Hi there,

I have been having a lot trouble getting my 2 1/2 year old son to eat healthier. I know this is a common problem for all parents and I was wondering if anyone had any advice on what helps? Or any examples of solutions where they have achieved the impossible- of healthy eating for their kids. Any ideas for help would be very much appreciated.

Thanks!

I personally don't have that problem because from when my 13month old started the solids, I introduced the fruits and veggies. When I go food shopping, I don't buy any junk food. Because when my son is at home he eats healthy and when we go visiting everyone seems to give him junk food, so he still gets his fair share. So try minimising the amount of unhealthy food, tell them its good for them that if they eat it all they have desert or have what their having for a snack. so in other words use it as a treat. I hope its some sort of help.

Nope, he is not allergic to anything so far. He just doesn't like veggies' taste.

Thank you

Your child may have some gut related issues. Does he/she have food allergies?

Hi Sarah,

Thank you for the reply. My kid just hates veggies. Sometimes when I ask him to eat some broccoli he just starts to scream. And also absolutely no carrots. It's easier to feed him veggies with leaves. Do you have any advice for feeding broccoli and carrots?
