5. No Distractions
Meals should be quiet affairs during which the focus is on eating. Therefore you should ensure that there will be no distractions during mealtimes.
Do not let your child bring books, toys or games to the dinner table. Make sure the television is switched off when you eat.
Do not allow your picky eater to carry on with his siblings at the dinner table when he should be eating. If your child gets distracted, he will want to play rather than eat his meal.
