Meal time can often be the most stressful part of a parent’s day. It seems more often than not your child is not interested in what you’ve prepared or takes a few nibbles and announces that they are full. When meal time consistently goes this way it is easy to jump to the conclusion that your child is not getting enough to eat. The last thing any parent wants is their little one running around on an empty stomach. Often as overcompensation for the unpredictability of their little ones eating habits parents offer larger portion sizes during meals and more frequent snacks in-between meals.
