Are you the reason behind your childs fuss Find out

Are you always trying to feed your child (and may we add – ‘forcefully’) the last few bites left on the plate so that you have the satisfaction that your little one has finished the meal? Well… most parents do this and it is out of natural concern for their child’s health, but here’s what you need to know – ‘keeping up this practice may cause the child more harm and little good’ – find out more on this from our proparent blogger Sweta Kadam.

It's really helpful. After reading this blog, I realised, even I am force feeding my son.. Even my son eats easily in the start of meal, and at last he refuses. Now I'm going to stop force feeding and let him decide, when he wants to eat..

yes the blog is really very helpful. I agree we are behind their being fussy and struggle is relly with the last 2-3 morshals. Its common among every indian mother , if our baby had 2 morshals we would definitely like to give 2 more . This may relly make them withdraw from the food or they will start disliking the food.

i make him sit in a bean bag, play his favorite music video on tv or mobile, n success, he enjoys both food n music, dances too while eating. feeding is imp, no matter how u do it. but once done with feeding, take away the phone or turn off tv. every mom has her own way. hope some of u moms agree with me.. happy feeding

i know expert says that don't make a habit to show tv or mobile. but when it comes to make them eat, we sometimes have to break the rule. my son is a music lover, when he was 4 months old, he was a fan of sairat film music. i agree that it was me who make him listen but i feel it's ok, i mean, who does not love music. and i m being a classical music student.

i agree to this. may b sometime back i was making my son a fussy eater. i realised that even if he is hungry, he will not open his mouth for the food he doesn't like even when i dnt show him what's in the plate? but sometimes, he comes to me crying just seeing that i m carrying his food plate without him knowing what's in the plate with me. i dnt know how, may b kids have that sixth sense kind of thing.

My son almost 4 doesn't show any interest in food many times. I cannot force feed even a bite but I have to insist as well as negotiate and show TV so that something goes in him. If he doesn't eat, he is extremely cranky and still he doesn't understand the reason. As soon as he is well fed, mood improves and he is happy. So insisting on feeding becomes important.

So the point is how to make a child eat meals. I tried to feed her calmly but then it feels that day by day she is moving away from her meals and more interested in just playing and running. I really feel guilty when I have to force her to eat. But then what is the other way out? Please reply.
