The kid does not eat

Science has proven that taste preferences are caused genetically, and even identified the genes responsible for some people love to dishes with bitterness.However, when it comes to the younger kids, it is not genetics determines the further formation of taste and the family with its possibilities, habits and inclinations.The initial flavor experience acquired crumbs still in utero when ingested amniotic fluid, the taste depends on what products to use mom and she drinks.If the preferred bitterness or spicy, the unborn baby is to expect the same and even more so if the breastfeeding mother's preferences are saved.Momma, keep in mind, smoking adversely affects the child's appetite!By the way, up to 6 months give the baby the breast on demand and up to this age do not offer juice and puree.

first year
Feeding behavior is formed from an early age, and it is in this period laid the taste preferences, and the procedure for the meal.This should be taken into account, making the diet crumbs.Even a small chi

ld does not care how and in what form the proposed food, what are its taste and aesthetic quality of the atmosphere in which passes meal.The kid can positively respond to the sweet, salty and negatively - by a bitter and sour.Children who have a reduced sensitivity to bitter prefer vegetables, sour - eat more fruit.
significant role in shaping the appetite plays a lure, which starts in two steps from 6 months.The first stage is given vegetable puree, then porridge and 7 months joins meat sauce.If the child is initially on artificial feeding, the feeding of up to 3 months is carried out strictly through;3.5 hours, or 6 times a day.With 4 months entered juices and fruit puree, 6 months - porridge from 7 months and breast meat sauce goes 5 times a day.With the lure during the first year of life the baby gets new products and dishes from them.Those kids who are breastfeeding, complementary feeding is easier to adapt to than bottle-on mixtures of standard content and monotonous taste.

Mama tricks
to 4 years in taste affect the parents and especially my mother - that she loves and, therefore, prepares the child eats.Generates taste: smell, texture, structure and appearance of the food.
odor and appearance of ready meals trigger mechanism of the digestive system and can initiate it or, on the contrary, slow down, if they do not correspond to the perception of the child.Then appetite somewhere disappears, and the baby becomes lethargic, moody.For example, the same cheese with grated carrot, served in the bright crumbs dish in the form of stars or pyramids attract the child's attention more than a shapeless mass.
Consistency of food that entered the child after 7-8 months, is a liquid, semi-liquid, viscous, thick and solid.Homogenized food given to 4-6 months, puree - 6-9 months, and krupnoizmelchennaya - somewhere in the 9 months and older.With 1.5 years you can give your child boiled meat, chicken, burgers, meatballs, fish without bones, and side dishes to file separately.If a new food is not perceived mother should show patience, perseverance, and to offer it again, thus changing the shape, color and smell.

combination products necessary for the formation of a wide range of taste, this is achieved by a good appetite, the digestibility and the saturation of the body of the child complete proteins, fats, carbohydrates, fiber and vitamins.The composition of the dishes can be single or multi-component - 2-4 components, as well as combined, for example, fruits, dairy products or meat with vegetables.
Natural flavorings in reasonable doses and combinations increase appetite.Prefer bay leaf, dill, parsley, celery, onion and garlic (up to 3 years last 2 components are trying not to give fresh, only in complex dishes, heat treated), ground cumin.But with burning spices and pepper worth the wait!

all counts!
atmosphere in which food is consumed, is also very important.If the situation at the table nervous, then lunch with dinner does not bring joy to a child.Toddler necessary to encourage eating, and not force.Do not surround the child during the meal toys, do not read books, do not turn on the TV, do not attract the animals, do not laugh (it happens!) - All of this distracts and slows digestion.
life skills at the table, too, contribute to the formation of a good appetite.The sooner a child learns to hold the spoon, fork, knife, the less problems with feeding.

kid to three years must already hold a spoon carefully, to the four - fork, and in the fifth year of life, it is time to acquaint the child with a table knife.Believe me, do not be afraid, children easily learn new skills.Of course, the knife in the children's unit should be special - with a rounded edge.Well, introduce your baby to need napkins as soon as possible.
beautifully presented food causes positive emotions in children and form a conditioned reflex, which is especially important if the child is no different heroic appetite.All
feeding regime - not the last component of a good appetite.At the age of 4-6 years old baby to feed 4-6 times a day in small portions.The food in the main meal should be at least three things: first, second and third.

Originally from childhood
Currently, despite the large range of products, there is a decrease in their consumer basket, which is due to social, economic and psychological reasons.Most of the children due to congestion circles, computer, TV set does not have a clear diet, rational composition of the menu, which is replaced by high-calorie, carbohydrate and refined dishes.Of course, the easiest way instead of soup, cereal, dairy products, feed the baby and chips, french fries, crackers, pizza and drink sweet soda liquid ... Unfortunately, children with great pleasure to eat "bad" foods, which, however, is easily explained. Thethe composition of most of them are so-called flavor enhancers - chemical compounds that stimulate the taste buds. But the use of such food violates the natural mechanisms of digestion and leads to diseases of the gastrointestinal tract, decreased muscle mass replacement with adipose tissue.

As little children consume dairy products, the source of the mineral calcium is suffering bone system: curved spine, broken posture, bones become fragile, slowing overall growth. A surplus of fast food, tomato sauce, black coffee helps to further eliminate calcium from the body.
increased carbohydrate contentin the diet leads to obesity and diabetes, especially if this has a genetic predisposition.
negatively impact on the child and the excess of salt in the food, leading to fluid retention, oxalate salt formation and disruption of blood pressure regulation mechanism.These children - candidates for the development of metabolic diseases, uric acid diathesis and hypertension.It turns out that most diseases are not only teenagers but also adults from childhood ...

sad picture!
important to shape a child's love of vegetables and fruit - health factors and prevention of obesity, diabetes, anemia, constipation and other diseases.
Remember, children are very impressionable and suggestible.Therefore, it is not necessary at them to talk about favorite and least favorite dishes, and it is better to explain the benefits and harms of a product, and then a lot of problems with the food will disappear by themselves.So, the correct and rational child nutrition - the key to health and rest of parents.
