Picky Eaters Directory

Between 20% to 50% of babies are described by their parents as picky eaters: They push away food, turn their heads away when a spoon approaches, spit out food, and become cranky at mealtime. If the baby's rate of growth is normal, there is usually no need to worry. Some babies are full, distracted, teething, or otherwise not feeling well. Older babies may need some control in the high chair.
