Advice for parents of picky eaters While some kids consume everything placed in front of them, others require more encouragement. Try these strategies to help your child form new habits if they are limited to certain foods. If your child refuses to eat at all, you may need to address this differently as it may be related to other needs. In the event that you are concerned about an older child's eating habits, there are additional recommendations.

Present new dishes several times.

Try giving your child the new food another day if they reject it the first time. Repetition of sight should enable them become sufficiently accustomed to handle or taste it.

Try showing your child that it’s OK by eating it yourself. Or take it away and introduce it another day.

Establish a cheerful atmosphere

Consider the location and manner of your family meals. It can assist with:

As a group, sit down and mimic the behaviour you wish to witness. You can spend time together as a result.

Give praise rather than bribes.

To prevent your child from wanting to avoid a particular dish in the future, don't force or bribe them into eating it. Rather, attempt to introduce novel foods in a casual manner. When your youngster is bold enough to try them, show them plenty of love.

Limit your options and portion amounts.

Kids frequently don't require large servings to feel satisfied. Give your kids as much food as they want, but try not to compel them to eat more. If your youngster requests more, it could be simpler to start with less and work your way up.

Having too many choices can also be debilitating. Give your child two options to choose from. Your youngster may feel more included and in charge as a result of this. You'll accept either option if you present two healthful options.

Make eating enjoyable.

Consider how to add enjoyment to eating. Cut into odd shapes or arrange sections into animals or smiley faces. Your child can participate in this as well.

Present them with visually appealing and vibrant dishes. Kids require a diverse range of nutrients, including fruits, vegetables, protein, and healthy fats. Restrict salt and sugar intake.
