Kids can be a little fussy about what they like to eat and what they do not like to eat. Normally we all know that kids like to eat junk food and sweets and that they hate eating anything that is good or nutritious.
There are some things that you can do in order figure out and change your kids eating habits.
One thing you can do is try to figure out what type of good food your kid enjoys.
It is not easy to figure out but one of the best things you can do is prepare the dish and see if your child would enjoy it. If not ask them why they do not like it. You will be able to get a basic idea on what your child likes and don’t like and why it is so.
If you still have trouble feeding your kid then there is one thing you can do, that is to play dirty. Trick them into eating it. Make the dishes look pleasant and nice. If they like junk food like burgers and hotdogs then decorate the dishes you make at home so that they look like junk food.
Make a burger out of food that is healthy. Put in a bit of flavors and sauce and your child will gobble it down in a heartbeat. The best way to make your child eat vegetables (most kids hate the idea of a vegetable) is to make them drink it. Blend in the vegetables with some fruits and tell them it is fruit juice.
Kids love fruit juice and the taste of the vegetables will not be able to overpower the taste of the fruits. It will just taste like fruit juice.
Vary the dishes you make. Decorate them in different ways; this will get your child to try it. When they see something new, they will be inquisitive enough to try it. Even if it is the same dish, change the decoration and display. The child will think that it is something new and try it on for size.
Give your child a lot of fruits. Kids like to eat fruits, so they will enjoy that. Make a desert and tell them that they can only have the desert if they finish the main course. They will eat their meal just to get at the desert in the end. If your child has a sweet tooth, then make things like jelly, they are very good for your child’s bones and are very nutritious.
There are several things you can do to make your child eat well, all you need to do is move a little and see what your child likes to eat.
