To my one and only picky eater,

Lara Olivia N. De Guzman

Thank you for being an inspiration and for giving me the best job in the world.

I love you very much.

This handy cookbook perfectly marries the dual roles of many women—that of a caring mother and of a provider not just of food but of good health. Kudos to Tricel for helping as well as empowering moms who want nothing less for their kids.

the author


If you are reading this book, you may be one of four things:

You are a parent with a picky eater.

You know of another parent with a picky eater and is thinking of giving this book to that person.

You don’t have picky eaters (at least not right now) but thinks this book is interesting enough to try the recipes for your kids or family; or

You are a dear, supportive friend of mine.

This book came about because I am no stranger to picky eating. This was inspired by my very own picky and difficult to feed daughter.

Looking back...

From day one of weaning from breastmilk, my daughter (now 3 years old) had never liked food. Not the first solid food she ate (which was avocado), and not most of the food that I introduced after that. In fact, she didn’t enjoy eating at all. I honestly thought that there must be a part of her brain that didn’t recognize eating as pleasurable. It seemed like torture for her to eat (no exaggeration). Thus, I cut back on her feeding to once a day until she was about 10 months old. From 10 months old to 1 year, she was only eating twice a day. Most of it ended up in the trash. I can definitely say that this was the most frustrating experience in my life as a parent.

During her early toddler years, my child had learned the art of avoiding food:

She would whine endlessly and cry intermittently before accepting food in her mouth—like she was being punished.

When I try to combine food she already liked with new ones, she would sort it in her mouth and spit what she didn’t like.

Every time I tried to land a spoon in her mouth, she would automatically push my hand away like we were doing karate moves.

Friends and Internet resources all advised me not to worry, that children will eat when they get hungry; Or that kids know their bodies and will tell you when they’re hungry. Still, I would worry because my daughter didn’t seem to sense hunger cues. She could skip meals and go on for hours without asking for food. She was getting stick thin and was consistently losing weight for consecutive months. I was deeply worried she was probably not getting the proper nutrition her body needed. To make things worse, she was not a big milk drinker as well. Her milk intake fell short the ideal ounce needed per day.


To make the story short, this book came about because I got challenged. More importantly, because I realized that picky eating is a common problem. Yes, it is very common—just google picky eating and you’ll find a wealth of blogs, resource articles, recipe ideas for picky eaters. Consider yourself very lucky if you don’t have a picky eater. At least not just yet. But tables might turn later on. And yes, I consider it a problem when the child is not gaining weight or getting the proper nutrition as he or she should at a critical age when his or her body should be growing exponentially.

I love to cook so I made it a mission to be creative in my recipes and experiment on food combinations that my child might accept. Luckily, my daughter already likes most fruits and oatmeal. So I had something to start with. That is why a lot of the recipes in this book have fruits in them. Now, I am sharing these
