Coleslaw may not seem to be a great fussy eater food at first glance. However, there are often ways we can take something and make it more appealing.
Mixing different foods together is frequently challenging for selective eaters. Although working on mixing is important, if we are introducing new foods or concepts, then separating things can make it easier.
Carrots are often okay for picky eaters. Cabbage although not regularly eaten ticks a lot of boxes. It’s very neutrally flavoured, it’s crunchy and it doesn’t mush in the mouth.
If cabbage is one step too far at the moment, apple can be another option. Grated or chopped apple gives sweetness and is often a more familiar food.
