Your toddler will start showing some eating behaviour that may be challenging. Keep in mind that it's normal. Your toddler may:
Eat a lot one day and not much the next.
Refuse to eat a food that they have always eaten before.
Want to eat the same food every day for a week.
Be easily distracted and taking a long time to finish eating.
Play with their food.
You can help make meal time successful.
Let your toddler feed themselves. Let them try using a fork or spoon.
Never let your toddler eat while running around. If they sit while they eat, it will help prevent choking.
Never force your child to eat.
Make meal times fun!
Be a good role model. Eating healthy foods yourself will make your toddler more likely to want to eat them too.
Have set meal and snack times; don't offer food on demand.
