Create a ‘family table’ and model enjoyable eating

Aim to eat with your child at least once a day and make sure you eat a range of foods
Reward good eating behaviours such as staying seated and table manners, rather than just focusing on eating.
Pull the highchair or chair up to the table or ensure the child is sitting at the same level as the rest of the group.
Encourage your child to stay at the table even if he/she is not eating. Allowing them to leave the table gives the child the message that there is a choice between eating and playing.
