As she grows older, your child will start becoming more sociable, and will enjoy spending time with other members of the family. Meal time is an ideal time to bond with your little one as the whole family can get together at that time.

You can enhance bonding by making it a fun time for your child and involving her in the process of mealtimes. Ask for her opinion on what to cook and which plates or glasses to use. Let her help you set the table and call the family to the table. As you all eat together, let her point to what she would like, from a healthy selection of foods on the table.

If your little one is a fussy eater, you can gently point out that other family members are eating the same thing without complaint and she should do so too. Use fun shapes and colourful vegetables so your kid enjoys her meal and does not regard it as an ordeal.
