In Dr. Phil season 3, Francesca’s parents said the 2-year-old was a “picky eater” with very sophisticated tastes. They said they were losing the food battle with their toddler.

“Continue introducing additional foods. Something will hook, and her tastes will change,” Dr. Phil told the couple, advising them to be patient. “You’ve got to pick your battles with children. Don’t pick this one.”

Francesca’s parents listened to Dr. Phil’s advice, and the now 19-year-old college sophomore says her fussy eating habits are long gone.
