Role Modelling

  • In a non-pressure environment your child will learn to eat the foods that you do and their relationship with food will likely be similar to yours.
  • The evidence says parents who eat more fruit and vegetables have children who eat more of these foods themselves.
  • Don’t expect then to eat a food if you don’t.
  • Anyone who eats with your child can influence eating behaviour consider who else eats with your child and what your child is learning from them.
