Making children have food is very difficult these daysWe have to eat food to make our living. Grown-up people will know what to eat, when to eat, how to eat and how much to eat. There is no necessity for others to tell them to eat or make them eat. They eat whatever they like as and when it is required.
But Kids who are in their early ages including 5 to 6 years aged kids also will not understand the necessity of eating. They like playing, watching TV or spending time with phones but never show interest in eating. If we keep silent they will not eat and after some time their hunger increases they start crying. That is why parents try to feed them as per a certain timetable.
But these children will not easily eat and they start playing with their mothers and if she shouts they start crying. So she has to slowly make them understand, tell them some convincing words and stories and see that they eat sufficiently.
My daughters-in-law spend at least one or two hours feeding one kid. They will get exhausted by the time their children complete their lunch or dinner.
I think the experiences of other members are also similar.
