Books for Picky Eaters

Have a picky eater in your house (or on your gift list)? These books for picky eaters are meant for them. As you have probably realized already, nagging or coercing won’t work to expand their palate. But a fun book about food just might. Therefore, we give you a list of some of our favorite books geared toward (and about) picky eaters (click on each photo to get to the link):

Green Eggs and Ham: Here’s the definitive book on what happens when you give something a “try.” It’s fun to read, and to read along. However, just remember that your kid may want to try *actual* green eggs and ham afterwards. Ages 2-6.

Bread and Jam for Frances: What would happen if you just ate bread and jam forever? We feel for Frances, who just loves her bread and jam. 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? Charlie and Lola are such an adorable duo. First, read all about Lola’s anti-tomato antics. Next, you’re going to want to read the whole series. Ages 3-8.

The Seven Silly Eaters: Seven kids, and each has a special food demand. First of all, that premise alone is stressful. Furthermore, how long is *that* going to last? Ages 4-8.

Books for Ages 6 and Up

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? We love the fact that someone even raised this question. Ages 6-10.

Hamburger Heaven: The customers at Hamburger Heaven are growing tired of the same old cheeseburgers. It’s up to plucky Pinky to come up with a new menu that will generate more interest and more customers.


Horrid Henry’s Underpants: Henry makes a deal with his parents in return for eating his veggies. Again, once you get into Horrid Henry, you’ll probably wind up reading the whole series. 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.

We hope you enjoy these books for picky eaters. And remember, after they get through all of these books, even if they’re not eating, at least they’ll be … reading.
