HOW TO FEED A FUSSY TODDLER
It is very common for parents to notice a change in eating between infancy and toddlerhood. Often children around 2-3 years change their eating behaviour. Fussy or selective eating is a normal developmental process and a sign that your child is starting to learn how to assert themselves and have some control around their natural environment.
Parents can become worried that they are not feeding their child adequately. Children have an amazing ability to regulate the amount of food they need and it is important to remember that they will grow and develop at their own pace. When thinking about eating and family mealtimes there are roles that both the parent and child play.
