How to encourage healthy eating habits in your toddler

DNB Paediatrics, DCH, MBBS
Pediatrician, Delhi
How to encourage healthy eating habits in your toddler

Whether you have a toddler or a teen, I believe, five of the best strategies to improve nutrition and encourage smart eating habits in kids would be :

1. Have regular family meals.

2. Serve a variety of healthy foods and snacks.

3. Be a role model by eating healthy yourself.

4. Avoid battles over food.

5. Make eating a playtime and probably a way of spending quality time with your kids.involve them in the process.

Kids who take part in regular family meals are also:

- more likely to eat fruits, vegetables, and grains

- less likely to snack on unhealthy foods

- less likely to smoke, use marijuana, or drink alcohol

 

You could Follow these basic guidelines:

1. Work fruits and vegetables into the daily routine, aiming for the goal of at least five servings a day.

2. Make it easy for kids to choose healthy snacks by keeping fruits and vegetables on hand and ready to eat. Other good snacks include low-fat yogurt, peanut butter and celery, or whole-grain crackers.

3. Serve lean meats and other good sources of protein, such as fish, eggs, beans, soya, tofu.

4. Choose whole-grain breads and cereals so kids get more fiber.

5. Limit fat intake by avoiding fried foods and choosing healthier cooking methods, such as broiling, grilling, roasting, and steaming. Choose low-fat or nonfat dairy products.

6. Limit fast food and low-nutrient snacks, such as chips and candy. But don't completely ban favorite snacks from your home. Instead, make them "once-in-a-while" foods, so kids don't feel deprived.

7. Limit sugary drinks, such as soda and fruit-flavored drinks. Serve water and low-fat milk instead.

And above all ----- Be a Role Model Yourself!

The best way for you to encourage healthy eating is to eat well yourself.!!!!

That's all for now, for my next dose(article) ...stay tuned!

Tips for helping your child stop thumbsucking:

Praise your child for not sucking.
Children often suck their thumbs when feeling insecure or needing comfort. Focus on correcting the cause of the anxiety and provide comfort to your child.
For an older child, involve him or her in choosing the method of stopping.
Your dentist can offer encouragement to your child and explain what could happen to their teeth if they do not stop sucking.

Hi there is any Best milk powder for breastfeeding mother to increase breast milk ?.

Milk production is increased by optimising breastfeeding management, rather than by using powders and supplements. If you have doubts about your supply, we can schedule a consultation to evaluate your baby's latch and your overall feeding routine.

Meaning of persistent diarrhoea is different for doctor than parents. If you have mentioned about No. motions in a day, quantity of stool, consistency, either with more water or feces, containing mucus and / or blood. related with dietic habbit. it would have been easy to suggest. Any way, if her wt is about 11 kg, you need not to worry. Give her food of her choice and sufficient quantity of water to drink insist forcing ors etc.

If your child is alert active and playful most likely he is not suffering from any disease so no medication is required. His hb and stool examination should be done to rule out anemia and worm infestation. This is very normal also called physiological anoeexia. When his body requiremment for calories goes dow. Please do not forcefield the child else he shall vomit out.

BHMS
Homeopath, Faridabad
My 40 days old daughter is suffering from cough and more of cold. Which medicine should I give her?
Hello, Give her homoeopathic medicines which are very much safe to give even to the new born babies! Schwabe’s Alpha-CF and Biocombination-11 (either make them in powdered form or else dissolve in your milk), both after every 2 hourly for 3 days. Also use Nasoclear nasal drops. Management: -Avoid exposure to Air-conditioner or cold air (wrap in a warm stole). -Give her steam in a closed room twice or thrice.

Preserve child's milk teeth

BDS, Post Graduate Diploma in Clinical Research
Dentist, Kolkata
It is always better to preserve a child's teeth till its succadenous one comes to a proper level. If there are cavities in a childs teeth go for filling or other conservative treatment as it preserves the arch lenght and maintenance of space for permanent teeth. Try to avoid dental extractions of cavitated milk teeth.

Hello, Yes you can give her well cooked minced nonveg and all the fruits, specially seasonal ones. If you have never given nonveg, try to introduces cooked eggs first as they are easily digested by the babies.
