Picky Eating in Young Children and What to Do About it
Please join us for a live webinar on Wednesday, May 30, 2018 at 11am PST on the problem of picky eating in young children and concrete ways to prevent and treat picky eating.
Picky eating is a common occurrence in young children and there are known developmental reasons why this happens. After the first year of rapid growth, a toddler gains weight more slowly so he or she requires less food. In addition, toddlers may thoroughly enjoy one food for weeks and not touch the same food for months. When parents notice this shift in their child’s appetite, they often resort to measures that make matters worse like force-feeding or bribing. This elevates parental anxiety around feeding and makes meals stressful.
As medical professionals, we must be able to handle questions about picky eaters to give parents the proper perspective. After all, the eating habits formed in childhood, good or bad, can set the tone for a child’s relationship with food for many years to come.
• Explain the problem of picky eating in young children
• Define the division of responsibility in feeding and how this can help picky eaters
• Offer concrete ways to prevent and treat picky eating
