For many parents, raising a child to a be healthy eater can be stressful and challenging. While the recommendations may be simple and straightforward, they can be tough to apply or even remember when a full-on tantrum is happening.
As you read this, first figure out what you and your partner’s parental feeding styles are. They may not be the same – and that’s ok – as long as you present a cohesive front to the kids. Then, use the guidelines as your mantra, your fallback, and revert back to them as often as you can. Perhaps most importantly, always do the best you can and remember that it won’t always be sunshine and rainbows (chances are if you have kids you probably already know that!).
