From obesity and picky eating to sugar addictions and eating disorders, kids may develop a variety of unhealthy eating habits if you’re not careful. To help your child develop a healthy attitude toward food, create rules and establish healthy habits. Be a good role model and get proactive about influencing your child’s meal and snack choices. Include children in the food activities to encourage children to try new foods and also to gain self-confidence.
Serve finger foods such as meat or cheese cubes, vegetable sticks, or fruit chunks. Foods cut smaller are easier for children to handle. Do not force a child to eat. Children often go through food jags.
Whatever tools you use, remember that it’s important to help your kids have a healthy attitude toward food by being conscious of your own eating habits and how you talk about food. Building a healthy attitude starts when they’re young, but the benefits will last a lifetime. ReachOut Regular family meals can help kids develop a healthy attitude towards food, and it also gives you a chance to role model healthy eating patterns. Family traditions based around meals, such as a Sunday roast, can help children develop positive memories with food. Buy or prepare single-serving snacks for younger children to help them get just enough to satisfy their hunger.

They are also more likely to eat foods (namely, fruits and vegetables) they pick from the store (or garden) or help prepare. Maintain structure for meal and snack times.
“There is no amount of cajoling that will help children try new foods in an emotionally and behaviorally healthy way,” says Amy Isabella Chalker, an R.D. who specializes in children’s healthy eating habits. “Instead, present children with a wide variety of foods from meal to meal, and they’ll ultimately learn to eat what is served.”.
