An Unfortunate and Lengthy Adventure in Misdiagnosis

Picky eaters

How lovely – someone actually emailed me something nice today:

Your article was amazing to me… until I read it, I thought that my 8 yr old son was the only child in the world that was that picky. He will actually dry heave at the sight or smell or feel of many foods in his mouth. Thank you for helping me to understand how he feels. I, like your Mum worry about his eating habits. You are the first person who has ever understood his eating. Thank you!!!

As you might imagine one or two people (for whom vegetables are a veritable religion), had a rather violent negative reaction to the contents of “why kids don’t eat their greens“, which seemed quite an innocent article to me when I wrote it. I’m glad it’s finally struck home for a mother like mine, who is just trying to feed her child well.
