We have all done it…begged our toddler to try just one bite of a ham sandwich. Told her that if she just tries her soup she can have another cookie. Let him have his third glass
of milk between meals because at least we knew something was going into his stomach.
But somehow the idea that one day our fussy eater would eventually grab his fork and start digging into his chicken parm with gusto just didn’t materialize. We were exhausted with the stubborn refusals and so we just gave in. “My kid’s picky,” we would say while giving him a pizza for breakfast. Or “She only eats white food,” while handing our preschooler a bread and butter sandwich with apple slices for supper.
So with all the bribing, manipulating, and yes, sometimes even threatening with no desserts and time outs –you know who you are! — we are still left feeling powerless against our tiny, food-refusing demon’s strong will and seemingly endless stamina in the ongoing battle to make her eat well.
The toddler years are notorious for trying the patience of even the most calm and loving
parents. Toddlers are striving for independence, trying to figure out who they are, and
discovering how they fit in their world. And no matter how much you may be able to control what your toddler CAN’T do, it is virtually impossible to force her to do things she has decided not to. Eating is one of the few things that toddlers and preschoolers have some control over because we can’t sit them down and force them to chew and swallow. And like most power struggles, the more we worry and play games and threaten and bribe, the worse it gets.
Are you ready to remove the battle over food, and that make your home a more positive place to be. I know you want your children to grow up having a healthy relationship with food and to eat when they are hungry and stop when they are full. That way, they will be able to become healthy, active adults who enjoy food, but don’t eat for all the wrong reasons.
