If your child has food selectivity due to texture sensitivity, here is a good place to start. The T-VANT (Table of Vitamins and Nutrients related to Texture) is a tool to guide you through increasing the amount of nutrient-dense foods in your child's diet. For example, if your child only likes crunchy foods but you suspect is low in iron, you can match the two and find multiple examples of foods to try to incorporate into your child's diet that are crunchy and also rich in iron. The back of this form also gives nutrient recommendations for your child based on their age and gender!
