Eating Problems:Teaching your child to eat right
2007-05-19
Name: Editor Often, it appears as if health, like many other things, runs in the family. This is because children model themselves on their parents, picking up eating habits, posture, and mental attitudes-whether healthy or unhealthy-directly from them.

Stomach tuck is not a cure for obesity. I wouldn´ t recommend it for anyone.

First things first get him off all the junk food. This not only involves eating out but binging on biscuits and other snacks. Keep an eye on him as he´ s probably going to eat junk food out of sight. Introduce healthy snacks. Cut down on the fatty food. Try the natural methods first, make him exercise daily.

Do you think its possible your son does not chew simply because he does not need to?
You yourself say you give him almonds and everything mashed up. Of course he never feels tje need to chew and is not interested in eating anything.
Mashing is needed only during weaning. Once your son is eating solid foods there is no need for you to mash food to give it to him!

Depends on the duration of your tour and which part of Europe you are touring. Ensure that your stomach has your fill, look out for fruits to munch on. I guess breakfast is never a problem to avoid the meat so have a really heavy breakfast. Try to eat salads and have starters like soups. If all else fails make your own sandwiches once in a while for lunch.

Hardly a problem. I bet she doesn' t have to contend with excess fat.

Subject:  Fussy eater
I have a 3 year old son who is a fussy eater.I mash the rice, pulse ,vegetables, chesse and almonds together and give it to him at lunch and dinner time. Also I have give him mashed/pureed fruits, juices, yoghurts and weetabix.
But my problem is that he does not chew his food. Soon he will start going to school. So how will this habbit change?

He will never ask for food. The whole day he can stay hungry and go without food. How should I change his habbit?

For a three year old mashing isn´ t actually required, though suggest diets like oats porridge. Semi fluid and highly nutritious.

This is quite strange. I wonder why you have tried to handle this yourself for so long. I think you should consult a doctor at the earliest. And mashing food generally makes it even more unpalatable.

I enjoyed reading the article very much. But I wish to add one point. We are slaves to our taste-buds. Making healthy food taste good as well is the key to getting children to eat healthy. Moms should learn some ways to spice up roj ka khana.

That was an extremely well-written and useful article. However there are opposite problems as well. I know this girl who only likes vegetables and fruits! She never touches sweets, junk food or meat. Some times even this can be a problem practically speaking!

So, she likes only fruits and vegetables. How does that bother you?

If you want to stuff your stomach with sweets, junk food and meat (read dead animal carcasses)that IS a problem.

But why should some one else liking fruits and vegetables be a " practical problem either to you or to that person" ?

I agree its not too good to be too healthy either. Where´ s the fun in life if you miss out on all those culinary delicacies. Moderation is required yes but thats all. Always two side to a coin I guess.
