I have two kids growing up. Sometimes they love mischief and capriciousness. And they are terrible non-members! What I do not offer them to eat, it’s not that. The eldest daughter, in general, it happens that only at lunch may want to eat.
The problem of feeding the little foes
It turns out that this is not only my problem. But if it rarely occurs with us, then it is constant with other mommies I know. They complain about the disgusting appetite of their sons and daughters. Children often and thickly do not eat soups, cereals and other dishes at home. But in the garden come off in full! Why? Maybe it tastes better to burst?
Once we were visiting my girlfriend. And my daughter wanted to eat. I asked Julia to feed her. We were joined by the son of Julia. I think to myself that now the children are drowning and going for a walk, but we can chat a little. But no! My daughter ate only two spoons of soup. Similarly, Slavik. I was surprised that the child’s appetite was excellent.
When we came home, I asked my daughter why she did not want to eat.
– Mom, the soup was tasteless. You and grandmother Olga cook delicious. And aunt Julia is not.
– What’s wrong with the soup?
– It is tasteless, just none.
The answer is significant. Perhaps this is another reason why children do not want to eat. Food is tasteless. Yes, and the child may simply not like any dishes and products that parents and educators are trying to stuff into it.
When a baby feels unwell, his appetite disappears. Right now my daughter is sick, she has a fever. Matter of course, I feed her only on request, more often I give warm liquid (tea, milk, compote). When the teeth are climbing, the child also does not lean on the food. Therefore, in these cases, you should not even overfeed and persistently talk about food intake.
And children love independence. And they also need to eat on their own! And if the child is not in the mood, and he refuses to eat, you can offer him the role of a cook. Why? Mine often together with me bake cookies, cakes, and we also cook the first together. The daughter can cut carrots and potatoes, the son constantly asks to add bay leaves and greens. But all under my supervision!
And they would only sweets …
Sweets love everything. But they spoil their teeth, and in general they are harmful. You can, of course, some sweets and eat, but what is the use of them? Still, it is better to eat normal, healthy food. And after it you can let a crumb a couple of sweets with tea. Better yet, instead of candy, offer fruit or homemade candy.
For example, we cooked lollipops ourselves. I also dried bananas, apples and pears in the dryer. It turns out very tasty and healthy chips.
In general, you can feed the nedeyak. And not only borsch, but also other dishes. True? Do you have any secrets to help?
