What are some tricks for feeding a picky toddler?
My daughter is the worst eater on the planet. We practically have to do a song-and-dance routine to get her to eat. Any advice for myself and others?
Hey Max, join the club, lol. My son was the same way for years, we kept asking his doctor how to get him to eat, his answer was always, "he'll eat when he's hungry". Now hes 14 and I can't buy enough groceries, so give it some time, she will eat when she's hungry.
My daughter on the other hand was a natural eater, and she like good food like veggies and fruit. She has never changed and shes 18, her favorite snack is sliced tomatoes with salt and pepper, so it all depends on the child.
I know that answer doesn't help much, but that's how it is. Time changes everything, so just keep testing different foods until you find something she likes
Trying too hard can put kids off any activity and this includes eating. Make light of the whole episode and act as if it is no big deal. Doctors say that kids should eat the same food as the family at the dining table. For some like your daughter it may not work. My son too comes under this category. I read stories to him while he eat. It combines two good activities and the atmosphere remains pleasant. Isn't that what we want? If this works, continue for a few months or a year until she is comfortable with eating. Then let her join others at the table.
My son didn't want to eat either when he was young. After he eaten a couple of mouthfuls he was bored and wanted to be off doing something else which is very disheartening when you've spent a lot of time preparing the meal.
And just like Eddie's son he now consumes large amounts of food so unless your daughter isn't growing and developing as she should I would try not to about it.
