What to Do If One Goes on Food Jags

  • Indulge food preferences as much as possible, provided the overall diet is reasonably balanced. It’s okay to serve the same entree day after day.

  • Serve the same food more than once in a day if it’s requested.

  • Ask the doctor about adding vitamins if the diet seems unbalanced.

  • Consider preparing the food in different formats: A hot chicken breast might be refused, for example, while chicken soup or chicken salad might be eaten without complaint.

  • Try to serve old favorites from the person’s childhood or prime of life; these are often still remembered and preferred.
