Help you and your child to learn to understand their hunger signals

Use ‘hunger prompts’ before each set mealtime. Adjust meal schedule if necessary

Use ‘hunger prompts’. Ask your child before each meal if he/she is hungry and after the meal if he/she is full. Then describe what hunger and fullness feel like.
Children should be fed when they show signs of hunger and meals should end when they show signs of being full.
Rather than forcing meals, try adjusting the scheduled mealtimes to suit your child’s appetite and hunger peaks.
