Complete Nutrition for Fussy Eating Kids

March 31, 2020

Kids Nutrition is very important because it is directly linked to all aspects of their growth and development factors which will have direct ties to their level of health as adults. Thus their Physical wellbeing & Cognitive wellbeing depends completely on what they consume as a Child.

However, while the feeding the children, the most common issue everyone face is “Fussy Eating”

Fussy eating is usually characterized by:

  • low dietary variety,
  • unwillingness to eat either familiar or novel foods, and
  • problematic interference with the parent–child relationship.

These behaviors are very common in young children up to 3-4 years of age, and thus they are reported as Fussy eaters. If their Fussy eating is not controlled & not given proper attention too, then it may exceed up till schooling and furthermore years leading to many nutritional deficiencies & interference in growth & development of the child.

Fussy eating can affect children’s nutrition intake and dietary quality and, as a consequence, negatively impact their growth and development.

It was also observed that fussy eating also increases the risk of Depression, eating disorders & behavioral problems. It is also hypothesized that it can be related to genetic contributions, environmental factors, sibling pressures, etc.

As per the Dietary guidelines, a nutritionally balanced diet is critical for ensuring normal growth & development in the children. Current dietary guidelines for children promote the intake of a varied diet filled with healthy, nutrient-dense foods, comprising a wide range of vegetables and fruits, cereals (preferably whole grains), lean proteins, and low-fat dairy products.

Foods that are high in saturated fat, added sugars, and added salt, which could displace the intake of healthier alternatives, should be limited. These dietary recommendations help to ensure the adequate intake of nutrients that are considered necessary for the proper growth and development of children. The variety of foods consumed is also important, given that individual foods within each food group can differ with respect to their nutritional profiles.

However, the question again arises is that if the child is not at all ready to eat & is quite fussy, then how to make him/her eat all the different food groups.
