Parents always seem to worry about what their kids are eating. Sometimes kids can be very picky eaters. Sometimes they only want to eat junk food, or they don’t want to eat anything at all. There are some things that you can do to make sure that you are raising competent eaters, so that a problem does not develop. Make sure that you introduce your child to a variety of foods. If your child does not like a certain food make sure to reintroduce it at a later date. There are other things you can do as well.
- Competent eaters trust their bodies to let them know when and how much to eat.
- Competent eaters know how to eat sweets and other non-healthy foods in moderation.
- Competent eaters aren’t scared or ashamed to eat any type of food.
“Competent eaters like a variety of foods and enjoy learning to like new foods.”
