    • Feeding Your Children

      As your child grows up to an age of 2-4, it is easier to feed them food. You must think I am crazy but it is true. Many parents have difficulty in telling the children to eat vegetables, meat or any kind of food. They worry about their weight gain. However you will find children have no problem eating candy, chocolate and ice cream. Sweet and colourful.

      What is my secret? When a child is above 2, he or she will understand what you say to them. You have to speak in their language. You want them to eat green vegetables, introduce POPEYE. POPEYE eats spinach. Associate all green vegetables with spinach. You want them to eat chicken, introduce them to Chicken Little. Fish, Nemo. Pork, Piglet. Sometimes you don’t even have to find cartoon that is similar to the food.

      I tell my gal, you want Tigger milk tonight? She recognized Tigger and she will be happy to finish all her Tigger milk. So be creative and cook your child, Mickey Pasta, Donald Rice, Mermaid Noodle, Barney Soup and Piglet Sausage. Besides naming your food, the food also have to be tasty & colourful. It works, try it! :good:

    1. Oh,such a good idea!
      I’ll try it for my son as he hates veges and fruits, but all the candies, ice-cream, jellies and fast foods are his super favour.

    2. Er, what if the kid is extremely sensitive to animals. If you said eat Nemo fish, she will cry ‘cos she will be eating Nemo! Then how leh? *scratch head*

    10. Tried that with Zara.. even cut tuna sandwich out using cookie cutter and made eyes and nose and mouth with raisins.

      She just said, “I don’t want. Zara only want egg sandwich”.

      She only wants to eat what she likes, anything that she doesn’t.. no matter how creative I try to be, using different names or decorating the food, she won’t touch means she won’t touch..


    11. What a good idea. Going to try that when Brae is fussy on his food. Thanks.
