And what catches their attention is something that is unique and different from the ordinary. It works the same way with food too.
Don't we all know how difficult it is to get a child sit at the dining table and enjoy his food? Although they look adorable with their noses up in the air saying "NO', as parents it is important that we ensure that they eat nutritious meals regularly. At the same time, they seem to relish the junk food available outside, tasty maybe, but not very healthy.
So how do we achieve this exasperating and impossible task of making meal times fun for children? Treat them to fun-filled, delicious and nutritious food in various colours, shapes and textures. Ensure that the food is not messy and very easy for them to pick up and eat on their own and relish the different tastes.
