My kid who is 4.6, is refusing to eat food on her own. I tried somany times. She asks me to feed, if I say No she skips her meal, which makes me to feel sad, and again I endup in feeding her.
Only poori she eats her own.
Please tell me the tips to make her to eat her own.
Thanks in advance.
very important thing to keep in mind...if a child knows that you will give in after a while, she will never do what r asking for.
give her more of finger foods and small-chunk foods, which she doesnt have to tear/break to eat. give her in a way that she has to only pick up and eat.
for example, if u r making the chapati, you can cut it into small diamonds after rolling it out and and then put it on tava. or u can cook it and then use pizza cutter to cut into small chunks.same with idlis, dosas.
if possible, avoid items like oopma, poha, something that she has to eat with a spoon for a few days.( you should target one skill at a time and right now, your target is independent eating.)
