Tips to feed your child

  • Updated: May 8, 2013 - 1:30 PM

1. Don’t say, “You’re probably not going to like this,” as you serve something new.

2. Even if your kids don’t like new foods, keep on trying. (The alternative is that in 50 years, senior communities will be filled with people who only nibble on chicken nuggets.)

3. Start with small portions. Fall back on a two-bite effort, if necessary.

4. Don’t beg kids to eat something. (They will resist it even more.)

5. Use peer pressure when possible. Another child who is a good eater (or an older child) may have a positive influence simply by eating at the same table.
