Dealing with fussy eaters
Are mealtimes a battleground? Parent versus child - a battle of wills as to who will cave first, leaving you feeling frustrated and exhausted by the end of it?
Well you’re not alone. A recent Asda survey showed that two-thirds of parents struggle to get their children to eat fruit and vegetables, and 41% admit to telling white lies to get their kids to eat their 5-a-day.
But mealtimes don’t need to be this way. When dealt with effectively, even the fussiest eater can be coaxed into trying - and enjoying - new foods.
By changing your child’s behaviour, dinner times will stop being disasters and instead will be a positive bonding time for all the family.
Rosemary Albone, resident expert at Care.com, runs us through what to do if your child is fussy when it comes to food.
So your healthy intentions can become a reality for your little ones!
