9 Pretty Simple Toddler-Feeding Strategies Parents Should Know About

2018.05.16 697

You kids are growing up and what you always wonder is how to get kids to eat well. Some toddlers are very picky and hard to please. They tend to play more and eat less and that’s what you parents are concerned about.  Here are 9 pretty simple toddler-feeding strategies from HappyMom.Life that are working in our houses and hopefully in yours too.

 



Start The Day With Real Food


Breakfast is one of the easiest meals of the day for feeding a toddler and can involve minimal “cooking”. Think low-sugar organic yogurt, whole grain bread with peanut butter, homemade oatmeal, fruit, and eggs.



Make Easy To Eat Foods 


At age one, kids love some types of food he can hold and feed himself: whole green beans (steamed from frozen), red pepper strips, roasted carrots, bananas cut into strips, pieces of whole grain bread, etc.




Make Dinners The Whole Family Can Enjoy


Don’t cook for toddlers, cook for the entire family. And you can give him some lesson in dealing with things around at the same time. Experts suggest parents shouldn’t show their focus on kids, they should give them an equal treat as other family members instead. This way kids will learn to grow together, learn how to be sympathy, not grow in his own way.




Season To Your Taste, Then Show How Much You Love It


Parents should always season his food to their tastes so it’s not bland “kid food”, and then taste and show him how much you love it. Once kids see parents eating it and tries it, he can be hooked into sophisticated adult food.




Make All-Natural Sweet Treats


Lots of parents don’t have time to cook all-natural things for kids. They prefer buy kid’s foods that taste absolutely for kids. But after all, they are all processed foods that will hamper kid’s digestive system so far. Just filling off your all-natural strawberry yogurt pie and freeze it into small, peel them off and keep them in a sealable container in the freezer;  your kid would love it better and your time will surely be under control.





Smoothies Are Big In Flavor


As long as the flavor is balanced and not too bitter or sweet, smoothies are a great way to load on the nutrients for kiddos.




Eggs For The Win


If your kids love eggs, it’s a good news for you. Eggs are easily to be cooking as a treat for kids. It can also be best source of nutrition for kid’s brain development.



Opt For Homemade Versions Of Kid Foods


Most kids or toddlers love fries. Instead of restaurant or frozen fries, parents can make homemade oven fries, hand cut potatoes with olive oil that are baked in a hot oven until crisp.



Be Patient & Keep The Faith

According to a survey, it takes kids at least 7 times to accept a new flavor, often more. So instead of assuming kid doesn’t like a type of food, you can think of it more that your son/daughter hasn’t tried it enough times. If parents continue to make real, delicious food for toddler and eat it together, he’ll enjoy it in the long run. And sure you parents don’t need to sweat the small stuff.
