You want to make sure your child is getting all the nutrients they need but….
Regardless of whether this is your first or fourth child, trying to get your child to eat something they don’t want is never fun.
There is a lot that goes into feeding your kids but frankly all you want is to know they are getting everything they need and will grow up healthy? All while not tearing your hair out every night – is that too much to ask?
Mealtimes can be totally overwhelming.
You feel like you have tried it all but it’s all just left you tired, confused and overwhelmed
So instead of being that cool confident parent where your child eats whatever you serve up, most mealtimes look like this:
X You spend time and money preparing a healthy meal for your toddler – only for them to refuse it all, yep even the bits you through were ‘safe’ foods
X You want to just ask them to try things – but you also know that pressure is at mealtimes is bad. So you are left guessing how to react and feel like you are getting it wrong every time.
X You spend 40mins at the table waiting (HOPING) for them to put any of the food they are smooshing all over their clothes into their mouth.
X You try to find the right balance between serving up foods you know they will eat and trying to get them to try something new – only to be up making them toast 30mins later because they refused it all.
And all of this leaves you feeling worried, anxious and frustrated because you are never thought YOUR mealtimes would be this tricky.
Does this sound familiar?
Good News. You are not alone, In fact it sounds like every parent I have worked with.
Sure, on the surface mealtimes sound easy, until you are in the trenches you don’t understand the nuanced steps to be able to:
+ Have calm and relaxed mealtimes every single time, so you or your child don’t even up in tears.
+ Keep up with your child’s every changing preference and introduce them to new foods with ease
+ navigate the world of nutritional requirements and what your growing child needs to eat (and how to get them to eat it)
+ Help your child develop a good relationship with all foods and create neutral associations with them all – yes that means they love and eat veggies just as much as snacks and sweets.
When you have the tools and the strategies in place mealtimes can become easy and stress free and most importantly adaptable.
