My son is extremely fussy to have his lunch or dinner or milk.any food is consumed sheerly for the accompanying TV program/cd/game.If i put on a good cd, then food intake is a mechanical process- no fuss.I have tried my level best to engage him in activities like sticker books, join dots, painting, drawing, pizza houses/buses, happy face and numerous other things with squeezy jam..it works for 2-3 days then back to square one.Moreover, he has no interst in eating any food except fruits and lassi which he eats on his own without any fuss.If i let him be hungry even for several hours , he is ready to go hungry but will not ask for food.and then will end up eating fruits/lassi instead of meals.Please help.
Initially I used to feed my son while he was watching TV, because he would eat well due to the distraction. Then one day I was reading that children who eat while watching television are more likely to be obese and so I decided to change this. I decided he should know what he is eating and relish it and watching TV while eating prevents that.
Here is what I did and you can try these too:
This is how we trained our kids to eat and it worked for us, hope it works for you too!
