    Ask An Expert: How To Give Your Picky Eater More Healthy Foods

    Chef Kashia has been doing food features for CBS Connecticut News for the past two years. She was asked to give some tips on how to get picky eater to try healthier foods.

    “Chef, yuckkkkk. Dis-gus-ting. Totally gross! “ That, says Chef Kashia Cave of My City Kitchen in Meriden, is how a just a few of the elementary school students in her class reacted after a cheese tasting. “I couldn’t believe my eyes,” she continues. “They began running out the kitchen pushing each other trying to get to the bathroom because they wanted to (a) throw up, (b) brush their teeth with their fingers, and (c) drink water to get the taste out.” As if that wasn’t a bad enough of a reaction to her effort to get these kids to try healthy, different foods, she also heard one student cry out “Goat cheese, like a goat? Goat cheese? NEVER again in my entire life would I eat that nasty thing.” And that, she says, was just the beginning of her quest to figure out “How do I get my students to eat different foods, without them making an exodus to the bathroom?”
