How to Deal with a Fussy Eater?

Posted on 25 Nov by Admin | cooking 3 min read

Did you know that fussy eating is one of the most common issues that parents struggle to address? Trying to get a child to eat a nutritious and healthy meal can become frustrating as their taste and preference keep changing. If this issue is not addressed in the early stages, it could affect your child’s diet.

Here are a few pointers that will help parents as well as teachers of best play school in Bangalore encourage children to turn into a healthy eater.

  • Ensure that your children are introduced to different types of foods at an early age so that they are not deprived of the essential nutrients their body needs to grow and develop.

  • As parents, you should encourage your child’s healthy eating habits by sitting down together and eating as a family. This will lower the risk of them developing poor eating habits and will enjoy their meal.

  • Keep appreciating your children when they eat well or when they try something new. This will make mealtimes less stressful for you and more enjoyable for them.

  • Another creative way that can be helpful for parents is by trying to prepare food in different ways. For e.g, if your child dislikes cauliflower, you can mash it or roast it. By doing so children can lose their impulse to reject food.

  • Parents can also ask the children for their help while cooking, no matter the portion size, getting them to help in the making food will more likely lead them to eat the food and also feel proud about helping out.

  • You can also try and make your own version of healthy junk food using good quality food items. For e.g, for dessert, you can make fresh fruit ice lollipops made from fresh juice and pureed fruits.

  • Parents are always worried about their children getting enough nutrients. So one other way of getting nutrients in their food is by sneaking in veggies and fruits when they are not looking.

  • The only way it is possible for your children to eat healthily is if you act on it at an early stage. The constant effort towards this will make your life easier in the long run as it is a known fact that no child’s eating habit can be changed overnight. Small steps taken every day will eventually promote healthy eating as each child is different from another.

    Apart from the above-mentioned tips, you can also try a few other approaches such as:

    - Set a goal as to how many times you will sit and have a meal as a family and stick to it.

    - Every week all members of the family must try a new food item that they have not had before. This will help children in trying a new food every week.

    - Once a month each family member gets to decide a dinner theme and this should be followed by everyone else. During this theme night, you can also ask your child to contribute by getting their help in preparing a meal.
