Having well-developed legs is what long-distance runners are known for. Unfortunately, it tends to stop there. There are benefits to keeping your entire body in a symmetrical and balanced state of development. Carrying stuff during a run is something that runners will try to avoid. Personal preference plays a large role in this decision. It is so easy to avoid overuse injuries if you simply tone your upper body and add a little muscle mass. Simple body weight exercises will probably do if you don't want to add mass to your torso. Adding variety to your weekly training is something you can do by doing these exercises. It won't hurt a thing and will only make your body stronger and more resistant to injury. Youth NFL Jerseys Long distance runners are famous for well-developed legs and then all of that stops at the waste. If your body is symmetrical, and well-balanced, there are many benefits to maintaining this type of symmetry. Most runners will not want to do anything that adds more weight to carry. Making this decision is a personal preference issue. It is so easy to avoid overuse injuries if you simply tone your upper body and add a little muscle mass. Body weight exercises are perfect for people that don't want extra mass on their upper frame. You can add a little variety to your weekly training by doing this.

dear Parents of all fussy kids, take a chill pill. Let your baby decide what she loves to eat. Apart from that KEEP IN MIND TO GIVE A GOOD GAP BETWEEN TWO BIG MEALS AND LET THEM PLAY ALOT , so that they get ready to eat the next meal. Change in LIFESTYLE HELPS!!!

Hi, I found your article very very informative and to the point. Often we as parents miss out the tactics to deal with our own kids, we can handle other poeple's kids coz they are normally given back to thier parents and you try to be as nice as possible to them, but when its your own kids you start loosing the patients and thats where all the trouble starts. I think your article is very good and has helped me to have insight upon my own mistakes on how to feed my child. We as parents never like to admit that we do make mistakes, no one is perfect. Keep up the good work and hope you give us more pratical articles like this one. Thankyou.

Hai, my daughter 12 1/2 months old refused to take any milk other than Breast feed.But she likes Butter milk and ragi/powdered oats/nesturm rice with buttermilk/curd.So doctors say it is Ok if she has curd instead of milk no prob with that.I also give banana, dry 2-3 dry grapes, little puffed rice which she eats on her own. After 1 yr , now i give her Jr.Horliks once a day, 1 scoop for 1 glass of milk with 1 sp sugar.She likes the taste adn has a bottle full of it.She is also underweight.But doc says no need to worry abt that as lond as she is active and her motor skills are good. So parents with fussy kids, dont give up , keep trying one or the other.Make her sit with u in the dining table and let her eat what ever she likes other than food with too much mirch/spice.Have a happy parenting.

i think a child after one year needs variety in foods,parents should introduce new food alternately,like one day u can give upma,other time u can give him suji idli with all grated veggies like carrot,beans,spinnach mixed in the idli batter,or rice idli too is good.what i want to say in all is that,i understand that it requires a lot of patience,lot of understanding but it can't be solved by getting horrified or crying.it's true it requires a little hardwork,but if we do it with some interest it make's a difference.

Hi! My baby is 18 moths old. she does not like eatings the solid foods, but enjoys taking her milk formular. What is worring me is that because is taking very litle of other foods she has lost 1Kg of her weight. she is now 11.5Kgs. I got some multivitamins for her, but when I consulted my family doctor I was told that Vitamins do not play a role in improving a child appetite. Now what I can I do to help my child eat enough food and remain healthy? I never beat my child, though a shout at her when refuses to take in anything.

Hi All, I'm glad to see such forum. My child is a real fussy one about eating (11 months now and weight 7 kg). She doesn't eat anything whole day. not even mil. everthing has to be fed forcefully (most of the time.. with toys, rhymes etc) I'm tired as each session takes around 1-2 hr and at the end it's so little that she just might be surviving on that.

I too used to get frustated while feeding my 14 months old child and get a hand on him, but after reading the article I realised that I can simply give him some drinks or fruits and manage his eating problems... People can try giving fruits or half cooked veges cut in small pieces and make them eat by themselves - at first they might mess up but it's time for them to learn to eat .... so try this and if he/she drinks milk prepare raggi drinks which is healthy and stomach filling too. (Dry up Raggi, other cereals, badam etc. and powder it)

Hi all, firstly Amit, i truelly understand ur's and ur wife's situation as my 30 mths old daughter also do's the same. she was a fussy eater ever since we introduced solid/pureed food to her.All she want's is her milk bottle. We have to play songs on tv to put any thing in her mouth. At times it is so frustrating that i too feel like hitting my baby as a easy resolution.but its not. i do not blame ur wife as a horrifying abusive mother like many people here. i know and belive that no one else can love a child more than a mother and she does it only because she is concerned for the child's health. but dear friend hitting won't resolve the matter... she may be eat after hitting but this will make her scare and hate food even more and also defencive for her self making her more fussy and angree. i feel u should talk to ur wife calmely and lovingly... and tell her when ever she feel frustrated just take a deep breath and remember the movment she had a first glimps of her baby after giving birth. i do this when ever i get frustrated while feeding my daughter. hitting is no resolution. try giving her favourite meal 1 time a day, my daughter likes plain cooked rice so i cook that for her along with it keep trying to introduce new food to her. mostly child do not accept any new food untill 10-15 times they were served to them on diff days. we have our meal choices and so do kids. don't worry if she is nt eating all her meals regulerly as long as she is eating one or two meals properly a day. remember a child will never starve her self. she will ask for food when she will feel its not forced on her and when she will really hungry, give her alternatives like biscuites, cornflex and other healthy snacks. Don't ever keep the child away from her mother like few pople suggested here.SHE DON'T NEED ANY HELP OTHER THEN U. talk with her and don't blame her as it can make her depress thinking she is a bad mother which she is not. Participate with her in feeding ur kid. me and my husband does the same and out of 10 we get success 7 times. hope my view will help u and ur wife. cheers and remember u both are a very loving parents.

forcing a child to eat is totally wrong because we should think of a child as human being we were childern once too , as parent I have the same problem with my three boys 6years,18months and 2weeks the 18months the worse he is eating nothing except his fomulla but I know form my instincts he is gonna be ok .Because every thing takes time nothing just hapens suddenly be patient after sometime it gonna be ok give your child freedom of choosing his or her own choice instead of give them what you like or dislike child is a whole humanbeing is has the right to choose his or her food choice .

I have a almost 13 month old baby girl. She has had feeding issues since she was three or 4 months old. Up until now she has been eating 3 to 4 jars a day of baby food. In the last few days it has gone down to one or two jars a day. And she is still on formula but only eats 9 to 12 oz a day. She doesn't want to really drink any juices that are given to her or milk. I think she is just tired of the baby food but when I offer her stuff that we would eat, she'll either eat one or two pieces of it or nothing at all. I use the food processor to make the food smaller. She doesn't really know how to chew. I am also not Indian so I know nothing of the foods you're acustomed to. I just needed help and I was hoping to find someone who could help. I want to give her finger foods but what do I make for her and since she does only eat a few pieces what am I to do? I am going nuts with worry here. She is not even in the 5th percentiel for weight or head circumferance. So if there are any suggestions please give them to me. We even go through all sorts of entertaining while eating and it works sometimes and other times it doesn't. And I don't believe in forcing her to eat but at the same time I want her to gain weight and be healthy. Otherwise she is a bright and forever happy baby. As far as the guy who wife abuses their baby. That is so wrong. What kind of parents are you? What were to happen if one of these days your wife really looses it. You're no better than her bc you know that this is going on and yet you let her beat your defenceless baby! She is a baby!! As frustrating as it is at times being a parent who's child doesn't want to eat but you NEVER hit a baby or anyone for that matter. There are so many people out there that want children and can't have them and there are people like you who sit there and abuse them.. Please get help for yourself and your wife bc you really need it. This will scar your child for the rest of her life. I just want to cry for your dear baby. Please find someone to help you.

I am a stay-at-home mom too - and I spend all day with my 14 month old daughter (well, till my husband gets home in the evening). I was brought up in India and while I admit that spanking a child is more tolerated in India (I was spanked too) I am really shocked and surprised at how easily you are able to "forgive" your wife's behavior. Most Indian men are brought up to believe that it is the wife's job to cook, clean and bring up the child. As long as the men are able to provide financially, they have fulfilled their responsibilities. Unfortunately, this system is more suitable where you have the good fortune of being able to have the support and help from immediate and extended family, neighbors and friends and ofcourse (relatively) inexpensive outside help. This is not the case in the West for any Indian (and other immigrant???) families. In which case it is upto the husband to help (in and around the house - washing, cleaning, all the chores that "the female" is expected to do in India, and helping with the baby). Perhaps you think that since you are "working" all day at the office, and your wife is at home - she is really not "working" - so it seems unlikely that she is tired!!! Believe me being with a child all day is a very very tiring (and often very frustrating). AND there all those other things to do around the house. You should spend a couple of weaekend with your daughter (and let your wife have a good rest). After that - you decide - is it really as easy as it seems. I believe that you are able to tolerate your wie's outburts because it seems to easier to convince yourself that she does it out of love rather than having to deal with the situation and your daughter yourself. And I think your wife is very very angry and unhappy. She needs to vent - and she is doing it too. Unfortunately - on the one person who is not capable of fighting back. Perhaps, all that anger was really meant for you???

Living in the U.S, people here take a very relaxed approach to their child's eating. They don't worry; they allow their children to eat whenever they are hungry rather than forcing food down their throats and it seems to work. Children here healthier. As an Indian, I know it can be hard for you NOT to force feed your child, but if you look at American children, you will see for yourself that children to not need to be forced to eat. Their tummies will tell them when their hungry. Here children feed themselves from about 18 months on. Relax, Indian moms! The more you force food into your kids months the more they will hate food.

well, this is true that we shouldn't force feed our children. But I think its true as long as they are babies...as babies know how to take their reqirement. But once they are toddler then they tend to become choosy eater. Sometimes they won't eat a balanced diet either. So that time may be we should force them to eat a balanced diet....I am talking about quantity...I am talking about quality.

well, this is true that we shouldn't force feed our children. But I think its true as long as they are babies...as babies know how to take their reqirement. But once they are toddler then they tend to become choosy eater. Sometimes they won't eat a balanced diet either. So that time may be we should force them to eat a balanced diet....I am talking about quantity...I am talking about quality.

My son is 15 months old and drinks about 6 oz of milk only when asleep or I have to spoon feed him the milk. He has been fighting me on eating his meals. I dont want to force feed him but he will not eat if I dont. He is skinny but the doctors say he is ok??? How do I help him eat his meals without fighting him? I try not to get mad but everyday it is a fight. Any suggestion will be great. Amy2818@aol.com

Here in America children, starting from one year of age, feed themselves using a spoon or eating finger food. No one has to force them to eat and young children actually enjoy food and ask for it when hungry. I think Indian children HATE eating because Indian PARENTS FORCE their children to eat. Small children have small stomachs and can only eat a little bit at a time. But surely, when they are hungry, they will eat. American parents know this and allow children to pass up on a meal when they are not hungry. They know that they will come back and ask for food later. Indian children have been force feed for so long and associate food with having it force fed into their mouth so that even when they are hungry, they don't want to eat. If children needed to be forced to eat, why do children here in America eat much healthier than INdian children?

I am the mother of a 2 year old and we are going through the "feeding fussy" as well. The doctor says that most toddlers go through this and are too distracted to eat. My son throws fits at meal times because he does not want to eat. When he does this, and makes things difficult, he gets a time out in his room for a few minutes. After his time out is up, we all continue eating and leave the option open for him to join us and act non chalant about the whole thing. Most of the time, he will climb up in the chair by me and sneak in a few bites. He is still drinking his milk really well and I have started giving him one can of pedia sure to give him the extra's he is missing. I think as parents, we worry so much that our child is under-nourished and turn it into a big issue. Patience and time with them works better than force and anger. Cool heads will prevail!! Good luck everyone!

Dear Amit, When I read your comment I really feel sorry for you and your wife. parenting is a very hard job, no one I guess can say they did a perfect job on it, we make mistakes and we learn from it. There are very good websites eg like parenting.com that may help you and also there;s a book called 'super baby food'. I hope being all alone in Germany is not taking a toll on your wife. And remember that the way you are treating your daughter is going to effect her personality in later life, remember she is just a baby.

My 7-Mth old daughter used to drink a small amt. from the bottle when asleep, now she fights away the bottle no matter how hungry she is. She started having eating problems since she was 2 months old. It has been a struggle since to get her to take a bottle or even breast feed or eat solid foods. I don't know what to do anymore. I am frustrated beyond belief. I even got appetizer for her and that only works for a few days. She is at least 5 lbs underweight. Somebody please help me. No one has eating problems with a child this young.

Hello Amit, I feel for you that although you came to this website to ask for help, you got a lot more of emotional trauma on top of it. I am confident that your wife loves your child with all her heart, otherwise she wouldn't care if she has eaten or not. But being alone in Germany, away from her family who are probably in India, takes toll on her. Please make her stay more enjoyable and comfortable and give her something to look forward to at the end of the day when you get home from work. If she is happy and content through the day, she will definitely be more tolerant towards the tantrums of your daughter. Meanwhile, please discuss and develop strategies to avoid hurting your child. May be you can feed her what she appears to like, instead of forcing her to eat whatever you have cooked that day; You can take up few feeding sessions,giving your wife a break or even eat out together and let your child explore new foods. COnsult a nutritionist, if you must. Love your wife a lot and spend quality (non-feeding sessions) with your child as a family so that you can all get past the unpleasantness involved during those meal times. I can tell that you both love your daughter a lot and i know you will overcome this because of that love. Take care and God bless your family.

I have 15 months old son. I really did not have much problems with him . As he is becoming independent he does choose his timings for doing things like eating , playing etc. SOmetimes we do feel that he is not eating but then next day or late in the evening he will eat plenty. What we have done since he was born is we have setup a routine for him. When he was 0-6 months we fed him every 3 hours and never between that. And then slowly started adjusting as he grew old. That way he is aware when is his meal time ( and more of he is satisfied with food) else he will have to wait anothe couple of hours. And he does has his favorite snacks ( and those change on weekly basis) and we try to give him that. But we tend not to force feed him if he is not willing. If he does not eat for loger duration we make sure to check if something is bothering him.. upset stomach , fever etc. And for Amit from Germany .... man you need to be friend with your daughter and do not let your wife hit her...One thing it will not help anything second you and your wife might as well go to Jail for abusing child. Try giving her milk once or twice a day and see if it improves her apetite ( rather she doesnt thing eating as Stigma) . If you are woried about her health try giving het pedia sure once a day to make sure she is getting her nutrition. Being a parent you need to have patience else consult the support groups in your area for postportem ( Hopefully I am spelling it correctly) problems and act before it is too late.

This comment is to Amit. I am appalled that you are resorting to hitting a child to get the child to eat. My child is 2 yrs old and has started to really make mealtimes a chore and we do all the things you mentioned, TV, dancing etc. She also holds food in her mouth, turns away, spits etc. My husband and I get very frustrated but we would NEVER, ever, ever, hit our little girl. We stop when it she downright refuses. Have you talked to your doctor, as your daughter maybe fine interms of weight. Also from what you say, she is cheerful and active the rest of the time. You have a responsibility as a parent to protect your child, hitting her is NOT doing that. Please stop now. Such behavior on the part of you wife is VERY wrong.

Firstly to Katie, thank you for taking on Amit. Amit you should be ashamed of yourself in even allowing your wife to continue caring for your daughter, your wife's treatment absolutely disgusts me. You cannot force a child to eat especially one that is so young. How dare you or your wife put your baby girl through this. A child will eat when it is good and ready and no matter how much frustration a parent goes through in trying to feed a baby/child no-one has the right to physically abuse them. I am a mother of three and my first two kids were great eaters and still are however my 9 month old baby is not at all interested in food but I would never never think about beating her because she won't eat the food I am offering. Child Abuse is unforgivable and you and your wife should be looking for some help. Please, please do not allow your daughter to be harmed again.

Is anyone else concerned in regards to the German email from Amit in reference to his wife and the frustration that she is taking out physically on their baby. I located this web page upon concern of my daughter's fussy eating habits, which at 12 months has been reduced down to almost consuming zero amount of food. However in regards to the abuse that this man is reporting I am absolutely shocked. Amit, there is no excuse and it is completely abnormal to hit a baby. I understand that many people find a smack of a school aged child acceptable but you are talking about a defenceless little baby and actual beatings. You have every responsibility to stop this immediately, I actually felt ill reading your email. I understand the frustration and have found that there are a large number of actions that you can take to overcome this child abuse. Your wife needs help immediately. Is there someone who can take over feeding the child perhaps just once a day, maybe a lunch time. Are you able to leave work earlier to perform the dinner feeding chore to give your wife a rest. Is there child care or a relative that can assist in caring for your baby once a week. Meanwhile, your wife should leave the room for just a few minutes when she feels she is losing control. The treatment that you are descibing is shocking and I hope you never leave your child alone with your wife again. What type of parent walks out and leaves their baby to this abuse each day, do you not love your child. Perhaps your wife was abused when a child and is re-enacting this history of mistreatment. This is wrong ,your wife seems unable to control her behaviour which means you must now be completely responsible for your child. I would shudder to think that you would even leave the house knowing that this performance is occurring. What type of people are you? Get a grip and realise that this is a baby, a completely defenceless little child who has only you to protect her. There is absolutely no reference in a definition of love that describes beating or violence. The child is only eating out of fear. What a pathetic way to teach a child to eat. You are both grown up adults and have no excuse.

My 14 months old daughter is a fussy eater. While feeding her my wife has to take lot of efforts. We have to keep her busy with something (like TV, Toys or I dancing/making faces infront of her)to make her open her mouth for us to put something in. However, that is not the end of it. She keeps her mouth full with what we feed her for a long time and then finally spits out that was inside. This she does almost 90 % of the time. Otherwise she is very active and cheerful. There is one more peculiar thing about her. She NEVER demands for food. She simply comes to her mom and starts sucking her thumb, but when offered food she turns her face away. We have to almost always force-feed her. Also, she ALWAYS drinks milk with the bottle while asleep ONLY. Otherwise she won't drink milk. We are staying alone and whole day my wife has to take care of her only. Sometimes my wife gets irritated/frustated and beats my daughter. But beating I mean literally slapping hard on her face, hitting with fists. She cries like hell, coughs while crying and then vomits whatever little she had eaten. Then my wife hits/beats her more severely till her who face is red and she is full of tears. But this she does only in frustation. My wife later regrets that and cries too. I am in a state of dielema. The only advantage we get of that beating is that after beating when she stops crying, she quickly eats the bowl of food that was meant for her. But I think that is not the right way of doing/feeding the baby. Please advise how should I/we handle this situation as we are very much troubled. Please don't mistake my wife because she loves my daughter very much and does that beating only when extreemely frustated. Hope you all will understand. What should i do? regards, Amit

Both of my kids may be little less in weight than the prescribed chart but still they are intelligent their mental growth is good so I am really happy and I suggest you all to think in a positive way and make meal time a happy occasion for the kids.

I have a daughter of 18 months and although I have started introducing solid foods to her at 10 months she still prefers her formula. She does eat cereal and yogurt and the odd dish of pureed fruit. But she can't live on that alone. I've tried introducing cooked vegetables and finely chopped meat and potatoes and such, but all she does is pay with it and throw it on the floor. Or if we're lucky enough that she will try it, she chokes and gags to get it out of her mouth. The doctor says that she seems healthy enough (because she's a chubby baby), but I feel she's still not getting any proper nutrition and the doctor has not provided me with any advice as to whether I should wean her off the bottle or how to help encourage my daughter to eat. I'm at a loss here. If any one can relate to my situation, I'd really appreciate some advice. Here's my email address: tackaberry@yknet.yk.ca

I am so frustrated with the whole medical establishment. My 15mo old daughter is small, for her age, she does not walk, however she is very active,social and happy. She eats very little and is on a liquid supplement 3xper day. The GI doctor(who is Indian by the way) wants to place a G-tube in her and I have overtly refused. Does anyone have this problem, and I would like to learn more about this LIVE52 ayurvedic tonic that was mentioned by one of you. thanks, Ana's mom

Even I was facing the same problems as all you friends out there. Then I consulted my child's doctor, she asked me to give him LIVE'52. Its a ayurvedic tonic, available at all chemist shops. You can give one tsp mor & eve. This will increase his appetite & it is good for their growth. It tastes also good.

I read the article on your website,i feel the article does inform the parent not to get into these tug_of_war situations of child not eating and mother forcing, running behind the child.i am a mother of a three year old child ,i have noticed over these years that if i maintained a time schedule for her feeds then the issue doesn't aggrevate to such an extend.when i say time schedule i mean giving the child their food in time (this has to start from breast feed to later stage).if as parent i saw to it that she got her feed/food (special attention to be taken to give food which she likes)at the correct time she has a positive attitude towards eating.

kopal,i too faced the same problem when my daughter was15 month old. she was very adumant and never sleep without breast milk.Atlast i was advised by our doctor not to give her milk even she demands or cries.she will cry a day or two then she will leave. i didn't believe this first. we feel somewhat tough topractice ,but after 3 days she left it completely,as per doctor said.Now she is taking whole milk.

hi geetha i have a four year little girl.i have felt just like u all did until 9 momths back. cos until then i always forcr fed my littlegirl. then i could not take it any more. so i stopped doing it. for about two months i increased the intervals between meals from 3-4 hrs to 4-5 hrs and gave half of what i usually feed her. i can hear many moms gasping, how could she do it. believe that is the best thing i have done as a mother. my daughter now is haealthier( well not weightwise but habbitwise) and eats on her own and has enough food that is she eats what is enough for her . we a s parents also has to understand that little tummies can only have little amounts. children can eat only so much as to satisfy their hunger and not the quantities we want them to eat. listen in any relationship compromise brings out the best result. the best u can do for a fussy eater is,let them feel little bit of hunger so that they enjoy food rather then hate it.

I read in your article that you shouldn't force feed your child.But when you don't feed them, they have to remain in school for 4 to 5 hours without having anything in the morning, how can they stay strong and concentrate on lessons.I have a 4 year old kid.Making him eat his breakfast is a big problem.Previously he used to have more quantity.Now he has reduced the quantity and I have to feed him.He is not eating on his own.This is my second problem.Someone have to feed him meals or else he wouldn't eat at all.Even then dinner or lunch time is around two hours for him.Can someone suggest how to deal with him.My mail id id geetha.g@in.bosch.com

My grandchild of 15 months has never put anything in his mouth. He will not eat anything unless from a spoon. He won't eat a cookie or put any food in his moutheven when left on his tray at meal times. Can anyone help? The doctors don't seem to think it's a big thing. I have never seen a baby not want to put things in their mouth. Thank you for any input. Email me at Puuwali@aol.com

I have 2 children.the baby eats better than the elder one.however my elder one has certain foods only the\at he likes and others like potato that he does'nt.moreover he cannot tolerate hot or warm food.sometimes fear or sometimes a cartoon on t.v. makes him eat ,i know that is not a good habit but les intake will cause lack of nutrition and that makes him tired and weak soon.

Kishore, you can try giving him all the foods that he likes for about 2-3 weeks, even though they may be unhealthy, and then gradually introduce healthy but tasty foods. It worked for my son.

Your article says that I should not forcefeed my child, but it is easier said than done because as a parent you cannot watch your child not eat a balanced meal.
