How to get your child interested in nutritious food

  1. Everyday at a certain time, sit together to eat. As the child’s social skills will increase, so will the family-bond. At the same time, the baby will be interested in eating.
  2. Encourage the child to eat by himself. Even if he/she leaves food around and make a mess, he/she will gradually become interested in food.
  3. Keep the child with you while cooking or shopping. Explain him/her the nutritional value of any food in a story. Shop by asking what food he/she wants to eat.
  4. You can grow vegetables on the balcony or roof. Take care of the tree with the child and collect vegetables from the tree with him/her.

  7. Encourage the child to drink enough water.
  8. Encourage the child about ‘mindful eating’. For example, when offered a piece of apple, praise it. Tell the story about how wonderful the taste and color of the fruit is.
