10 Tips for Dealing With Young Picky Eaters


4. Portion Size

Have you ever gone to a restaurant and lost your appetite because the portion you were served was excessively large? Some adults get overwhelmed when they see food portions they cannot handle, and kids are no different.

When you are serving your child a meal, make sure you consider portion sizes. Young children only have small stomachs.

If you serve them more food than they can handle, they are likely to recoil at the idea of having to eat such a huge quantity. Remember that if your child is still hungry, he can always have a second serving. Hence there is no need to put so much food on your child’s plate.
