- Stick to regular mealtimes. Routine is reassuring for young children.
- Keep servings small and offer more if they are still hungry—large portions can be overwhelming.
- Use colors and shapes to make the food fun and attractive.
- Try to make mealtimes fun by involving your toddler with meal preparation or chatting with them about the colors and textures of the food.
- Be positive. Talk about one of their favourite interests at meal time. Don’t comment on how much they are or are not eating.
- Offer new tastes gradually. One at a time and in small amounts.
- Try not to rush mealtimes as some toddlers eat very slowly.
- Eat together as a family as much as possible. Toddlers learn just as much by watching what you do, from table manners to savoring food and trying different things.
- Encourage them to feed themselves, it might help finger foods be accepted more easily. You can deal with the mess later.
