recommended!

Helpful and Informative

I have two kiddos, and really don't want them to grow up to be picky. It can be difficult as a parent to introduce new or what appear to be "exotic" foods, and this book has been a fantastic listen! I feel a renewed sense of hope about this and am already looking forward to less stress around dinner time. Thank you, Jessica!

Great help for my family

I am totally the opposite of a picky eater, but somehow my little kid is. Even though maybe not too extreme, but oftentimes it can get difficult. But lucky I stumbled across this book. Jessica did a wonderful job with this book and I got so many insights and powerful tips to overcome this problem, This book is a great help for my family and should be your go-to reference about overcoming "picky eater".

A life-changing audiobook for a picky eater

Thank you, Jessica! I identified with this book so much, as I'm a picky eater who never seemed to grow out of it either. I thought it was great that the story related to your experiences, many of which I have shared over the years as well. I'm happy that I came across this audiobook because it's something that I've always wanted to change--knowing that I'm lacking in nutrients and missing out on some amazing food. I'm excited to start this journey of exploration all thanks to you (baby steps of course)! Also, I loved the recipes thrown in as well! The potato pancakes are delicious! P.S. Great job by the narrator as well :)

Great information

One of my sons is a very picky eater, his nickname is "Fusspot Lou". He's still growing but I can see he's too thin and was actually LESS picky when he was younger. This book is giving me lots of hope that we can work through this. He's at an age where he knows he needs to do something about it, but just talking at him makes no difference. Am eager to try what this book recommends!

I really enjoyed the narration of the audiobook and found the content to be highly engaging. I would certainly recommend this audiobook to others.

Excellent book for long term 'picky eater'

This is an excellent book. I had no idea picky eating was a phenomena which was only just properly recorded as a medical disorder of eating. It also answers a lot of questions about members of my own family who do seem to have this issue although to a much lesser extent. I also loved the potato recipes! This is an inspiring journey of one woman determined to help herself be free of this issue and learn to eat normally and enjoy her food again. It is informative, interesting and backed up by research - a lot of it! Well worth the investment, especially if you have this disorder.

A great helper!

I am glad this audio is out. There is not so many books and audios on this issues and many people tend to look the treatment of picky eating habit down! Although I am not a picky eater, I do really know a lot of people in this situation. I wondered whether they would ever change. At least listening to this audio enriched my knowledge and made me more aware! The author is talking about herself and sharing great experience, tips and advise; and this is really helpful since it shows a common journey. 32 amazing chapters and 6 hours to completely transform yourself and escape this vicious circle, I find it amazing and highly recommend it.

A practical and systematic approach that works.

Brilliant approach to dealing with those picky eaters in the household, whether young or old. I’ve found it to be a struggle to get the little ones to accept and enjoy what has been placed on their plates. This audiobook has a systematic approach to getting those picky eaters to tantalize their tastebuds more. Highly recommended listen for parents struggling to get their children to eat – and eat properly.
