The way young children are fed may be as important as the food offered

to read Apr 1, 2021

Infants and young toddlers can naturally regulate their energy intake. The way they are fed is an important experience that can influence their intake and food choices later in life.


Infants should be encouraged and reassured when trying new foods, but not overly pressured to eat them. Allowing young children to respond to their internal cues of hunger and fullness may help them establish healthy eating habits right from the start.
