Question #1. My 4 year old is a very picky eater. Meals are very stressful at home. He tantrums when we serve food that he doesn’t like and there are many times when he doesn’t eat anything at all. He usually only wants to eat junk food, crackers and bread. Everyone keeps telling me that all kids go through a phase of being picky eaters and that this will pass. But it feels like it keeps getting worse. Should I be concerned?

Question #2.Do you have any suggestions to encourage my child to try new foods? He always wants to eat the exact same foods at every meal.
