2 Year Olds Don’t Want To Eat Rice?
I want to ask, my child is 2 years old, I don’t want to eat rice, whether it’s porridge or what to do, I don’t want it. So if you’re hungry, you only eat sweet bread and sweet tea.
Goodnight Mr. Ipal Simangunsong. Thank you for consulting HealthReplies.com.
The most important nutrition given to children is to meet the nutritional needs of carbohydrates, proteins, fats, and vitamins. Some other additional substances that are also important are fiber, calcium, and antioxidants. Nutrition will be very important for optimal development and growth of children so you should pay attention to food needs adjusted to the following substances.
For rice the main ingredient is carbohydrates. Carbohydrates are very important as one source of energy. The need for carbohydrates can be met from a variety of other foods besides rice which also contain high carbohydrates in the form of bread, potatoes, flour, cereals, and pasta. Can be tried with other types of food first with the same content. And in some conditions you can try mixing rice for example with noodles and see the reaction of children if they can prefer to text on the rice.
Consider the nutritional needs and control of body weight and height as one indicator of good child growth.
That's the thing we can say. May be useful. Thank you
