Is it necessary? Why do parents often force children to eat products that are healthy but not loved by children? As well as adults, many children do not like something from food. And parents are worried about this.
Probably the biggest parental experiences are the rejection of children from the following products:
– cottage cheese
Hardly anyone from parents wonders why you need to eat with bread? And whether it is necessary at all? For example, I love bread very much. For me to refuse bread is an impossible task. I’d rather give up sweet. I even (now you will be terrified) pasta and dumplings with bread. But not all people, and especially children, also have a positive attitude towards him.
Bread, of course, a useful product. Basically, it contains B-group vitamins. But the same vitamins are also found in other products. If the child refuses bread, do not force it. The body is a serious mechanism, he knows what he is missing.
I say this with complete certainty, because before my eyes my whole childhood, my sister suffered about this. Parental Eat with bread sounded at all meals. As a result, the sister is already an adult, and she still does not eat bread. And, by the way, quite healthy.
True, the confidence that you need to eat with bread sat down so deeply in us that I, of course, also very early gave my son bread. First, in the form of sushka, and then they came to real bread. The child is still not two years old, and he already knows that the soup should be eaten with bread. By the way, my baby loves bread more than all sorts of cookies.
But most likely, such a setup comes from the ancient rather hungry times: with bread, the food is more satisfying and economical.
I thought that all children simply adore all there curds, yogurts and other dairy goodies. It was not there. My son flatly refuses them.
I tried everything: purchased jars, made cottage cheese myself and mixed it with berries and fruits, baked casseroles, offered cheesecakes … The reaction was the same: a grimace, as if he had been given some kind of inedible muck.
Well, well, while he is still in breast milk and loves cheese. I think calcium is enough for him.
Many children do not like meat. I don’t even know how not to worry: after all, meat is a protein that is valuable for a child’s growing body. Again, hemoglobin without meat can fall. My child really loves meat. But my mom’s acquaintances have to deceive their son in every possible way by slipping this food to him.
My son does not particularly like fruit. I’m worried: what about vitamins? I regularly offer him, peel an apple, cut slices of a banana, brush the tangerine, put it in a plate in the hope that it will work and be tempted by something. But that rarely happens. I buy pureed fruits, and they eat them badly.
It happens that I feed him with this dessert when he is fascinated by something: I slip it in a spoon. But is it right? Well, if he does not, he does not. But if he wants, he will not confuse him with anything: he will jump near me and amkat until he gets what he wants.
Do you have such a problem? And how do you deal with it?
