Happens that the kid who ate any dish prepared by mom with pleasure earlier suddenly absolutely loses appetite and interest in food, turning away from a spoon. Instead of persuading the child, to think out different cunnings and tricks – if only the baby swallowed one more spoon of food, try to understand the reasons of small appetite.
Most often deterioration in appetite and decrease in interest in food arises at kids after it executes a year and a half. To force the kid is by force unproductive and incorrectly. It is the best of all to think and look for the reasons of the deteriorated appetite quietly. Conditionally they can be divided into several groups. Physiological reasons of small appetite: - the child got sick; - at the kid teeth are cut; - hot weather; - out of time or in too large volume the feeding up is entered; - at the kid energy needs of an organism exchanged; - the child gorges on smaller quantity of food, than you offer it; - the child burned food or a hot spoon (cup) in the previous feeding; - the kid was bothered by a monotonous diet; - too long offered the child the wiped pyureobrazny dishes, in due time without having taught him to chew food. It is possible to carry to the psychological reasons: - feeding of the kid violently; - too persuasive offer of food; - entry of mom of the kid into work, her lack of the house, unusual for the baby; - reaction of an organism of the child to a stressful situation (the period of adaptation to kindergarten, to school, after a disease); - appearance of the new family member (brother, sister), nurses; - stay on a visit; - the period of adaptation to the new residence (in case of moving); - family conflicts. The behavior of the kid treated by parents is very frequent as the refusal of food and loss of appetite, actually is not that at all. The daily diet counted producers of baby food and scientists can disperse from real needs of each specific child. For example, if in a day regimen of the kid there is no enough walks and physical activities, then the lack of appetite at the baby is explained by the fact that he just does not manage to get hungry properly between meals. In the book "Your Kid from the Birth up to Two Years" the American pediatrician U. Sirs says that the child intuitively chooses the products which are most answering to problems of his development and growth for today. For example, you could notice that sometimes your kid during any time eats one product with pleasure (bananas, apples, kefir and so forth), and then sharply demands something else. U. Sirs writes that the diet of useful substances children balance not within day, and within a week. For example, in one day eat more vegetables, in another — fruit, further – porridges, meat etc … Also, as a rule, children prefer to eat often and little by little. And such diet is considered the most useful to the person.
