Feeding children requires a lot of patience and a good amount of creativity and artistic talents. Make sure to add a touch of color to every meal you prepare, especially for younger children who have a penchant for all things colorful. Add some strawberries to your tot’s breakfast cereals, or put a smiley on his pancakes. You can also throw in a couple of slices of carrots to your usual pot dishes to entice the little ones to try the food out.
Making eating time fun by is another crucial factor in feeding your little eaters. Buy plates and food bows in their favorite colors or get those that have his favorite cartoon character on them. Nothing whets a kid’s appetite better than seeing Mickey Mouse on his soup!
For bigger kids, you can get them to eat the food you prepare by getting them to help with the preparation of salads and sandwiches. I bet they will have a grand time savoring every bite knowing they are eating something they helped prepare themselves.
Limiting their snacks to nuts and fruits or a few pieces of cookies would also prove ideal, so as not to ruin their appetite come meal time.
