My son is 3. 5 yr old. He totally dislikes to eat any food and drink milk. he feels eating as a punishment for him and runs away when see the food. We used to feed him by diverting his mind from food, like by letting him to watch tv, playing games in mobile etc. hope ur tips wl work.

my kids are 12 years old , daughter eats very well and is completely aware of nutrition fact , but my son is very fussy in eating . V explain him now and Thn about the benifits of good and healthy food and how it Wil effect his height and other developments . And his twin sister sets the perfect example for that . V Hav let him free to Tak his own decisions about food ( Wht he wants to hav or not hav ) and just ask him weather u Wil giv this to ur child , if yes thn tak otherwise not . This is working well

Hi, thanks for the article, I have tried almost all of these, my 2. 5 yr old daughter does finish her food, without the TV but with play, and in no less than 1 hr. Uptil 2 months back, she used to take 2hrs or more to finish lunch. But that's only for lunch n dinner, the breakfast and evening snack get done in 20 mins. I had tried not giving food beyond 20 mins but then she has no energy and would sleep for 4 hrs. She has specific habits, will first eat only roti and curd by herself and then I sit with her and give veggies and dal. But I'm unable to get her to sit and eat at one go. She has outgrown her high chair, and runs off from the dining chair after 5 mins. Something's that have worked for her are buying veggies and being in the kitchen while I cook. She loves making roti. Also going to play school and meeting her cousins has helped. She is gaining height but her weight is constant at 10kgs for 7 months now, when earlier she was up to 13kg

Wow! Very interesting tips! Thanks a lot! One more tip from my home. My kids are 5 & 8 yrs. We have a point system at home. So the points increase based on what and how much healthy food is consumed by the kids! They love it as everyone gets more and more points as they eat!

hi. good article. Perhaps my problem is different, but i need a solution. My son loves oranges,yogurt and milk. thats it. he doesnot eat choclates,chips(i didnt introduce them). The problem here is he eats 3-4 oranges everyday and 3-4 (150ml each) gllases of milk and 2 cups of yogurt. thats it. he refuses any other food,eventhough they are colorful. He tastes them and appreciate me,but still ask for orange. As they are healthy, i am also not forcing him for anything. when i go out i carry my own snacks like boiled beans,groundnuts, oranges. He refuses them at home. How should i change his diet? i often feel, he is on dieting in place of us.
