picky-eaters-club-mommy-shorts-more-46c45The submissions for the Picky Eaters Club have been pouring in, so much so that we might have to open several different chapters.

There will be the “French Fries are a Vegetable” chapter, the “No Crusts” chapter and the “Cheese is Only Acceptable on Pizza” chapter, which will be the LARGEST chapter by far.

There will also be a chapter for older kids who continue their picky eating shenanigans well past toddlerhood with even more annoying specifics, due to an increasingly better vocabulary.

One mom reports that her nine-year-old son “starts asking what’s for dinner at around 4:30pm so he can plan out his argument against eating it way ahead of time”.

Uh-oh. That sounds scary.

Let’s hope the picky eating issues of these 35 new inductees disappear well before they start law school…

picky-eaters-club-mommy-shorts-more-46c41The Picky Eaters Club is not just about support, it is also about survival. That’s why I am giving two more randomly-selected members $100 worth of products from Ella’s Kitchen®.

Ella’s Kitchen® is most well known for their pouches but also makes finger foods, toddler meals and now nutritional supplement drinks— Organic Coconut Water Electrolyte* Drinks and Coconut + Milk Nutritional Shakes. Both great ways for picky eaters to get some of the nutrients they’ve been missing out on when they reject all those healthy veggies.

The winners are…

If you’d still like your child to be inducted, post his/her picture on the Mommy Shorts Facebook page (or on instagram hashtagging #pickyeatersclub and tagging @mommyshorts) with their first name and specific food hang-up in the caption.
