The Child Has Difficulty Eating?
hello, my child is 13 months old, before it was difficult to eat he ate heartily and a lot a day 3 times, but recently he only got 4 days of eating it was difficult, eating rice didn’t want to just take a few mouthfuls, I tried to cover it but still didn’t want to eat , only 2 mouthfuls, after that afternoon and evening I don’t want to eat, what should I do? even though I let him hungry and didn’t give him milk but still didn’t want to eat, I was confused what to do …
Children become difficult to eat often and it is a difficulty experienced by mothers, often occurring at the age of the child from 1 year to 3 years of age. It often happens that children start to be picky about food. This condition can be something that normally happens or because of a special condition that causes the child not to eat, such as:
a child wants to teethe canker sores, swollen teeth, cavities / toothache pain in swallowing due to sore throat due to a bacterial infection or a viral infection is bored with the food menu, has a stomachache or is constipated To determine whether your child has a health problem or not you should have more tests continue your child's condition directly to the pediatrician. It will be advisable to do additional tests such as blood tests, if deemed necessary. To overcome this, several things you need to pay attention to:
often offer different foods a few hours after eating before, don't force children to eat or finish their food by force, provide food with a varied menu, avoid giving children snacks or snacks that can make your child full and make it difficult to eat the main meal, use cute cutlery and attract children's attention following articles that you can read about how to treat children with difficulty eating
