Instructions

1.    Find out why your child refuses to eat. Everyone needs to eat, and if your child refuses the meal, there may be some underlying reasons. For example, he may not be hungry, have digestive disorders or he could even feel too much pressure at the dinner table. Whatever the reasons are, by decoding the real causes behind the child’s behavior, you can handle this underlying problem.

2.    Cut down foods and drinks between scheduled mealtimes. Instead of ruining your child’s appetite by letting him eating snacks and sweets throughout the day, you can set fixed time for main meals and snacks. Children may be more likely to eat if they are hungry and know what to expect.

3.    Try the taste and texture when preparing the meals and snacks for your child. Some children don’t like certain food textures. Try the taste with your child and watch his reactions when he’s eating small pieces of food. You can see that most children prefer hard and crunchy vegetables to soft fruits. And by this, you can prepare better future meals.

4.    Turn mealtimes into interesting and funny moments for the whole family. If you let your child eating under the pressure of censuring and punishment, he may refuse to eat or even hate mealtimes. And if he doesn’t eat at mealtime, just calm down and show him that the foods are still there when he is hungry.

5.    Allow the child to take part in the preparation process. If he can see, touch or smell different kinds of foods before they end up on his plate, he may be more excited about trying the food. While small kids can even help with pouring and dumping ingredients, older children can help to peel and chop soft foods.

6.    Talk to your doctor if you still cannot make your child to eat. The doctor may check his development and weight or height to make sure that your child is still healthy. Or you can talk about vitamin supplement to make up for what lack in the diet. This can help you rest assured that your child is getting the necessary nutrients, despite of his picky eater behavior.
