Most toddlers will eat well although they may have a day when they refuse foods that they usually like to eat. However some toddlers find meal times difficult and this can cause you, as the parent, concerns and anxiety. Learning to eat is like any other leaning process – it takes time. If your child is a fussy eater then it is important not to let mealtimes become a time of frustration, tantrums and refused food. Remember – most toddlers grow out of the problem and learn to eat a variety of foods.
* There are medical reasons why your toddler might not eat – usually either your child is constipate or anaemic so do seek advice from your Health Visitor or GP.
