A Few Meal Time Rules

A Few Meal Time Rules

Your child at this stage needs some mealtime rules. In order to ensure meal times go smoothly for you and your child, you can try the following.

-Keep the environment noise free, calm and relaxed.

-Try having meals together as a family. Model yourself eating healthy which is observed by your little one.

-Don’t force your child to finish his meal or yell at him.

-Introduce new food items along with his known favourites.

-Be prepared for mess. You can spread a cover sheet below his high chair to ease the cleaning process.

-Accept he being fussy over certain food items. Try giving them again after few days. 

-Stick to his meal time routine as far as possible. Upsetting the schedule can get him cranky due to hunger and he may not settle down to eat easily.
