Mealtimes are not always fun and mothers know this through experience. Instead it s the most tiring and taxing time of the day for a mother. Unfortunately forcing food and lecturing about healthy eating habits don t work here. And this is true for all kids whether a toddler or a teenager. The trick is to help your child learn to love food rather than tutoring verbally about healthy eating habits. To do it the right way you need to discuss food with your child not just at the dining table but sometimes out of the confines of your house.
