THE ROLE OF PARENTS
Regardless of how you want to feed, children usually decide what and how much to eat!
There are 5 important roles for parents and carers.
1. Be creative! Deliver a variety of healthy and delicious foods.
2. Be regular! Schedule meals and snacks regularly.
3. Make your meal times fun!
4. Teach the table manners!
5. Be an example!
A happy start helps the development of a healthy eating habit for life.
Here are tips to help your children eat healthy.
THE TABLE IS NOT A WAR OR BARGAIN
Bitir Finish your plate! ”
Yok No dessert before the meal is over!
"I'll give you candy if you finish your plate!"
These sentences are probably not very foreign to you. However, meals should not be a punishment or reward element. These negotiations will create new problems instead of solutions in the long run.
5 common childhood nutritional problems and solutions:
Requires the same food at every meal
Offer a new nutrient with the desired nutrient at each meal, and after a few days your child will try the other nutrient. Usually this problem is solved in a short time.
Reject the offered meal
At each meal, bread, sandwiches, fruit, such as children's favorite foods to keep the table. Be encouraging, but don't be afraid that your child will starve if he or she doesn't eat.
Want to watch TV during the meal
Turn off the TV. TV blocks family chat and affects your child's diet. Food is a special family gathering and TV time is fun.
Dislikes the food offered
Don't let your child consume what he wants, ask him to eat other food on the table, if he doesn't behave, ask him to go to his room or leave the table, and don't let him eat anything until the next meal.
Rejection of newly offered foods
Keep offering new foods, but don't force them, it may take time to be ready to try new flavors.
FOOD TIME IS NOT ONLY NUTRITION
Children imitate what they see around them. It is not possible for parents who do not have healthy eating habits to develop these features in their children. Set an example for your child by consuming healthy and delicious foods at regular times.
Parents are the problem of food entering the house. Make sure that your child has a variety of healthy foods around, which helps your children choose healthy foods for life.
Mealtime is the time when the family gets together and your child will develop a good eating habit while learning the appropriate behavior for a happy social life.
THREE, TWO, ONE… Come on to dinner!
Prepare your child for mealtime. Stimulate 5 minutes before a meal, give them time to prepare and wash their hands. It can take time for a restless, excited or tired child to be ready to eat.
Be adventurous and intelligent when buying various foods you want your child to eat.
Be flexible, do not worry if your child tries to avoid eating.
Be discreet and sensible, be a good example of healthy eating, consuming various healthy foods.
Allow your child to choose among the healthy foods you recommend.
SOME TYPES OF BEHAVIOR YOU MAY ACCEPT AS A PROBLEM IN YOUR CHILD.
Children see the table as a stage in which they show their independence. Skipping some meals, choosing meals, avoiding trying new menus are often part of your child's normal developmental process. Give your child the chance to choose from a rich selection of healthy foods. Over time your child will consume a sufficient amount of nutrients necessary for healthy development. An environment with a variety of healthy foods, a happy home that is not tense, is necessary for the development of healthy eating and behavior.
The various activities (hiking, playing ball, cycling, etc.) that you endure before the meal provide a healthy and fun environment for the whole family.
