Answer:
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.
