A Few Meal Time Rules

A Few Meal Time Rules
1y+
Feeding

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.
