Nutrition for Kids: Picky Eaters
If your child is a picky eater, here are some tips to teach your child healthy eating habits.
never use food as a bribe, reward or punishment; this will only cause eating habit problems later on in life
Be creative: make mealtime fun! Make a ‘face’ on your pizza out of vegetables and other healthy toppings.
If your toddler doesn’t want to eat a certain food, don’t force him to eat it and don’t offer an alternative; this will only cause more serious eating problems later on.
Try to offer your child smaller portions; larger portions can be overwhelming for a young child.
Most importantly set a positive example for your children. If you maintain healthy eating habits, your child will be much more likely to as well.
