If you have young children, or even older children who used to be young, then you know that kids can and will be picky eaters. If it looks funny, smells funny, or is the wrong color, odds are it won’t be eaten tasted or tried. Wait…describes me now….
Fortunately my parents don’t have to worry about what to feed me, but for those of us who still have to try to convince kids to eat their vegetables and other “what’s that” foods, we’ve had to become creative, and dare I say, sneaky, in order to make sure the kids eat a healthy, balanced diet.
If you have a great “nugget” of wisdom for how you get your picky eaters to stop saying “no!” and start saying yes to new foods, then you could win a $5,000 savings bond in the Tyson’s Tell Us Your Little Nugget contest. Along with nutrition expert and mom Robin Miller, Tyson’s is working to share the mealtime nuggets that we’ve tried and succeeded.

Tell Us Your Little Nugget
Most moms have tried almost everything to get their kids to stop saying “no!” to the new or unfamiliar foods on their plates. Once moms find that “nugget” of mealtime wisdom that gets their fussy eaters to try new foods and help build a foundation of balanced nutrition, they often want to pass this valuable information along to other moms.
To encourage moms to share their own “nugget” of mealtime wisdom, Tyson is launching the “Tell Us Your Little Nugget” program at www.yourlittlenugget.com for a chance to win great prizes. Simply submit your “nugget” of mealtime wisdom, which can include any tip that has pleased the young, picky eaters in your household while building the fundamentals of balanced nutrition.
I’m going to share my nugget right now – which is to use sweet and sour sauce for dipping. It can be used on virtually any food and the dipping experience really engages the kids.
