It seems there is a Picky Eater in every family. I had one, an award winning one. I know the challenges of hearing kids say, “I don’t like it; I don’t want it; I won’t try it, NO.” Their lips tighten shut. They also gag and make “yucky, no way Hosea” faces. It may be because it is green, has a “funny” texture, the food is mixed (casserole), it’s not sweet – their reasons of refusal are endless and often creative.
Is this phrase, “Thumbs Up, No Yucks” music to your ears? If so, then this is the show for you. Stacey Antine, RD, founder of HealthBarn USA, wrote the Guide to Getting Your Kid to be a Great Eater. Her book is called Appetite for Life. Her goal is to have your kids eating fresh healthy foods while giving you a thumbs up with a smile. She is our Co-Host this week.
Our guests will be you, moms and dads of picky eaters! We are inviting you to call in with your questions and concerns. With Stacey’s exceptional success in turning Picky Eaters into willing ones, and mine with the Kid Kritics blind taste tests and moms who use our Kid Kritics Approved products and recipes, we have are steeped in resources to help you.
And, you can expect to hear some great recipe ideas your family will love including easy ones you can fix in a jiff, plus ones you can eat on the run!
Come into our Family Food Experts Kitchen on Thursday, May 2nd , 1pm ET, www.W4CY.com. Listen in while you are busy preparing or already enjoying your dinner. See you then!
… for the health of your family,

There’s no escaping trauma in the world today. Bombings, hurricanes, wars, domestic violence, gangs – it’s everywhere you can imagine. Witnessing or experiencing a traumatic event can put an individual at risk for Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, PTSD. Any real or perceived threat to oneself or another can trigger a traumatic response.
Once limited primarily to those returning from war, we now know that a child being bullied in school, a witness of a violent crime or a survivor of a natural disaster can all suffer the devastating effects of PTSD even years after the event has occurred.
Here are some warning signs to be aware of:
nightmares ~ hyper vigilance ~ panic attacks ~ avoidance of certain places, experiences, or situations
flashbacks ~ feeling emotionally numb ~ hopelessness about the future ~ memory problems ~ difficulty concentrating ~ relationship issues
These symptoms can be debilitating and seriously impact the quality of one’s life. But PTSD is curable and Dr. Perry uses many natural and spiritual modalities to achieve this. She recommends the following:
Reach out for support from friends, family, and support groups. Include counseling as a part of your treatment.
Hypnotherapy, guided meditation, Reiki, healing touch, and other energy modalities have all proven very effective.
Keeping a journal is very therapeutic as it allows one to identify and process many emotions that may otherwise lie suppressed within the mind.
EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is one of the newer and very promising methods of healing PTSD.
Whatever method you choose, know that one does not have to be held captive to a past experience, no matter how terrifying. Healing is possible. Everyone deserves to fully enjoy all the wonders of life.
