As parents or caregivers, you decide:
• What kind of food we serve to our child
• What time of day are we serving food
• the place where the food will be served

Your child decides:
• among all the food that is serve, which ones are worth eating. And which are not appealing, and can be rejected by saying no or by showing tantrums.
• how much should I eat.

Start feeding your child in small amounts and let them re-ask if needed. Your child will respond according to his need.

Occasionally, your child will starve and eat a lot. And will eat less when not much Hungry. This is normal. If your child is not hungry, do not pressurise or bribe him to eat or to finish the meal.
If you have any questions about your child’s development or hunger, talk to your doctor.
