Older youngsters include an entire vary of different points round meals. Oftentimes they revert again to toddlerhood with their very own model of tantrums within the type of teen insurrection. This insurrection might spill over into their consuming habits.
As youngsters grow old, proceed to assemble for meals a couple of instances per week. We are able to apply the identical rules that we discovered within the first a part of this interview: mother and father present the what, when, and the place. The youngsters get to determine whether or not to eat or how a lot to eat.
One other strategy to get teenagers to eat higher is to get them into the kitchen to indicate them create nice tasting meals. Train them how flavors can change by experimenting collectively within the kitchen.
Our children be taught essentially the most by watching us, so what we mannequin is much more essential than what we are saying.
