I feel like I have one of the pickiest eaters in the entire world sometimes. My seven year old would literally live on sting cheese, lollipops and goldfish crackers if I would let him. Seriously.  I honestly have no idea how he sustains himself sometimes because his eating is so erratic and unhealthy.  Not long ago I posted some of my best tips for dealing with picky eaters, but recently a new tool has come to my attention and I wanted to share it with you today.

It’s called the Pica Food App!

  1. Definitely may need to look into for my picky eater. Although, recently she has been eating more here, but still a bit fussy about what it is she wants to eat. Thanks for sharing!

  2. That does sound like a good app to look into for my picky eater too. He thinks he’s branching out and trying new things if he eats the non-marshmallow choices in his cereal. 😉

  3. I love how they have apps for pretty much everything! I am actually expecting our first baby now so I am sure I will experience the picky eating!

  4. This sounds like a very cool app.. people with younger kids should really get into this.

  5. Mom to a picky eater, here! We have lots of success with making him TRY a bite before he gets down.. he doesn’t have to finish it, but he has to try it!

  6. This is such a great idea for kids that are picky eaters. My daughter is the opposite, she will try anything at least once.

  7. Cute app! When my oldest was little we introduced “no thank you tastes” so she has to at least try it before she can decide that she doesn’t want it. Over time she grew to love whatever we were trying to get her to eat. win win in my book. The other three thankfully aren’t picky eaters and will eat stuff most adults won’t even try! LOL!

    • My kids had to try at least one new food every week. They were picky for a while but they grew up to be adventurous eaters!

  8. OMG, I wish there had been smart phones and tablets when my kids were little. They were TERRIBLY picky eaters.

  9. This is such a great idea. If you have a picky eater, it’s EXTREMELY difficult to get them to eat. Thanks so much for sharing this.

  10. That’s cool! Kids learn so many things from apps, I really can see this helping. Thanks for sharing about it.

  11. What a cute app. I could have used this about five years ago with my picky eaters!

  15. I have a friend who could definitely use this. Her kids are the pickiest eaters I’ve ever seen!

  16. With my daughter I basically put my foot down and said she HAD to try certain foods. It worked! She loves vegetables now and will try almost everything.

  17. Cute app! I remember when I was a kid, my mom made food and I stayed at the table til I ate it

  18. I love this idea so much. I never had any problems with my kids and eating, but I have a girlfriend who had a terrible time with her kids.

  19. I don’t have picky eaters fortunately but hope this app will help those who do have them.

  20. What a cool app for kids. My daughter is a picky eater and this will help her a lot

  21. One of my nephews is a super picky eater! I need to pass this on to my sister to help her in getting him to eat. His favorite thing to say now when he doesn’t want to eat is to say ‘I’m allergic to that.’ – Katy

  22. What a great sounding app – my other half is a picky eater wonder if it would work on him. x

  23. My kids aren’t picky but its a nice app for those parents with picky eater kids. It seems like there’s an app for everything these days.

  24. My children were all pretty good eaters, but I have friends with kids that could benefit from this app.

  25. That does sound great for picky eaters. I generally don’t have a problem with picky eaters. I have a problem with them eating too much. They stay skinny, so I guess I have nothing to worry about. Sometimes if they want something sweet I make them eat a veggie before they get what they want.

  26. This looks like a really interesting app. I am blessed both of my girls are really good eaters.

  27. The voice recording option sounds so cool. What a fun way for kids to learn about healthy foods.

  41. This is such a neat thing to have. Way better than fighting at the dinner table!

  42. This app sounds absolutely wonderful. I have who of the world’s pickiest eaters.

  43. I wonder sometimes if my parenting style is the problem with my picky eater. She’s the older of my two, and often wants something different than we’re eating. My son (younger) will try absolutely anything and usually likes it.

  44. Mine are a bit too old for this app, I think. I really wish it would have been around when they were a little smaller. They are the worst at trying new foods!

  45. Very cool app – might need one for my hubby – he only eats healthy when he has to! – lol – my son and I were never picky eaters

  46. This does seem like a very helpful app. The name kind of intrigues me since I’ve always known PICA as something completely different.

  55. This sounds like a great tool, although I just don’t understand the whole picky eating thing.

  56. This is seriously such a cute app for kids and such a helpful app for parents with picky eaters!

  57. Sounds like a fun and informative app. My kids are beyond needing anything like this as my youngest is 14 and eats anything and everything he can get his hands on.

  58. My toddler is now a picky eater. She used to eat so much more. I will have to look into this app for her.

  59. This would be great for my toddler. We’re having a tough time with veggies

  60. This sounds absolutely perfect for my suddenly picky 2 year old! He thinks he can live on cheese crackers and cereal right now. No fun!

  61. Great idea. MY daughter is a picky eater and I have a hard time finding meals for her.

  62. I love the apps out there. I never had to deal with this. I introduced all foods to my daughter when she was young and she eats all kinds of foods now.

  63. I will have to tell my sister in law about this! Her son is the most picky I have EVER seen, it is really hard to get food in that boy!! Thanks for sharing!

  64. Interesting app. Looks like fun and learning with that.

  65. My kids have gotten better with age, but I still have an 8 year old who won’t touch anything green without a huge fight. I’ll have to check into this app.

  66. Wait. You mean there is something wrong with living on string cheese? Or any type of cheese? 😉 I am thankful kiddo will try anything we ask her to and for the most part, she pretty much enjoys all fruits and vegetables.

  67. This seems like a great app for kids who are picky eaters. But what about adults who are picky?? I know a lot of those 😉

  68. This sounds like a great app. My son was a really picky eater when he was younger. I am glad he out grew it for the most part. Bad part is my food bill doubled.

  69. My tips are always talking with your child’s doctor too. Since my son has SPD part of his sensory problem is textures with foods. This app is a really great idea for kids like him because he loves apps that seem like games, such a great thing to make for kids and parents!

  70. My son has always been a great eater, but that seems to have changed in the past 2 weeks or so. Now, he’s just asserting his voice and deciding each day what new thing he doesn’t like. I hope it passes!

  71. This sounds like a very cool app.. my younger kids could really get into this!

  72. I did not know that Pica made an app for picky eaters. We have one for preschool.

  73. What a neat app! My girls are both super picky but definitely getting better recently.

  74. My younger son is a very picky eater so I love the idea of having some support. This is a really great idea.

  75. This looks like a great app. I wish they had one when my son was little.

  76. That’s a decent app and it’s not pricey at all! There’s so many picky eaters out there.

  77. I always try to be realistic about what my kids eat… I never wanted to make food an “issue”. I mean we all have our likes and dislikes and that’s personal preference. But when I see them constantly opting for unhealthy choices: I simply don’t buy any. Plain and simple there will be no cookies, jello, suckers, ice cream, cake or freezies in this house. your choice guys: eat your carrots, or some other veggie and maybe I’ll buy some Oreo’s next grocery trip.
    I just hate having food battles. It should be simpler.

  78. I will be checking this out. My daughter is SO picky it is crazy!~

  79. This app sounds like a lot of fun! I’ll have to check it out. Thanks for sharing.

  80. Oh wow, I never knew about this app – this would definitely be great – love this.

  81. My mom’s solution was this: This is what’s for dinner, eat it.

    I still that method works! LOL 😉

  82. Ow this is really so fun! I’m so relate haha lol.

  83. Sounds like this could be a healpful app! My son is such a picky eater and it’s becoming so frustrating!

  84. This app sounds like a lifesaver! Very helpful for mom’s with picky eaters.

  85. I’m lucky enough to not have a picky eater but it looks like this app would be a lot of help! Learning during play is a big thing for me. If they can still be educated, this might be something for my family!

  86. I am going to have to check this out, my 8 year old can be so picky sometimes!

  87. This is an interesting app. It will be great for those with kids.

  88. My son went through a stage where he didn’t want to eat anything but hot dogs. Something like this might have been very helpful for us.

  89. This looks so amazing and I bet it’s such a huge help with a lot of little kids.I don’t have children of my own, but I know I’ll be in for a handful if they end up being like me. Even now I am so ridiculously picky.

  90. I love this app so much wish it was around when my girls were younger.

  93. Such a great tool for parents of picky eaters. It’s amazing what technology can do today!

  103. I’ll definitely have to download this. My 8 year old is pretty picky when it comes to food, too.
