How to teach our kids to manage food:

When people find out I have a background in treating eating disorder clients, they often ask me, “How do I prevent my own child from getting an eating disorder?”

While there is no fool proof way to prevent eating disorder, as they have multiple biological, hereditary and cultural components, there are things I believe we, as parents can do, to help assist our children to learn to love their bodies, feel more confident and build resilience.

1.Nurture a positive view of yourself. Developing confidence in your ability to solve problems and trusting your instincts helps build resilience.

2. Model good eating habits for your children: don’t skip meals but insist your child clean their plate.

3. Avoid teasing about appearance. Likewise, praise your children for other qualities outside of their appearance.

4. Don’t get caught in the clean plate club trap. Teach your children to eat until they have a sense of being full.

5.Encorage balanced and flexible eating. No food is "bad".

6. Avoid dieting and diet talk. Girls and women who diet are 18x more likely to develop an eating disorder (ANAD Newsletter, Summer 2001). Focus on being healthy, mind, body AND spirit.

7. Encourage family meals, but also allow for the flexibility that maybe your child is not hungry at dinner time.

8. Teach your child do honor their body. Encourage them to respond appropriately. When they say they are full, don’t insist they “eat one more bite”. We are telling them that the signals their body is sending them are not accurate.

9. Teach your child to honor and express their feelings. Avoid telling your child, “That’s not how you feel” or “It’s not that bad”. Listen to what they say.

Often when I see clients who don’t manage food well, it is coupled with a significant distrust of their feelings, emotions and thoughts. They don’t trust their body will tell then accurately when they are full, hungry, sad or happy. They have learned not to honor their body and are open so disconnected from what is going on inside. When it comes to our children, teaching them how to accurately identify and trust their internal compass is a key component to building healthy, flexible, balanced adults.

Kids love to play with Trash Pack toys. A lot of kids, not just boys, are fascinating with the big trucks and the waste cans that they can move by themselves. A gift that includes a set of Trash Pack trucks or wheelie bins will make a child's day.

Nowadays, kids eat foods that they wanted to eat, not what they need to eat. The good thing is there are a lot of innovative mothers out there who innovate healthy foods to catch their child's attention. I am supporting those moms. As a parent, I want to see my child grow healthy. Thank you for posting some tips. Looking forward for more.

Wow! These are actually great tips for all moms out there. I remembered before, when my children are not into veggies and I'm forcing them to eat their veggies. And then I told them, in the funniest way I can, the good side of eating vegetables. It was really hard at first, but now, I have no problem at all! I pretty much used the tips here plus I invented the most convincing story that they will never forget. Moms, try this at home! Thank you for sharing this helpful article.

Kids just don't know how to manage their food on their own. We really have to do it for them at first. Once they get used to what we do for them, that is the time when they begin to learn. They remember how much they can consume and what time they need to eat. It is also sometimes better to make them hungry enough. If we keep giving food, they feel it is like work and they lose appetite.

When you are first starting out on the vegan diet, you will find yourself in situations that your non-vegan cravings start to flourish. Now this will happen to people who are vegan for a long time and to people who are just starting out, so please don't feel guilty about having these cravings because it is natural for human beings wanting to get back on old habits.

Nowadays, people agree when they hear the words fast food & nutrition in the same sentence. This is because restaurant owners responded to the food preference of the people. More and more people are paying attention to the nutritional value of the food they want to eat even on a fast food restaurant.
