Often children are reluctant to eat food and parents force them to feed them in order to provide full nutrition to the children. The parents themselves decide what and how much to feed their child, and if they do not do so, then in this situation the parents are forced to feed the children.
If you also do something like this with your children, it may cause the following harm to your child:
- Children take food out of their mouth or vomit when eaten without their will. The child may not like what you are feeding. Children refuse to eat things they dislike.
- Many times we feed the children even when they are not hungry, due to which their hunger dies. Forcing children to develop negative feelings towards eating.
- Consuming healthy food inadvertently can lead to wrong eating habits in the child.
When you feed your child forcibly, it can cause children to lose control over their eating habits. Due to forced feeding, the child may start eating less instead of eating more.
If you want your child to eat properly, then you should also sit down with him. Be patient while feeding the child something new. If the child is distracted from eating, then try to bring his attention back to the food.
Feeding of children is very patient, so you have to be patient for the right development and nutrition of your child.
