Small child

5 simple steps to bring up a nigga


The topic of food has already been raised hundreds of times. As the world worlds mothers complain about small eaters. The mother's heart trembles at the thought that the child ate too little. Pharmaceutical companies have already captured and used this fear. You can buy it at any pharmacy a wonderful specimen, after which your child will not only miss the whole dinner, but will also ask for additional.

When I first heard the radio advertisement for such a measure, I was speechless. Here are another ones easy solution to a serious problem. You believed? If not - like me. There are no easy solutions in the "parenthood" mission.

An effective pill to improve a child's appetite does not exist, just as it does not exist (which is a pity!) A pill for mother's loss of appetite. No dietary supplement can fix what we ... spoil ourselves.

Yes, many mothers every day (I wrote mothers on purpose, fathers usually have more sense about feeding children) effectively spoils your child's healthy appetite and teaches disastrous eating habits. All in the name of love.

If your child is healthy, you and your attitude are the main cause of your appetite problems. What miracle? Well, the following examples will illustrate the topic and give food for thought. I used some of the mentioned recipes in my time, being quite successful.

I was on a great path to closed education for culinary experiments. As young mothers are reluctant to listen to someone else's advice and wisdom (I know from experience), I offer you anti-advice. I bet many of you will find something of their own in them.

1. Feed.

For common sense, feeding should be a way to raise a chubby sweet tooth. It happens, but often it works exactly the opposite. The child should eat 4-5 meals a day, meanwhile, as statistics show, he eats much more. Record holders reach 12. How come? Banana, rice wafer, biscuits, apple, fruit puree - these are all meals, and not some seem like an unimportant snack. Snacks between main meals should be a second breakfast and afternoon tea. I have a lot when I give crisps, cakes, sticks and fruit to my child, and I don't notice at all that the toddler just got something to eat. When they give the child soup in thirty minutes, he eats three tablespoons (because of a stomach filled with corn chips or another "tiny" delicacy), and mom grabs his head saying "he doesn't eat anything". In this way, the child "stuffed" with low-grade snacks, refuses a healthy meal. Eater!

2. Don't let your child get hungry. Force to eat.

You didn't let your child snack between meals. You put your favorite vegetable soup in front of your child, and instead of losing his appetite, he plays, washes his hands and rubs it on the table? Of course, you might think that he is simply not hungry, but you are the mother - it's been three hours since the last meal, so your treasure MUST eat. Here are included: "planes", "for mommy", "bird flies", TV (the sight of a staring toddler who unknowingly eats dinner is not so rare) and in extreme cases feeding "by force". The child is full, the mother is calm. Another thing is that in this way we give the toddler to understand that eating is fun / torment. Many of us give up "circus" when feeding children. And it would be enough to set aside the soup and try it in an hour. The "fasting" method not only effectively encourages the child to eat a meal, but also makes the child eat more of what is valuable and healthy.

3. Provide only what the child certainly likes. Tell him your culinary prejudices.

Do you know children who eat only a few types of food? The menu of many kids consists mainly of sausages and chicken soup. This is just an example, it could very well be a pate sandwich and pancakes. Many children, although they do not appear to be malnourished, are such a species of ungulates. For nothing in the world they will not put a new dish in their mouths, so they get only what they certainly like, and their diet is very poor. How can this be achieved? It's easy. Start by expanding your diet. When you give your child a new dish and it winces and spits, stop trying. Only serve familiar flavors. Don't give what you don't like. Because it's not good, after all. Of course you can do it differently. The fact that an infant grimaces when taking a completely new dish in his mouth is completely normal. Overcoming this situation does not require sweetening / salting / seasoning or complete withdrawal, but your patience. Give a bit of novelty when serving dinner. Broccoli rubella was everything for my daughter - plasticine crushed in her hands, a hat, a toy - everything, but not food. By the time. When it overcame, it turned out that boiled or steamed without the addition of salt broccoli was her favorite vegetable. Buckwheat pancakes served for a long time as filling the gap between the feeding chair and the sofa. Today they are a delicacy in any combination: sweet, vegetable, meat. Can be! But not with the pill, but with work and patience.

4. Serve the juices. Without limits.

Thick, puree, sweet as a slice of juice. Just health. With this statement one could argue, considering the composition of the most popular, nevertheless many mothers give the child puree juices without restrictions, I believe that "good never is too much". Well, it happens that you can overdose. Puree juices act as snacks - they clog. Do not be surprised that your "eater" did not eat dinner, since he had a few glasses of drink thick as soup from the morning. Give up completely? No. Dose wisely. And pay attention to the composition - the amount of sugar may qualify the product as a sweetness, not a healthy snack.
