Too much milk? Tips for when your child is not hungry for food.

I have so many people come to me and say that their toddler or young child barely eats anything, they only want milk. This often ends in a vicious cycle – the parents worry that they’ll be too hungry or doubt they’ll eat  whatever is planned for the next meal so they give the milk… then the child is full of milk so is not hungry for food. The less the child eats, the more milk they’re given by worried parents and again, they eat less. It can be hard but if a child is full of snacks or milk or juice they are going to be less likely to try anything new or eat their next meal.
