If your child is a finicky-eater or likes doing every other task except eating, you are up for a big challenge. And this is not an issue with only the mothers. Both the parents are now equally concerned for the health and nutrition of their child. I have seen fathers running after their kids with a plate of food in hand, just to ensure that their kid gets a bit of nibble.
If you too have such a kid, neither could you be too easy-going, because you certainly want your kid to be healthy, nor could you be too strict, it would spoil your kid. And what is important in this aspect is to lure your kids towards healthy food. Here are some of the tips that you can follow in the process:
- No person on the earth can live without food and not even your kids. When the stomach growls, they would look for something to eat. Make sure you keep all those cookies and deep-fried products away from their reach and keep their healthy food near them. When they are hungry, even healthy foods would appear quite tasty to them.
- Kids love foods in shiny wrappers and packets. If your kid is still very young, but finicky, take wrappers of their favorite food products and fill them with healthy eatables. Fruits and dry fruits go well with such tricks.
- Your kid would hate an eatable if you do it too. So the best thing to do is to lead by example. Eat the healthy veggies and other products in front of your kids and tell them how delicious they are. Kids will always try to imitate you.
- Some deep-fried products can be healthy enough if taken once in a while. You can offer your kids fried chicken, fried fish, fried veggies, etc. once a week, and lure them to eat other healthy stuff the entire week if they wish to get that amazing snack on the weekends.
These are some of the tips that can lure the interest of finicky eaters in your home. Do try these and give me applause if you like them.
