You should always keep in mind that a child spent on growing only 30 calories a day. This means that he needs a small amount of food per meal, actually one-fifth of the amount that is in the bowl of the parents. So do not overdo with quantity!
The small meal for the child has multiple useful: the child can empty his plate such as adults that allows great pleasure to him. The child did not eat too much, he is satisfied, he is proud because he feels that he has managed, his mother also has these positive feelings.
But if you give the child a plateful because you think it’s better to exert pressure, surely you would eventually feel resentment. In advance you have overestimated the child that would eat too little and it will come true, and you will be unhappy. In that way neither you will be happy, neither your child even he would be overeat.
You have not think about how to proceed when it comes to nutrition of your child and here is your problem. Such a situation could cause disruption to nutrition, but also conflict between mother and child, and even lack of appetite in the child. Meal rather than a pleasure,in that way becomes a nuisance. Try to avoid all these problems.
Accept that every child to a certain extent has their own individual needs for food, which should be respected. Consider that the child would rather eat if does not feel the compulsion. Because of that, just relax yourself.
