great ideas.. even I use audiovisuals n story books to feed my daughter... But this becomes a habit n problem arises when they hav to eat in school by themselves or even at home. My daughter eats almost everything when she is engaged but not otherwise. Plz suggest something on this.

Really educational videos n cartoons on internet & a high dinner chair 4 kids has kept me a little away 4rm this ordeal. It has me a chill 2 think what will happen when he outgrows this chair! And also will he ever enjoy family dinner without watching videos? I guess then we hv animate those cartoon characters

So very true.. I tell him my childhood tales and now we together build stories while I am feeding him.. another problem is by when will they start eating on their own.. The moment I serve him he'll tell his grandma that mama will feed me :-O

I agree.. elderly in the family, specially inlaws would always blame us for making kids habit like that.... sitting in front of TV and eating. They never understand the times have changed, and so are the kids....

nice blog Varuna but i would like to add we should respect taste of children n try to develop it with different foods n some fantasy they like it.

A well written blog Varuna. This definitely every mothers nightmare. My son still says NO to all fruits including shakes and juices. Hoping they outgrown this phase and start experimenting with food.

Tejashree, I agree with your points, however, if kids say they don't wanna eat and if we would leave them as they want, then they will not ask for food whole day.

One more thing i suggest is respect your kid's need and mood. accept when he tells that he dont want to eat or eat only chocolates. I am not saying that you should give in, but empathize with him/her and make them understand. Its matter of habit and persistence. It will be difficult in beginning but gradually kids understand it. Let them eat whatever they wants once in a while as a token of appreciation

i agree its every mother's story when it comes to feeding kids. But i might like to suggest a few things. Firstly whatever the case may be i strongly disapprove on feeding kids while watching tv or using ipads or mobiles. This way we are just filling up their stomach an not giving them energy resource. Secondly if one is keen, ayurveda strongly disagrees any combination of milk and any fruit.

My scenario is same I tried all . my daughter is 5. 6 . Still I am feeding her milk with spoon and the major meal is obviously fed by me. I also have the family pressures that I made her like so . Earlier I was working becoz of her eating habits I resigned and I took over the full day charge when she was 1. 6 yrs old . Now the meal time is the tough time for me.
