I have written this book “Turn your fussy eater into a foodie” for all the parents who are struggling hard to make their children eat good food. Food full of nutrition.
The house turns into battlefield at every meal. With Mommy and daddy on one side and children on the other. Lots of fight ,struggle ,yealing, tantrums, spilling over…with just one thing “FOOD”. No matter how yummy you make, whatever Masala you add, however you serve …The food is not going to go inside the child stomach easily..
The “polite one bite” rule is great, but leave it : “The goal is not to get them to eat the broccoli today but to help them actually like the broccoli long-term.” The idea is to have expose them to a wide variety of flavors, my daughter now eat almost everything.”Best part of my daughter day is when she goes to Gymkhana to play with her friends. And that’s when I pack up healthy snack in a Snack box. I usually found out that when children are playing its better to feed them there.
I have heard so many stories from mothers complaining that their kid refuses to eat everything on her plate, anxiety often kicks in, leading you to make desperate offers of healthy staples you know she’ll like: “How about a bowl of yogurt?” or “Let me get you a bowl of soup.”
My daughter loves broccoli and I can simply steam or boil it, season it with a little butter, salt and pepper and she loves to eat it as finger food. She also loves it on top of her pizzas and in her pastas. I feel the broccoli soup helped in converting her to the other side. This broccoli soup recipe is delicious, easy to drink for kids and hides any pungent taste that they may dislike. Recipe to make Brocolli soup. Using this you can turn your fussy eater into foodie. If you are worried about your child’s Nutrition and health soups are the best way to change appetite.
