If possible try and eat food with them. Give them food in your plates and not their usual small plates. This makes them feel like adults and once they start eating you can play a game of ' who will finish food first' ? All kids love playing this game and in this way they finish the food too.

Vishesh, looks like you guyz have tried it all :) Great! @ Dhanya, how is your son now? The ideas presented here are really good! One of my kids' friends @ school is an extremely picky eater. Planning to share these tips with the child's parents.

Picky eaters are a common problem for most parents. My son used to selectively eat only rice and throw away veggies. However hard we tried, he would simply not touch vegetables :( My wife and I then decided to make soups from veggies and also added it in dosa batter, stuffed them in the form of cutlets etc to get him to eat. He is a bit better now.

Kids need a lot of convincing when it comes to food. So you can play some games with them or try recite them a story or poem while eating. Once you can grab their attention they will start eating properly.

Some children need entertainment while eating just like adults. The problem might not be that your child does not like food. So put on their favorite cartoon or their favorite show. Try this, might work.

You can try giving your kid new or different dishes everyday. May be your kid is bored of same type of food everyday. Try giving sandwiches, fruit salads or soups, its good for health also.

If your child eats non-vegetarian food give them chicken, fish or fried eggs. Kids love it. But do not make habit of giving too much non-veg food. Give them vegetables and fruits also.

Presentation of food also can matter to some kids. So present it in a way they will like it. Serve some salad with the food, they might like it.

Feed them only when they are hungry. Don' t feed them after every hour because if their stomach is full they won' t eat however tasty food you make. Once your child is hungry he/she will eat the food properly.

i used not to eat food often so my mother used to feed me after 2 2 hours. it is a good method actually. because kids play alot so food gets digested early.

Do not give them same dal chawal everyday. They also get bored of it. Try and make something new for them. If they like pizza or burger, don' t buy them from outside. Make it at home and they will enjoy it.

Kids generally love what is in the plate of adults rather than what is served to them. So you can also serve yourself your child' s food and pretend to eat it. Once he/she sees you eating they will also start eating without making any fuss.
