Make Peace at Meals

“Feeding children should be a shared responsibility…

the parent or caregiver is responsible for WHAT, WHEN and WHERE; the child is responsible for HOW MUCH and even WHETHER.”

Child of Mine: Feeding with Love and Good Sense

How to Get Your Kid to Eat – But Not Too Much

by Ellyn Satter, RD, MSW

slide9

Feeding Children Well - Ellyn Satter, RD, MSW

  • Children will eat
  • Capable of self-regulation early in life
  • Generally react negatively to new foods but will usually accept them with time and experience
  • Parents and caregivers can either support or disrupt this process of self-regulation
slide10

Food Preferences and Acceptance of New Foods

  • Repeated experiences with new foods increases both infants’ and 2-to-5-year-olds’ preferences for those foods
  • Tasting new foods promotes increased liking and eating; looking or smelling is not enough.

- Leann L Birch, PhD,

Center for Childhood Obesity Research

Pennsylvania State University

slide11

Adult Responsibility – Create the Right Start

  • Offer wholesome choices - plenty of color and a variety of nutritious foods
  • Provide pleasant, supportive environment for structured meals
  • Use age-appropriate setting and utensils
  • Stand aside and trust the child to regulate their energy intake

slide25

Family and Cultural Influences

  • Mother’s nutrition knowledge and health awareness

  • Mother’s likes and dislikes
slide26

Other Influences

  • Exposure to new foods (10 to 15)
  • Portion Sizes: 4-5 year olds are losing the ability to self-regulate; they eat what you put on their plates
  • Rigid control backfires
slide28
