Welcome back to the second half of our interview with Jennifer Scribner, author of From Mac & Cheese to Veggies, Please: How to get your kid to eat new foods, end picky eating forever, and stay sane in the process!In the first half, we discussed Jennifer's own challenges as a picky adult and her top 3 strategies for getting kids eating.

In today's episode, I put her on the spot on how to use those strategies to get real food into some of the pickiest eaters I've known; including a boy who defiantly tried to starve himself instead of eating dinner, and another whose diet is little more than white bread, Cheerios, peanut butter and white rice with nothing on it.

What happens when you have a kid and then realize that diet has everything to do with their health and well-being? Improving your diet can be a challenge, but changing the diet of your picky eater can be torture…. until you hear today’s guest. Jennifer Scribner has been working with families affected by autism spectrum disorders. And in case you didn’t know, children on the spectrum (and many adults) are the fussiest eaters around. In her new book, From Mac & Cheese to Veggies, Please: How to get your kid to eat new foods, end picky eating forever, and stay sane in the process! she teaches parents how to navigate the turbulent waters of implementing a nutritious diet for children who refuse to eat anything but white flour and sugar. In this episode, she tells us why children get picky in the first place and her 3 top strategies that parents can use to turn that around.

Don't forget to listen to the second half of this interview when Jennifer is put to the test when Adrienne presents her with real life examples of some of the pickiest eaters she's known.
