Anak tak nak makan ikut sukatan recommended by experts? How?

These few days, i had a tough time trying to make sure miya finish her food. Dia makan hanya bila dia lapar & berenti bila dah kenyang. Tak macam dulu, where she will eat until licin. So it got me worried.

1001 worries la..takut that she is not getting enought nutri & calories. takut she won't gain weight. Takut she won't grow smart.

As usual, bila hati ku resah, akan ku google info regarding this. then i jumpa an article by Caroline Rea, RN, BS, MSfrom http://www.revolutionhealth.com/articles/division-of-responsibility-in-feeding-your-child/ug2200.

it goes:


"The division of responsibility is a way of feeding your child that takes the battle out of meal times.

  • From birth until your child is between 6 months and 1 year old, you are responsible for what your child eats, and your child is responsible for how much and how often he or she eats. (Infants are fed on demand.)
  • As your child starts eating solid foods, you become responsible for what, when, and where your child eats, and your child is responsible for how much is eaten, and even whether he or she eats.
How you and your child decide on food
Child's age Your responsibility Your child's responsibility
0 to 6–12 months

What

How much

When (how often)

1 year and older

What

When (how often)

Where

How much

Whether

Infants are born with an internal hunger gauge that tells them when they're hungry and when they're full. When we try to control how much children eat, we interfere with this natural ability. Sticking to the division of responsibility helps your child stay in touch with those internal cues.

Responsibility changes as your child grows. By the time your child is about 1 year of age, you become responsible for when your child eats by providing routine meals and snacks. You also decide where your child eats, ideally at home, at a table for as many family meals as possible. Doing this lays a foundation for the decisions your child will make when he or she has more freedom to decide what, where, and when to eat.

It helps for you to be a good role model—your own eating and lifestyle choices are a powerful teaching tool. Your child sees the choices you make and follows your example."

So its ok to let miya decide on how much she wants to eat, as long as i prep the best food for her. But at age 1 above, i have to make sure she eats & finish the food yg i prep accoridng to the time & portion.

So mommies out there, jgn la risau pasal anak2 u yg below 1yrs old tak makan byk ye?

assalamualaikum mama-miya,

mcm my son now dia 6 months++(almost 7 mth in a few days)so every time mkn, i bg 1 tbs..so dia mcm tk cukup je sbb pastu mesti nk kena tampung ngan susu..so boleh ke bg more than 1 tbs?

seperti yg i letak kat posting ni, anak below 1thn, si ibu punye tanggung jawab adalah utk menentukan apa yg anak makan. so ibu kena pastikan anak dpt semua khasiat yg di perlukan..carbo & fiber, vege, fruit & protein. tetapi amount tu masih di tentukan oleh anak..kalau anak makan sikit, means dia dah cukup dah utk makanan tu..kalau dia makan byk, meaning dia mmg perlukan byk makanan tu.. tp nnt bila anak dah setahun ke atas..si ibu kena la sediakan makanan, jenisnye & ikut sukatan & pastikan anak habiskan makanan tu.. kalau tak gitu nnt, anak akan ade prob pembesaran.

so tak kisah la dia now byk makan or byk minum, janji sekarang ni (below 1thn) kita sediakan semua yg anak tu perlu utk membesar.

ooh..ok..just nk confirmation..tqs ye mama-miya..sy ada baca mama-miya guna warmer jns snow bear ye..kl kiter nk panaskan mknn..leh letak dlm pe2 bekas or ada bekas tertentu shj?

Mama-Miya a.k.a "Jedi Hopeful" said...

i pakai warmer ni..i biasa heat food dlm bekas dadih or avent storage cup/bottle. mmg senang sgt nak heat & even kalau travel, leh panaskan dlm kereta. i think any bekas BPA free yg dlm size bekas dadih or botol avent tu, mmg sesuai to heat food.
