Structured routine is important

Dietician and Pampers® Institute expert Claire McHugh offers advice on what you can do to deal with fussy eating habits.

Make sure that your toddler gets his meals and snacks at regular times each day.

This ensures that they have a good appetite at meal and snack times.

Try to limit the amount juice offered and restrict milk to a maximum of 500ml/day.

This will ensure that the child isn’t filled up and will have a better appetite for meals, advises McHugh.

Praise him when he does eat his food but don’t give too much attention to food refusal.

In many cases all the fuss created when food is refused can encourage this behaviour.
