Answer:
children have Food Neophobia which is a fear of new foods, which leads to a reluctance to try new foods. However, all kids grow out of it. Keep a gap of atleast 2-3 hours between each meal, so that your child is hungry enough to eat. Fix the meal times and serve food at those times only and not in between. Restrict the amount of milk to 500-550 ml in a day, so that the child would be hungry for other foods too. Serve a very small portion of a new food earlier in the day, when your little one is most energetic and the least aggressive. If you'd like your child to eat a particular food, then you should eat too. If your child isn't hungry, don't force a meal. Kids generally regulate their appetites by eating when hungry, so don’t fret. Be creative and serve a variety of brightly colored foods and cut foods into various shapes.. Make positive comments about the food you are eating, such as "this is yummy!", your toddler may be more willing to try them. Praise your toddler when he eats well, because toddlers respond positively to praise. Always serve small portions. Toddlers can be overwhelmed by big platefuls and lose their appetite. Keep trying. It’s a given fact that it may take 10 or more exposures to new foods before a child accepts them Remember that your child's eating habits won't change overnight but the small steps you take each day can help you overcome your dilemma Do read the following blog for more tips and suggestions http://www.parentune.com/parent-blog/how-to-make-your-toddler-eat-right/545
