Feeding your child forcefully can destroy their natural appetite

Most moms and dads (especially mothers) always feel no matter what their child eats is never sufficient!

If you set a platter of food in front of your kid and he doesn’t eat, or only eats a few bites of food, it can make you anxious. Is he having enough food? What if he is hungry?

Out of this we start force-feeding our child. Study has said that children normally don’t eat much. They eat much less than half the calories that a grownup eats and consuming less food, as long as it is nutritious, can in fact make humans live for a longer period! This is, of course, not an explanation to control your child’s food source. But you can be confident that if your child normally has a gentle appetite, this may assist him live a longer and much healthier life, as long as the meals he is getting is nutritious.

Parents should undoubtedly understand that forcing a child to eat kills his natural hunger. If your child can manage this natural sense of eating when he’s starving and ceasing when he’s not, he will have a highly effective weapon against the lifestyle of leisurely eating that he will experience when he is an adult.

Adults with food hatred often track their hatred to a time when an adult compelled them to eat a food item they did not like. Experts observed that 72% of adults who were compelled to eat a food when they were kids said that they forever refused to eat that food items, for the rest of their lives!

We all as moms and dads must comprehend one thing, no one wishes to stay hungry. Even our kids! We obviously feel anxious if our child is doing something that we think is unsafe, like not eating sufficient. We must assure ourselves, that in all but the most rare of cases, children will eat ample food to make it through and be healthy.
