Treat Your Child How You Would A Friend Coming To Dinner
Feeling very happy that author, Claire Potter, of Getting The Little Blighters To Eat, has mentioned one my approaches to mealtimes with the kids on her page!

You wouldn’t dream of nagging a dinner guest to eat their vegetables or tell them they can only have dessert if they finish their main course, would you?! Don’t do it to your children either.
All it does is make mealtimes miserable - and show them that are platefuls of power and attention to be gained from NOT eating something!
