Books for Picky Eaters

Have a picky eater in your house (or on your gift list)? Nagging or coercing probably won’t work to expand their palate – but a fun book about food just might. Here’s a list of some of our favorite books geared toward (and about) picky eaters:

Green Eggs and Ham: The definitive book on what happens when you give something a “try.”Ages 2-6.

Bread and Jam for Frances: What would happen if you just ate bread and jam forever? A classic. Ages 3-8.

D. W. The Picky Eater: A special dinner gives a picky eater incentive to try something new. Ages 4-7.

I Will Never, Not Ever, Eat a Tomato: Can you be really sure on that? A Charlie and Lola book. Ages 3-8.

The Seven Silly Eaters: Seven kids, each with a special food demand. Ages 4-8.

Luck of the Loch Ness Monster: A Tale of Picky Eating. Could oatmeal thrown overboard a ship cause a creature to grow into the Loch Ness Monster? Ages 6-10.

Horrid Henry’s Underpants: Henry makes a deal with his parents in return for eating his veggies. Ages 6-10.

R.L. Stine’s The Boy Who Ate Fear Street: A former picky eater eats a strange spice that makes him start to eat everything in sight. Ages 9-13.

So give a few of these a try. At the end of the holiday season, even if they’re not eating, at least they’ll be … reading.
