As Children Grow Older:

  • they become more independent
  • they develop food likes and dislikes
  • they want to choose their own foods
  • they usually go through phases where they refuse to eat certain foods and this is normal
  • their appetite vary on a daily basis
  • changes in their activity level and/or growth spurts lead to changes in the amount of food that they eat

You Decide:

  • what foods to offer
  • when to offer meals and snacks
  • where your child will eat

 Let Your Child Decide:

  • how much to eat
  • whether or not they will eat
