Food Network's Jeff Mauro Shares Tips & Recipes for Picky Eaters

1. The More They Cook, They More They’ll Try
"A guaranteed way to get kids to try new things is by getting them involved. It can be as easy as cracking eggs, pouring juice for a sauce or grating cheese on taco night. For my son, Lorenzo, we let him help us 'fire ingredients in a pan.' If we’re having rib eye steak for dinner, he loves to help flip it in the pan or sauté the veggies. Once kids help create a dish, they establish a deeper connection to the food and will most definitely want to try what they’ve created," he said.
