Kids' Nutrition: Picky Eaters And More With Megan Wroe

Megan Wroe, MS, RD

Megan Wroe is a registered dietitian based in California specializing in Pediatric care. She became a dietitian after her sister was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes and later fell in love with pediatrics. She holds a Master of Science degree in Nutrition and Food Science from Cal Poly Pomona.

Megan talks about some of the common issues she sees with patients like:

  • Introducing infants to solid foods after 6 months
  • Obesity/ Overweight/ Underweight and failure to thrive
  • Food allergies and intolerances
  • Picky eating among kids (can be due to lack of knowledge or related to sensory disorders like autism)
  • Kids with GI issues like IBS, gluten intolerance, constipation, diarrhea and EOE 
  • Hormonal issues among teenage girls like PCOS

Megan Wroe helps young parents who don't know what to feed their babies. She talks about her approach to the above kids' issues, the critical window for food/sensory development and the best time to introduce new foods.

"My philosophy with kids is first of all that it starts with the parents. I do a lot of division of responsibility, teaching parents that if they provide balanced meals and have consistent meal time routines, then their kids will follow suit."

We also discuss:

  1. How parents influence their kids' taste buds and choice of food
  2. How to introduce new food through food chaining and food play
  3. Involving kids in meal planning, grocery shopping and meal preparation
  4. The influence of birth method (whether C-section or vaginal birth) to kids' picky eating.
  5. The importance of teaching kids what not to eat especially if they have certain conditions or allergies. Remind them which foods can cause certain effects like stomach aches and allergies they experienced earlier.
