Fussy eating is normal as kids learn about food. Although it is exciting to watch them gain their independence and voice their opinions about food, it can be frustrating when they say “no” to food or meals presented to them.

 

Panel 1

Simple approaches

After spending so much effort into preparing a nourishing meal for your child, it is understandable why meal times can be frustrating for parents when they refuse to eat.

Most times, children will eventually eat when they are hungry. Sometimes they just need time to “wind down” from their previous activity to shift their attention to the food placed in front of them. Often times, your child is just going through a phase and may “grow out of it”.

Panel 2

About

Understanding the likes and dislikes, the yes and no, and the opinions and thoughts of your child will help you develop simple strategies to broaden their relationship to food.

My experience as an accredited practising dietitian and a certified SOS approach practitioner will enable me to empower you and your child’s approach to healthy eating.
