I think that every mother sooner or later faces a decrease or even a lack of appetite in the child. However, some believe that there is nothing wrong with that. Others, on the contrary, see this as a problem and try to solve it.
The first step is to find out the reasons why the child does not want to eat. Perhaps he has something sore: cold, teething, constipation, dysbacteriosis. In this case, do not force the child to eat or try to awaken his appetite. First you need to cure him.
If the child is healthy, snacks, fatigue, or dislike of a particular type of food can be the reasons for refusing food. What to do in such situations, how to convince the baby to eat, and is it necessary? I think it is necessary. After all, children during the day spend an enormous amount of energy and strength that must be restored.
I would recommend moms to adhere to a strict diet. It is necessary to teach the child to have breakfast, lunch and dinner always at the same time. And no snacking! No sweets, juice, cookies or other food at the table. All sweets and fruits only after meals.
Itself has tried it many times, it works flawlessly. It is a pity that for a long time I was not enough. Well, I can not every day deny my baby indulge in delicious just like that. Although often then I regret it.
Beauty and diversity
All beautiful attracts the attention of the child. Food is no exception. The sandwich, prepared in the form of faces or fruits, laid out in the form of a machine, the kid certainly wants to try. Fortunately, finding such recipes is currently not a problem. Opened the Internet, and before you detailed instructions with photos.
It should not be during the day, as well as day by day to feed the child the same. After all, even adults are fed up with monotonous food. Diversity in food is a very important factor in having a good appetite. Of course, sometimes not always enough time and effort to cook separately for breakfast, lunch and dinner. In this case, you can make a variety of dessert baby.
Having a company in the process of eating my son has a significant impact. He loves when the whole family gathers at the table. The desire to imitate an adult plays out his appetite so much that sometimes he starts asking for supplements.
Sometimes I let a child take part in the cooking process. Of course, most often his help ends in confusion. But the dinner, to which the son has made efforts, he will definitely eat.
Just magically on children affects the fresh air. Walking on the street for more than two hours will surely make the baby hungry. A similar effect on the child have trips to the pool. Every visit to our place ends with a good dinner and a strong subsequent sleep.
And most importantly, you can never force a child to eat. This causes only a negative attitude towards the process of eating.
