@Ayesha Hi ,Ayesha there is nothing to worry so much. Fussy eating problems are common in this age group .Just be calm and understand the reason of your kid saying no all time. Also try some tips which I have mention in my blog. Another suggestion for you is to encourage your kid to do more physical activities so that after playing he gets hungry. Add some varieties in his food, presentation of food etc. "Remember magic is in our hand only"

@Marjorie Hi I can understand and would try to help you. See forcing our kid to eat actually never works. The more are forces the less likely they will actually eat. So, first we need to analysis the reasons why they are not eating and saying "no no" to food. Eventually all kids do get hungry and we need to wait for that time to feed them and then place a reasonable amount of food on their plate.. I would suggest dont give any junk foods like biscuits,chips ,etc before their meal time because that unnecessary satisfy their hunger and not healthy too. Instead if your kid wants to munch something before meal try giving some salads like,: Carrot cuts in stick shape,cucumber,tomato, and can be any fruits(show your creative hands here in making shapes)attract your kid to eat which is healthy, this will increase their appetite and will definitely eat satisfactory amount of his meal well. Hope this will help you. Happy parenting :)

Nice way to deal toddler during food tym. But i tell her stories from her younger stage about Ram Sita, one superhero who was very helpful but he use to avoid food then he was not able to fight with the monster etc etc etc aand at the age of 6 she eat and love to listen story. Every momaa can do use such different ideas to deal with their toddlers because as they grow we also learn some thing new.
