THE PICKY EATER PART 1

Lititia-Mancini-parliament-street-newsBy: Letitia Mancini ~ Family Coach.  “What do you mean you don’t like pasta? You liked it yesterday!”
Sound familiar?

 
No matter what a child is actually eating, parents always feel their children are not eating the enough of the right foods. Normally developing children with no medical reason to not eat will eat. So, what are the facts?

 
Children’s eating habits change for many reasons. When children are getting ready or are growing, they tend to eat more. This can be confusing as some times they eat everything and the next week, it looks like they hardly eat at all. This is because children don’t always grow; it’s a process that stops and starts. When not growing, children tend to eat smaller amounts of food. Growing makes children hungry!

 
Children eat less when they are sick. If you are concerned about your child’s fluid or food intake when they are sick, never hesitate to see your pediatrician.

 
Children’s tastes buds change over time. Infants are greedy for sweet, fatty milk. Toddles still like the sweet things, but are beginning to explore a wider variety of flavours and textures. As they experience foods they develop their likes and dislikes. However, these are ever changing. One day your child will like avocado, the next day they won’t. The trick is how you introduce foods.
