Mommy, you give your all in preparing nourishing food for your child. From menu planning, grocery shopping, slicing ingredients, to serving dishes beautifully. But don't forget that to nourish your child, it takes more than food, it takes a positive attitude towards food as well.
Your child's positive attitude towards food will help him develop healthy eating habits that he can take with him as he grows older. Here are some steps you can take so that your 100% effort can mean so much more:
1. Focus on quality of food versus quantity.
Remember mommy, having more does not always mean that it's good. Know the proper amounts of different food needed in your child's diet. You can use the Food Pyramid as a guide. This will help you in knowing if your kid is eating the right amount of food to help him grow and develop normally.
2. Make family dinners a priority.
Creating a positive experience during mealtime is an effective way to make your kid enjoy eating nutritous food. Make sure that most of his meals are with the family and not in front of the TV. Also, keep the mood light and pleasant, so the kids would not feel that they are being forced.
3. Avoid language that promotes guilt around food.
Young children can quickly pick up connotations on words that you use in describing food. You should be careful when you talk about food. It is better to focus on the message that food provides nourishment.
