Last week the Motherlode blog post about picky eaters got well over 200 comments. Obviously a sore spot and matter of concern at dinner tables across the country. The post was written by Stephanie V. W. Lucianovic, a self-proclaimed childhood picky eater turned food-writer and author of the book SUFFERING SUCCOTASH; A Picky Eater’s Quest to Understand Why We Hate the Foods We Hate, published by Perigee Publishing, the same publisher who will be putting out my Slow Family Living book next March!

The book delves into the plight of the picky eater. Lucianovic takes her questions into labs and the inner sanctums of feeding clinics. She interviews “fellow picky eaters and adventurous foodies young and old.” ¬†And attempts to answer what it means to be a picky eater and what we can do about it.

It’s part memoir, part scientific analysis, and in whole a good read for anyone who as either uttered or heard the phrase, “Three more bites and you’re done.”

I’ll be giving a copy of this book away next week and will pick a winner on Tuesday, July 17th. If you’d like to be entered in the drawing, just leave a comment about your own picky eating days as a child or about your days of parenting a picky eater.
