And like so many parents / mothers, I have had many concerns about my children’s eating habits. Mainly my 3 year old who doesn’t seem to want to eat?
After reading this, now I know how much children should be eating, and my expectations for my 3 year old have adjusted. I think I was trying to ‘over feed’ assuming he needed more than he actually does?
I was once told as a new mother, children will eat when they are hungry and not to force them? Don’t make it a ‘big thing’ especially if they refuse as it will only create a negative affect. Possibly have them refuse all meals and create unhappy meal times.
Anyway, good perspective in the below post by ‘The military wife and mom’.
