Suggestions to please a finicky eater
By Diana Kohnle
(HealthDay News) -- Don't get discouraged if you've packed your child a healthy lunch and it comes back uneaten.
The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics suggests:
- Ask what the child would like for lunch, which the child is more likely to eat. Grocery shop together to choose appealing, healthy foods.
- Pack easy-to-eat, bite-sized lunches that your child can eat during a short lunch period.
- Make sure at home that your child can open the lunch box. Sometimes these containers are difficult for a child to open.
- Make sure you're not packing too much food. Pay attention to how much your child eats at home.
