  Help from Bao Ma:

  My family is almost three years old and will not eat for myself. I have to feed it bit by bit, and my children of the same age will eat for themselves. How can I let him learn to eat? Every day, chasing the children to feed, I am tired...


  It is not the child's own problem that the child can not eat on his own. It is often the case that the parents did not let the baby try. In particular, many parents are always worried that the baby will eat all the food everywhere. It is greasy and greasy on the ground, so it is too troublesome to clean. So I never let the baby eat it by myself. I ate it myself.


  However, for the baby, all things are never going to happen. It is a trivial matter for the baby to eat by himself. For the baby, it is a kind of independent consciousness and ability. Therefore, parents should not neglect the golden age of cultivating their baby to eat independently.


  When is the golden age for nurturing a baby to eat independently?

  In the so-called golden age, there is actually no accurate time, but the parents should be patient and carefully observed, depending on the child's growth. Because every baby is an independent individual, the development is also early and late, so parents must not be lazy to copy "others"!


  1. budding period

  That is, the baby began to show a strong interest in tableware (reference time: 10 months)


  The baby always wants to do it himself, likes to play with tableware, and he likes to grab the tableware in your hands every time he feeds. This is a good time to train your baby to eat. The independent choice of food and eating by yourself is a sign of the early personality of the baby, and it is very helpful for exercise coordination and self-reliance.


  Anutric suggested

  1Mother can prepare two tablespoons, one for the baby and the other for the child, so that he/she can practice the spoon or the stroke, without delaying the adult feeding him/her. If the baby always likes to grab the spoon, then the baby will not come to dig the food in the bowl, but will happily knock and beat with the tableware, and have more interest in eating;


  1. teach the baby to take things with the thumb and index finger;


  2. Give your baby something to eat with your hands or some vegetables cut into strips and slices so that he/she can feel what it is like to eat.


  2、 the golden period

  After the baby is over the age of one, it is the actual induction period for the child to eat his own food (reference time: 12-18 months)


  During this period, the baby's hand and eye coordination ability develops rapidly, and if appropriate induction is given, it will have a multiplier effect. Therefore, parents should not kill the baby's self-reliant learning to eat a small breakthrough because of such concerns and concerns. Let the baby try it for himself, especially when the following signs appear, parents can start teaching their baby to eat. Such as:


  ● When the baby is eating, he likes to hold the rice in his hand;


  ●Already drinking water from the cup;


  ● When the rice in the spoon falls off, the baby will take the initiative to pick up the spoon.


  Anutric suggested

  11-year-olds often like to grab their hands when they eat, and parents should not overcorrect such "no rules". Because the baby takes it by hand and grabs it with his hands, he can grasp the shape and characteristics of the food. By repeating this "hands-on" contact, the baby will become more familiar with the food and will not be picky eaters in the future;


  2 Parents should not deprive the baby of his right to eat because he is afraid of the baby's "disorder". You can use a small dish to hold all kinds of meals suitable for your baby, so that he/she can feed himself with his hands or with a spoon, even if he eats It doesn't matter if it is a mess.


  2. Consolidation period

  Develop good eating habits for children (reference time: 2-3 years old)

  The baby around 2 years old, the desire to do it is very strong, and the courage is also great. Looking at my father and mother, a chopstick and a chopstick to the mouth to send, I am not willing to show weakness, not satisfied with the "meal to Zhangkou" way of eating. The anxious baby will keep moving with small hands, rushing to grab the chopsticks and spoons in the hands of the family, and try his hand at the table.


  Blocking your baby or encouraging your baby is the key to determining your baby's future good and bad. Because this is the best time for your baby to learn to eat. Parents may wish to give him/her a spoon, a pair of chopsticks, and let the baby poke in the bowl and on the plate and send it to the mouth. The result of course is that it falls on the table, on the body, on the ground, much more than in the mouth.


  However, it is undeniable that, after the initial baby, one or two of them were sent to their mouths. They were very excited. If the parents praised a few words in time, the baby’s interest in eating himself would be stronger. Gradually the success rate can be higher. A baby who has been trained like this can slowly eat independently. Moreover, this is also the beginning for the baby to experience success and foster independence.


  What if a 2-3 year old baby does not eat by himself?

  First, parents should tell the baby that eating is to eat, to sit at the dinner table regularly, and to quantify regularly. Don't let the children develop the habit of watching TV or playing with toys while eating.


  Second, correctly understand the problem of your baby's meal, neither criticizing the war, nor worrying too much.


  Third, the dining atmosphere should be relaxed and pleasant. When eating, parents can talk to the baby about which foods are delicious and which are nutritious, which evokes the baby's interest in eating.


  Fourth, do not force your baby to eat. If the baby doesn't want to eat for a while, after the meal time, you can first remove the food. When the baby is hungry, and have the desire to eat, give him/her a hot meal. After a few times, the baby has established a new understanding: not eating well means starving, and naturally will eat on time. This method is simple to listen to, but it is not easy to do, because parents must first harden their hearts, can not always worry that the baby is hungry, give him/her a snack, then it is counterproductive.


  Fifth, the education at the dinner table is only a part of it. Parents should also consciously instill more babies' views on "good food, faster, and smarter."


  Sixth, if the baby successfully eats himself, after the meal, the parents can play with the baby for a while as a reward, let him/her produce a happy memory about eating, and will not be excluded after eating.
