Moms need to be creative when it comes to providing nutrition for kids. This is especially important when their kids become more interested in exploring everything, except their food. To help moms overcome the constant challenge of providing proper nutrition for kids, below are creative ways to get distracted eaters to eat during mealtime:
Tip #1 – Decorate the plate
Nothing can be more appealing to eat than a plate filled with eye-catching goodies—even if it is made of the stuff your child rarely eats. For inspiration, browse through your child's favorite storybooks and recreate his favorite characters on his plate. Cut sandwiches with unique cookie cutters, draw faces with peanut butter, or arrange green, leafy veggies as hair. No matter what you do, prioritize giving proper nutrition for kids by choosing only the healthiest ingredients.
Tip #2 – Sing during mealtime
This might require a bit of an effort on your part, but it often works. When a child becomes distracted from eating, singing his favorite song can distract him from what he is doing and turn his attention to you. You may end up singing the same song many times during the meal, but it shouldn't matter. Turning mealtime into a concert is just one of the ways moms like you achieve their goal of providing the right nutrition for kids.
Tip #3 – Teach your child to count
You can make mealtime educational by teaching your child to count. Use his food to do this. Break it down into many bite-sized pieces then count together each bite he takes. You can count up to 10 and start again from zero. Just remember, because part of giving proper nutrition to kids is teaching them to listen to their stomach, stop feeding once your child feels full.
Finally, don't forget to serve Lactum 3+ or 6+ with your child's meals. Lactum has the essential nutrients found in food groups from the food pyramid to help make your child 100% nourished* even if he is a distracted eater.
