Getting hungry will require food – The nutritionist points out some misconceptions when parents adopt this approach

Raising anorexia always makes parents extremely stressed. Therefore, there is now a way for the mother to tear each other, which is to wear hungry children will demand food. However, nutrition experts said many parents have misunderstood and misapplied this rule, affecting the development of children.

Many parents wonder whether to leave hungry children demanding food  ? There are a few other tips for children to drink milk or grumble and share: “I also use the way to children fasting, thinking that children eat better but not. As children do not know how to hungry, but fasting all day, but also refused to eat, pity the mother gave up before me so. 

Many questions, concerns, and directions revolve around “Are you hungry and are you really hungry?” However, whether parents really understand and follow the principle of “Ignore hungry children will eat their own child.”

Misunderstanding and leading to wrong practice to wear hungry children will require food

Most parents understand and make the wrong way to “leave hungry children”, we simply use the wrong word to lead to our behavior is not correct. There are currently two misunderstandings and lead to two misconduct as follows:

If there are too many young children do not feel hungry (Illustration).

1. “To wear a hungry child” is misunderstood to have children run out of energy and not provide food for children. There is a problem that you forget that children do not know or do not know how to express how hungry they are. In addition, children also forget very quickly if the child has something to fill the mind of the child, such as Ipad, phone, games … This does not recognize the child’s hunger, losing internal energy, but Operation is normal. The results give you the feeling of “Why are not children hungry”. But this “hidden” energy loss for a long time will affect the growth of children.

2. “To wear a hungry child” is misunderstood as leaving the meal for the child and adding more snacks and drinking milk supplement. In this case, the child does not recognize any signs of hunger, even the child feels like “winning mother with a boring meal.” Oh, there are still meals! As a result, children do not need to eat at the main meal. The mother becomes impotent in managing the baby meal.

The practice of the principle “to wear hungry children will demand food” is true

“To wear hungry children” should be understood as “teach children to understand hunger”. This means an educational strategy, rather than a “wait-and-see” action. So what do you need to teach your child to understand the signs of hunger? There are 3 ways, depending on the case you only need one way, but sometimes have to combine 3.

1. Keep the meal between 30-50% of the time between meals

Many of you said: “It does not work because it does not eat, so 5-6 hours is not eaten anymore”. In fact, this approach has its own purpose. It aims to find time to excite children to eat and also to provide opportunities for children to show signs of hunger. The first time will be a bit extreme but you will be happy when the child reveals signs of hunger. It is not always appropriate to wear one time or to skip meals as usual.

Keeping the distance between meals is also a secret.

2. Leave food around the play area

This way is quite effective for children who are hyperactive and upset when sitting on the table and eat less meals. You prepare 2-3 food items around the area or play. However, it should be noted:

First , the type of food to avoid is candy, fresh water that should be easy to handle baby foods such as pancakes, rice rolls, fried eggs, nuts …

Secondly , we agree that: these meals are mini, so it needs to be selected and moved up to no more than 8 times a day, each only lasts 30-40 minutes, when you move up remind you remind children know What are the present and where to stay?

Again, a bit too but worth doing. If you are not at home, you can get help from a maid or grandparent.

Third, do not put the baby to eat all the things you move up, let your child find signs of hunger and decide the amount of food.

3. Waiting until accepted

This will be appropriate for children who have seen the food refused or intentionally run away. I used to have many cases where the children use a lot of tricks to avoid parents like gagging, demanding to go round, shook his head tilted to see the spoon or prolonged long meal. The problem that children encounter often is not prepared to accept eating. There may be a lot of reasons such as playing, watching TV or simply bored sitting at the table and sometimes not prepared psychological changes. The effective way to “wait for the next turn” will break this psychology is easier than you think.

If your child is opposed to eating meals with a fierce or strategic (joking), stop and serve food, waiting for the next turn. How long is it recommended? Wait at least 40 minutes and call your baby back. Remember a rule that: There is no need to argue with your child in this situation. The more argued, the better the child wins and the more anorexic.
