Top tips for fussy eaters
We know how stressful mealtimes can be especially if more food seems to end up on the floor than in their tummy. Why not try some of this bite-size tips tp help you while you work towards healthy, happy mealtimes.
Small is the way forward
Start with giving your child something small to try, like a single pea. Then try to increase the amount very slightly each time you offer it to them until they’re eating the correct portion size for their age.
Keep it low key
When you give your child something new to eat be casual about it, as if it’s nothing important. If they don’t try it, keep your cool and don’t react. Children pick up on our moods and will quickly associate that food with negative emotions.
Slow wins the race
Take your time there’s no rush. Don’t bombard your child with lots of new flavours at once. Slowly introduce them over time and add the occasional new food to a meal they like.
