Fussy eaters - My experience and how I'm dealing with it
I actually spoke about this on Instagram the other day and how I was struggling with Renzo at the moment. Don’t get me wrong he eats, has his favourite foods like any other child but variety is something we lack. I just can’t get him to try new foods, I do try to I know some foods need to be offered up to 20 times before little one even decides to try them so I’m being patient. Renzo, almost 2 is definitely a better eater than what Vinny was at this age which I’m grateful for and I think that having his big brother around helps for sure. He sees Vinny eating and that encourages him. And there are a few other things I do to ensure this food journey goes as smooth as possible and I just thought I’d have a chat with you about it all today.
Firstly I think being relaxed about meal times makes such a difference. If I can sense that he isn’t going to eat anything then I remain calm and continue to eat my meal. I think eating as a family wherever you can really makes a difference instead of just sitting there waiting and watching him eat. In the past with my first son I would get so worked up about mealtimes and the fact that he wouldn’t eat anything new or even try anything. We would both end up very stressed and it would honestly ruin my day or evening. I definitely feel a lot better about the situation now and I know they will both grow up to be healthy boys and will probably eat everything in sight when they’re older.
