Carrie Underwood may be a Grammy-winning superstar, but like many mothers, she comes home to a picky eater at the end of the day.

In an interview with Rachel Ray, the “Drinking Alone” singer revealed that even though she introduces her 5-year-old, Isaiah, to a variety of healthy foods, he’s still a bit of a picky eater.

So how does she handle it?

“We have a thing where it’s just like you have to try it, just try it,” she told Ray. “I’m hoping one day he actually starts liking things. He likes carrots, he likes spinach.”

Underwood, a longtime vegetarian, also opened up about family meals at home with her husband, Mike Fisher.

“I’m not a good meat-cooker because I’m not a good meat-eater,” she explained. “So I will do all of the veggies and all of the sides and if (husband Mike) wants meat, he’s going to have to make that himself.”


Underwood’s appearance on the Rachael Ray Show was in support of her brand new book, FIND YOUR PATH: Honor Your Body, Fuel Your Soul, and Get Strong with the Fit52 Life, and fitness app, fit52.

“It’s about balance. It’s about eating things and doing things that you love and making your body work for you,” the superstar shared. “Feeding the machine the way it should be fed, but also, enjoying yourself and being able to have those moments of ya know, ‘I’m eating with friends and I’m gonna enjoy myself.’”

In between national television appearances, Underwood has been making her way to a few cities across the U.S. for her first-ever book tour. The final date on the tour is scheduled for March 17 in Los Angeles.
