Re: 3 year olds eating habits

Kids love choice. Also, you have to look
at their diet spread out over say a week's
time. Surely, if your child is not liking
the texture of fruit, you can make it into
juice or popsicle like treats. I had those
little popsicle makers or you can even
freeze juice in an ice cube tray and
children like to suck on them. I used
to teach in a nursery and we would freeze
chunks of banana and grapes. Kids LOVED
those frozen grapes especially. Also,
little plates with tiny amounts that
represent choice is a good tact. They may
only want the tiny piece of cheese that
you set beside the single slice of apple
or they may find they like the combination
of them both. You can also put fruit in
things like pancakes to develop a taste
for it. Often plain yogurt with some
mashed up fruit like berries is a treat
too. You child will also enjoy watching
you enjoy fruit so will learn to see it
as a treat.

Me, my tact which worked at home and still
does, is to buy fruit and keep it in a
bowl on the table where it looked special.
We all ate fruit from the bowl and as my
daughter grew up, the bowl contained snack
boxes of raisins and after school her friends
and she could always find the bowl on the
table and would head to it immediately.

Mostly, do not fret, kids seem to cycle
through likes and dislikes. The most important
thing is to limit the junk and soda and other
processed foods.

best wishes,


ps. Your child is beautiful~!
