Here`s a look at six common mistakes parents make when feeding their children
1. Sending Children Out of the Kitchen: It is understandable that parents don�t want children close to hot stoves, boiling water and sharp knives. But studies suggest that involving children in meal preparation is an important first step in getting them to try new foods.
2. Pressuring Them to Take a Bite: Demanding that a child eat at least one bite of everything is likely to backfire. Studies show that children react negatively when parents pressure them to eat foods, even if the pressure offers a reward.
4. Dieting in Front of Your Children: Kids are tuned into their parents� eating preferences and are far more likely to try foods if they see their mother or father eating them. Parents who are trying to lose weight should be aware of how their dieting habits can influence a child�s perceptions about food and healthful eating.
(Neatness or cleanliness), proper arrangement of things, proper replacement after use, maintenance of his own things or equipment, knowledge of preparation of foods-cooking, knowledge of trees around him, reading, culture, environment, respect towards parents, teachers, friends, relationships with parents relations and others in society etc etc However there are many thousands of other higher faculties in the top layer of humans, such as management, Engineering, Nutrition, Health and so many thousands of other faculties like Inquiring Brain. These childrens brains are unfilled with many other essential faculties.. When it comes to reading these children have no interest for reading.
5. Serving Boring Vegetables: Calorie-counting parents often serve plain steamed vegetables, so it�s no wonder children are reluctant to eat them. Nutritionists say parents shouldn�t be afraid to dress up the vegetables
6. Giving Up Too Soon: Eating preferences often change. Parents should keep preparing a variety of healthful foods and putting them on the table, even if a child refuses to take a bite. In young children, it may take 10 or more attempts over several months to introduce a food. Sources:
