How to get your toddler to eat better

Most parents realize that mealtimes become more difficult as their toddler starts getting more independent, and are left wondering: What are the best foods for toddlers? Although frustrating, fussy eating is a normal phase, and will most likely get better with time, do you find yourself struggling with your 3-year-old when it comes to food? Do you run after him/her? Are you anxious about what to feed, how to feed, when to feed and ask yourself repeatedly, ‘Where am I going wrong?’ Are you getting anxious about mealtimes?

Hi @sikha!! liked the blog. very informative tips. I m dealing a very tough time with my 30 month old son, till now he does not know how to chew. He swallows everything. And he dont want to feed himself. I hv to feed him everything. i hv tried to make him feed himself by putting the plate in front of him, and observe him . But he doesn't eat. Initially he will take some interest in picking up some food and taste it. But d next moment he ignored d food.

Thanks Tejal, Yes dear, you can apply these things after 12 months cautiously. Here, I have tried to give list of food items. You chose dishes out of them and can prepare your list according to your child. For nuts - try kheer and porridge, take 50gm peanut + 50gm almond +50gm Cashew and grind them, and you can sprinkle a little bit into it. Check whether your child likes the taste or not. start boiled Rajma in small quantity like finger food. kids love to eat like hen, they love to pick the food and run play eat and come back to do the same.
