Encouraging eating behavior
« on: December 25, 2020, 12:43:33 AM »
Hi everyone.

Our 4 year old is not very interested in food and tends to take a long time to finish her meal and also needs frequent promoting to eat. We have been gently encouraging her to eat faster and with less prompts and see slight improvement. She has been wanting a toy and my husband and I told her that she can have the toy when her eating improves a bit more. Although she has taken it seriously and is working towards it, I wonder whether this approach on our part could harm her in any way.
Please advise.
Thank you.
