The Connection Between Breast Milk and Picky Eating

Did you know- “Children breastfed exclusively for their first six months were 81 percent less likely as preschoolers to reject food, 78 percent less likely to develop a preference for specific food-preparation methods, and 75 percent less likely to develop food neophobia - the fear of trying new foods”- Juhee Kim, University of Illinois (2012 research study).

Breast milk, whether the child latches directly on the breast or the mother pumps the milk and feeds the child with a bottle, is made of so many amazing nutrients. Serving up breast milk is a proactive way to reduce picky eating.

Is your toddler already a picky eater? No sweat! There are many resources to help you find the melody in mealtime!
