Fussy Eaters - Transcript

Many parents know how frustrating it can be when children are fussy eaters. This is a common issue and research conducted by Haliborange shows that one in two parents will experience fussy eating at some stage.

The good news is that most children will outgrow the problem and there are tips that you can use to alleviate the issue, but before you do, check that the child is not ill and that this is the cause of their lack of appetite.

  • Try and eat meals together as a family and avoid distractions like having the TV on.
  • Allow your child to interact with food and eat with their fingers if they want to.
  • Get the kids involved in helping to prepare meals. Let them touch and feel vegetables for example.
  • Let them help prepare the weekly shopping list – get them involved in the supermarket locating fruits and vegetables and placing them in the trolley.
  • Mix fish into fish cakes to disguise the fish.
  • If you are serving fish make sure you offer something kids enjoy at the same time.
  • Blend vegetables into tomato sauces for pasta.

Despite these strategies, there can be moments where nothing works and it can be difficult to ensure your kids get all the nutrients they need from their diet alone. Vitamins and mineral supplements can help bridge the gap.
