Hi, my daughter is 2. 11years old. She is very choosy about the food. After eating 2-3bites she doesn't eat food properly n takes more than an hour to feed her after convincing. Kindly suggest.

Hi.. U don't force the kid to eat but instead u give a gap of minimum 2 r 3 hrs later when u give food he will be hungry and he will eat don't give many choices for him to eat .. For eg: lunch time if it is dal nd rice only that don't give him something else if he doesn't eat u leave him if he is hungry definately he will eat what ever he gets i faced similar problem with my kid now he is oknow it takes minimum one wk to adjust but Iam sure he will be habituated.

Hi Sumeet, Here are few tips you can try: 1) Don’t force the kid to eat. It will only worsen the situation. Everybody need fuel to do some activity. Our kids do need. Once they feel hungry they will have. Some kids don’t eat much but until they are active it is ok. 2) Try to understand what kind of food he likes. 3) Take small portion of food. Once the kid say no than do stop there. 4) Present the food in attractive away. 5) Give some supplements of his choice. 6) Make him involve in some activity like listening to rhymes or enjoying videos or feed near a balcony or window where he can see outside. 7) As summer is at peak do give him lots of liquid in his diet. 8) Allow the kid to touch and feel the food. Its ok if he is making some fuss around until he is within limit. 9) Try to serve the food with other members of the family. So that he will learn from them and gradually generate interest to have similar food. Do give the food which elders have but in child friendly away. Don’t make spicy, serve in bit size portions. 10) Have lots n lots of patience. Do not make feeding a fearful thing to him. tr
