The holidays offer one of “the best times of the year!” Between the food, family, friends, and festivities, there is so much I know we each find ourselves thankful for.
Inevitably amidst a season of gratitude and giving though, we parents too face a lot of stress when it comes to feeding our kids. Whether we have children who are apprehensive eaters or who eat everything, we are bound to still face holiday feeding struggles.
That’s why this week, I have partnered with Healthy Height to bring you an article on, “7 Holiday Feeding Struggles and How to Handle Them.” In the article, I walk you through the following seven common holiday feeding struggles:
Struggle 1: The Child Who Won’t Eat What’s Offered
Struggle 2: The Child Who Doesn’t Like What’s Offered
Struggle 3: The Child Who’s Hungry Right After the Meal
Struggle 4: The Child Who’s Too Distracted to Eat
Struggle 5: The Child Who Throws a Fit at a Family Meal
Struggle 6: The Child With Relatives That Eat Differently
Struggle 7: The Child Who Handle Feeding Differently
No matter what holiday meal you find your family gathered around, I provide both simple solutions as well as practical strategies to set you and your family up for a season of success (so you don’t go into the holiday season stressing over these common struggles). Read the whole article here.
There is a reason they are considered COMMON! You’re not the only one wondering how to handle all the “what ifs” of if (or more likely when) these struggles happen over the holidays. Even as a dietitian mom I face these in my own family (did you read my reflection post from last week on Thanksgiving 2017?!). That's why I am honored for the chance to chime in personally and professionally with how to best handle each of these holiday feeding struggles.
