Take chips (or other processed foods) off the pedestal by serving it along with a meal.⠀
.⠀
.⠀
When my l’il one requests / or someone gives him a packet of chips, chocolate, cookie etc I don’t always allow him to eat it immediately (although sometimes I may). I usually tell him we can have it as part of our next meal. I would then serve a portion with the rest of his meal.⠀
.⠀
.⠀
1️⃣ This helps to keep all food neutral. ⠀
2️⃣ It isn’t a reward for eating vegetables or cleaning his plate. ⠀
3️⃣Teaches intuitive eating. If he just eats that item and says “I’m full”, I remind him there won’t be any food till the next designated meal time. This gives him the opportunity to evaluate if he wants to eat something else or not. .⠀
. ⠀
When I first started this method, the ‘sometime’ food nearly always got eaten first but after the novelty wore off I started noticing him reaching for the other components of the meal first.⠀
.⠀
.⠀
I’d love to hear your thoughts on this approach. Do you serve chips / dessert with a meal? 👇🏼👇🏼👇🏼 -⠀
