I don’t know about your kids, but mine absolutely LOVE chicken nuggets!
They especially love the dinosaur kind because it lets them actually play with their food without getting into trouble.
Tyson wants to help parents conquer mealtime battles with picky eaters, Tyson Foods and Robin Miller are teaming up to show how finger foods, like Tyson® 100% All Natural Chicken Nuggets, can not only please picky eaters but also be fundamental in building a foundation of balanced eating habits.
As I am sure you know, 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.

Looking for more “nuggets” to help please finicky eaters? Here are a few top solutions submitted by parents:
- “I started a point system chart to get my two children to eat better. They would get points for giving up pop, eating vegetables, and trying new foods (that one was worth 10 points!). At the end of the week, I would give them a penny for every point they earned. It wouldn’t amount to much: sometimes between $2-$3, but it was worth it to get them to eat better.”
- “I have boys so if we have noodles for supper, I tell them we are having boiled worms instead. Green beans are snake bites. Chicken nuggets are bird Frisbees. I add blue food coloring to scrambled eggs to have scrambled alien eggs. My kids are much more excited to have a bowl of boiled worms than to have something boring for supper.”
- “Our children love chicken nuggets, but it’s often hard to get them to eat healthy side dishes. So, we started growing a vegetable garden. Now, they love running outside to see what healthy food is growing. For the first time ever, they are eating broccoli, beets, spinach, bell peppers and other yummy home-grown food.”
- “I have ‘appetizers’ out while I’m preparing dinner. I put out cut up veggies, a bowl of cherry tomatoes, hummus and baby carrots, or cut up fruit (on toothpicks if I have the time) and the kids can graze while we talk about their day. It lets the kids make healthy choices and reduces the food struggles to get them to eat their dinners.”
- “Save the best for last! We put meat and veggies on the plate first for hungry kids to dig into. My picky eater won’t eat anything else once the mashed potatoes hit the plate.”
- “At mealtime, I have little metal bowls that I fill with dipping sauces and put them in the middle of the table for them to share. Whatever we are having, I always give them dipping sauces, such as ketchup, mustard or honey. As long as they can dip their food into one of these, they will eat anything. Sounds really simple, but works for my kids.”
- “Make ‘art structures’ out of food. It’s easy to get carrots and grape tomatoes and chicken down when they are created into silly faces, dogs, horses, or any favorite animal. Once they get past the first experience, throw in asparagus and more adventurous vegetables.”
- “I try to get my picky eater to eat healthy by telling her she has to eat a certain number of pieces of healthy fruit or vegetables. She tries to negotiate the number down, so we end up compromising with her…”
