The teachers at preschool say he’s a perfect eater. But at home, he turns into Mr Fusspot. What is the reason behind him doing this?
Obviously your child can eat fine. He simply refuses to do so at home.
Make sure he eats together with the family at the table. Remove distractions like the TV, handheld games and even phones during the meal.
Kids at this age are curious, so let them try new foods or “old” foods prepared in different ways.
Start with those that are sweet and not strong-tasting or hard to swallow. Don’t give up, and don’t force them to eat it.
