Positive Parenting Seminar at Royal Bintang - The Curve

My children on towards The Royale Bintang

We have attended Positive Parenting Seminar at the Royale Bintang, Damansara. This seminar was organized by Persatuan Perdiatrik Malaysia and sponsored by Abbot Sdn Bhd. This seminar focusing to the toddler and young children and to parent as well under topic Eat Right, Grow Healthy. There are 2 topics been discussed i.e Are You Feeding Your Child Right by Dr Zawiyah - Nutritionist & Fussing Over the Fussy Eater by Dr Hera Loqman-Child Physciologist and the moderator was Dato' Dr Musa Mohd Nordin - Consultant Paediatrician & Neonatologist.
Many parents deal with eating problems among their children. From the seminar, a few tips thay I have picked uo:-
1. If your child likes the way you prepare a certain dish, try preparing other foods the same ways.
2. Chop or mince unfamilir foods finely and add them to your child's favourite dishes.
3. Cook favourite meats or vegitables in new ways.
4. Stop eating before you feel full. Teach him to recognise his body's hunger signal.
5. Don't force your child to eat more.
6. Give small portions at frequent intervals. Little stomachs have less space, so they also empty more quickly.
7. Keep junk foods like potato chips out of house. They have low nutritious value and will spoil your children's appetitie for more nutritoius foods.
