If your child is a fussy eater it's important to curb those habits at as young an age as possible. The longer you allow poor habits to continue, the harder it will be to break them as your child grows older.
Often parents complain that they've tried everything to break their mini fussy eater, but the key to success is consistency and persistence.
Follow these 7 steps to get your child eating a balanced and nutritious diet, with a few treats thrown in along the way.

Although Mother Nature delivered a surprise foot of snow here in Boston last week, the calendar says March and the temperatures the last few days have been in the 50's. Maybe I am being an optimist, but I have a feeling that Spring is about to arrive. As I talked about when Fall brought in colder, drier weather, the changing seasons are a great time to review your skin care routine and make changes due to the drastic seasonal weather changes we see here in New England. It is spring cleaning for your skin care!
Update Your Moisturizer
As the cold, dry air goes away, you may no longer need that heavy-duty moisturizer. Think about switching to a moisturizer with a lower lipid content that will still keep your skin nice and hydrated without making you feel greasy. If you have oily skin, look for a moisturizer with a matte finish (like skoah's face skotion). Look at your cleanser as well. If you have been using a creamy cleanser all winter and have combination skin, think about making a switch to a gel based cleanser (like skoah's gel kleanser) for the warmer months. As with any cleanser (face, body or hair), look for products that are Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS) free.
On my first day at skoah I learned that my own core values strongly aligned with the core values of the company. One of my favourites is the emphasis on goal setting – something I never start a New Year without. What was even better was that they added the word ‘passionately’ – this, I thought, was exactly how I wanted to live my life, with purpose and passion.
Having always been an avid volunteer with VANCOUVER+acumen, Special Olympics and YWiB, I had often wondered if working in the non-profit sector was a passion or a hobby. When I add in the goal I set in grade 11 to work abroad, I developed a combined goal to explore living abroad and work for a non-profit.
This is how it appeared on my Goal Setting Board: “I will have lived in a developing country, working for a non-profit organization, for 6-months”
What was missing was the “by when”. I wrestled with this for a long time. I loved what I was doing at skoah. I even wrote a previous post on learning to love what I do. It was when I realized that my goal wasn’t about what I was doing, enjoying, or experiencing now, my goal was about the experiences I wanted to have, that I had to face a tough decision.
We've taken a closer look at our blog content and we've come to the conclusion that we are far too self-centred. I suppose our passion for skin care and people are the reason why we have been posting our content ourselves. But we've decided to open up the conversation and invite contributors to join us. If we like your post, or rather we think our community will like your post, we will add it to our blog with a big shout out to you. Now to be clear, we are not only looking for blogs about our products or your experiences at skoah - we are looking to be inspired, to learn and to share. Below are some topics we'd love to see written about:
- business tips and advice
- architecture & design
- controversial topics
- family activities
