Parents with picky eaters often feel envious when they see other children eating various dishes with relish. However, parents must not blame or force them. Only by understanding the reasons why their children are picky eaters can they guide them to accept different foods. There are many dangers to babies being picky eaters, and it is often the most troublesome thing for mothers. Let Doudehui introduce to you the dangers of babies being picky eaters. 1. Poor resistance, easy to get sick. Babies\’ partial eclipse will affect the intake of certain nutrients too low or too high, which can easily lead to a decrease in the body\’s resistance, making them prone to getting sick. 2. It may cause malnutrition. A partial eclipse in a baby may cause malnutrition. Because the baby\’s diet structure is unreasonable and the seven daily meals are not matched properly, the baby\’s normal development cannot be ensured. 3. The physical development cannot keep up with the baby\’s partial eclipse, which will affect the baby\’s weight and height. Compared with babies of the same age, it will be significantly lower, and even affect the baby\’s physical development. 4. The choice of food that restricts character development will also affect the child\’s character development. Babies with a partial eclipse will easily develop character defects, which will cause the child to have bad emotions and hinder future character development. 5. Affects the development of intelligence. A baby\’s partial eclipse will affect the development of his intelligence. Because the baby\’s partial eclipse makes it difficult to concentrate, his intelligence level is lower than that of ordinary babies. The most common question asked by “picky eaters” parents is: Why are their children always very picky eaters? In fact, it is not that the child is having a tantrum or deliberately not cooperating, but that the secret of development is hidden. For omnivores, they can eat a wide variety of foods. Although this allows for a wider range of food, it also comes with a higher risk, that is, eating the wrong food may lead to poisoning. Therefore, when omnivores are young children, they stick to their parents all day long. They eat whatever their parents eat and learn what they can eat and what they must avoid. After they are separated from their parents, they will only eat these foods. Only when they are fully mature will they try new foods that they have never tried before. Picky eating is related to childhood eating experience. Similarly, the same is true for humans. The tastes that have been tried before the age of three will become accustomed to it when they grow up, and there will be no resistance; on the contrary, if they have never been exposed to the taste, they will grow up. You will resist it when you are older, and it will not be until you are twelve years old that you will gradually change and want to try \”new\” tastes. Therefore, whether a child will be picky eaters is actually closely related to the enrichment of food in early childhood. But parents don’t need to worry too much. It doesn’t mean that the child is already five years old and picky eaters are hopeless. It means that more time and energy must be spent to slowly guide the child instead of forcing the child. Regarding picky eaters, there are three very important factors that are often ignored by us adults, resulting in constant conflicts at home. Let us understand them one by one. Secret 1: Over-sensitivity to oral touch In addition to taste, food also has \”texture\”, which is how it feels in the mouth. If a child is overly sensitive to touch in his mouth, even a little rough feeling will make him feel uncomfortable, and he will become resistant to foods with more fiber. It is as uncomfortable as eating sand, and of course you will instinctively want to vomit it up.It is recommended that parents wrap their fingers with gauze when brushing their teeth, just like brushing a baby\’s teeth, but instead massage it on the gums to reduce oral sensitivity and help children accept different foods easily. Secret 2: Overly sensitive taste. Some people are overly sensitive to taste and can detect even a slight change in smell immediately. As a result, if there is a little bit of bitterness, earthiness, or astringency in food, they will become resistant and unwilling to eat it. Just like when we eat tilapia, we rarely steam it, but braise it, because we are worried that it will contain a trace of earthy taste and affect our appetite. At this time, you can choose some green vegetables with a light taste to make the children willing to try green vegetables first; or use seasonings to mask the special taste of green vegetables. First, let your children find their favorite kind of vegetables, and they will become more and more willing to eat vegetables. Secret 3: Poor tongue roll When we eat, in addition to biting and grinding the food with our teeth, we also need to repeatedly roll the tongue to turn the food into a \”food bolus\” so that it can be easily swallowed. If the child\’s tongue movements are not dexterous, it is easy for the food bolus to be incompletely formed when eating vegetable leaves, leaving a \”little tail\”. As a result, the child will choke as soon as he swallows it, and of course he will not like eating vegetables. At this time, you can help your children chop the vegetables into small pieces, or choose vegetables with a crisper texture so that they can easily bite them off, which will make them more willing to eat vegetables! Only by understanding children can we help them, rather than force or threaten them. Treating picky eaters requires more attention and guidance from parents. Don\’t blame your children and make every mealtime a battlefield. Even the most delicacies in the world will be tasteless. Please take your child to go grocery shopping with you, or go to the farm to play. This will help him learn more about vegetables and make him love them more. Of course, he will be able to let go of his guard and start eating vegetables!
