TODDLER FOOD FUSSINESS

TODDLER FOOD FUSSINESS

Toddlers can be fussy and hard to feed. Whilst a lot of people will say “children will eat when they’re hungry and won’t starve”….it’s still important to ensure your little one is eating a healthy and balanced diet. Check out some of our tips below for helping to get your toddler more excited about meal time:

Finger food

Finger foods are fairly easy to prepare and something that is appealing to kids. They can pick the food up themselves to eat and finger food comes in lots of different forms. Sweet potato fries are not only delicious but they are healthy and something a lot of toddlers love. Cut up carrot, celery and capsicum can be served with a dip that your child likes. It might be a tad messy but we can’t win all of the battles! Any sort of vegetables that your child likes can be cut up for your little one to enjoy. Cheese and biscuits are often a popular choice also.

Fruit

Rich with sweetness, fruits are a go to in my house and the fruit bowl is always full. If your child refuses everything else offered to them, turn to fruit. Healthy and full of fibre….fruit is a great option for little ones.

Eggs

Eggs are both nutritious and fun to eat. There are so many different ways to cook eggs and they are packed full of protein for growing kids. A favourite in my house is a boiled egg served in an egg cup with soldiers (cut up toast to dip into the egg).

Choice

Whilst cooking can be a tiring task, a good way to get your little one eating is to provide them with choices. By ‘choices’ I don’t mean a choice of 10 meals or even 5. But, a choice of 2 to 3 different meal options gives your toddler some control which works well.

Get Involved

Lastly, toddlers love being a part of it. Get your little one to help you with different tasks in the kitchen. Let them watch the cooking process which may in turn make them more interested in eating what they have helped to make.

Generally a fussy toddler will grow out of bad eating habits as they get older. However, it’s important for parents to instill good eating habits in the household. Eating the wrong foods, not eating enough or eating too much can affect a child’s sleeping habits so it’s important to teach healthy habits from an early age. If you feel that your child’s diet is negatively impacting upon their sleep, Sleep Consulting by Sleepy Starz can help. Head to www.sleepystarz.com/sleep-consulting/ for more information.
