Make It A Point To Try New Foods Yourself In Front Of Your Kid
Your child observes you and imitates your behaviour from the very beginning of his life and now is no different. If you want your child to inculcate right eating habits and try out new foods, try new foods yourself in front of him.
Having meal times together as a family also helps, as he sees all trying new foods.
You can also talk about the new food saying, “ This tastes just like ______ fruit” or “ This is so sweet and yummy.” “I really like to eat it.”
However, amidst all this don’t lose the fun of meal time and avoid making it a battle for both of you if he does not try the food. Your ultimate goal is to get him to eat the new healthy foods, which may take few attempts.
