Moms know that having a picky eater at home can really be a challenge. That's why when it comes to providing the complete nutrition for children, moms exert a lot of effort in trying to prepare meals that are both nourishing and appetizing for a picky eater.
Check out these tips recommended by Lactum and find out how you can help meet the required nutrition for children:
Force feed We know it's challenging whenever kids don't want to finish their food or ask for their favorite dishes all the time. Mahirap talaga kung mapili sa pagkain ang inyong mga anak. Pero moms, don't let this challenge make you force feed your child. Force feeding just upsets your child and can lead them to be discouraged during mealtimes. Remember moms, mealtimes should also be a fun and enjoyable experience for your kids.
Do: Plan your dishes with the kids
Every once in a while, let your kids decide and prepare their own food. This way, they would feel involved in the process, and at the same time, they would be anticipating on the food that they would be eating. But don't forget mommies to prepare nutritious meals along with your kids' favorite meals to help complete the required nutrition for children.
Don't: Insist on finishing their food
Like force feeding, insisting that your kids finish their plate might become a discomfort for them. Make sure that every mealtime is enjoyable for the kids para less stressful. What you need to do instead of having them finish their food, encourage your kids to eat up just until they are full. And to make sure that you provide the proper nutrition for children, prepare dishes that are healthy and easy to eat.
Do: Listen up!
When your kids say they don't like the taste of a certain food, listen to them. May ibang food kasi na masarap sa panlasa nating mga adults, pero hindi naman okay sa panlasa ng mga kids. This is because kids have more taste buds than adults do kaya mas rich at mas nalalasahan nila ang sweetness or bitterness ng isang pagkain. So moms, make sure that your dishes are not only healthy but also have flavors that won't overwhelm your kids.
Do: Give them the right milk
