Children can regulate their appetite, learn how to trust in them


Follow the link below to read a fascinating article on portion sizes and how children respond to the amount of food presented to them. In a nutshell, without interference, children have the ability to respond to their own body’s regulation and appetite, allowing them to eat as much as their body needs. All we need to do is create an environment that lets them do this in a manner that supports their growth and development. It’s no wonder that the family meal turns out to be the perfect dynamic place where children can gain access to good food, learn & practice self feeding skills, exercise will & independence and build wonderful trusting connection. What do you do if things aren’t going smoothly during meal times? Connect with me and I would be happy to see if I can help.
