More Ideas…Be flexible about letting little ones get up from the table when theyare done. Babies and toddlers can’t sit for long. Plan for three mealsa day of about 10-20 minutes each and 2 to 3 snacks of about 5-15minutes each.Offer your child a healthy snack between meals if you think she ishungry. This way if she doesn’t eat much at one meal, she doesn’thave to wait long to eat again.Limit juice to no more than 4 ounces a day. Juice has a lot of sugar.And drinking too much juice can fill children up and make them lesshungry at mealtimes. Consider adding water to the juice. Offer freshfruit instead of juice.
Your role…• Infants eat less well when caregivers are overactive and overmanaging in feeding, and best when caregivers are calm them and feed them in a smooth and continuous fashion (Ainsworth & Bell, 1969; Brody, 1956; Crow, Fawcett, & Wright, 1980; Pollitt & Wirtz, 1981).• Feeding the newborn goes best when caregivers adjust their approach to the infants timing, preference, pacing, and eating capability (Ainsworth & Bell, 1969).• Feeding requires a division of responsibility between parent and child. The caregiver is responsible for what the child is offered to eat, the child is responsible for how much (Satter, 1987).
