serving less food


Lately, I have been getting a lot of this look at mealtimes. It says, "Another meal?! How much of this do I have to eat before going back to playing?!" As someone who loves to cook (and feels like I do a pretty darn good job of whipping up amazing, healthy meals), this is a hugely frustrating part of parenting. My son will eat anything per se. He's not picky...he's just not into eating. So what's a parent to do? Well, my typical reaction is to say, "come on, just finish X", or "you need to take 5 more bites". But an article I just read provided an 'a ha' parenting moment: Serve less food and let your children come back for more. Hmm. Stay tuned....
