1.定时吃饭

将家庭用餐时间放在每周计划中后,您就更有可能实现计划。在餐桌旁用餐,关闭电视和电话,这次的用餐会变得更加特别。

2.避免仓促

留出大约20-30分钟的家庭用餐时间,则可以给您的孩子充足的吃饭时间。他们将有机会尝试新食物并养成良好的饮食习惯。这也使您有时间放松,聊天并享受家人的乐趣。

3.让所有人参与

让您的孩子参与选择和准备家庭餐的过程,这可以增加他们进餐的机会,还可以鼓励挑剔的孩子尝试新食物。

即使是年幼的孩子,也可以帮助您准备家庭餐。例如,他们可以洗水果和蔬菜,也可以拌沙拉。他们还可以帮助您摆放餐桌,甚至用鲜花装饰桌子。

4. 用餐时与大家交流

家庭用餐可能是跟上每个人的生活近况的好方法。但是有时候孩子会发现很难表达自己。如果您的孩子有这样的问题,则可以向孩子提出一些简单问题。例如,“告诉我今天在学校发生的一件让你开心的事”。

另一个想法可能是让每个人轮流分享他们一天中感到开心的事。这样,您的孩子就不会觉得自己被特殊对待了。

5.奖励良好的行为

当您的孩子好好吃饭,使用得体的举止并尝试不同的食物时,请尝试给予他们一些描述性的称赞。告诉他们他们做得很好。您甚至可以对孩子吃西兰花或者体现餐桌礼仪的时候,使用奖励机制来鼓励他们。

避免使用食物来作为惩罚或贿赂的工具。例如,不要告诉孩子“如果吃了西兰花,就可以吃些冰淇淋做甜点了”,这不是一个好主意。这可能会使您的孩子对零食的兴趣比对健康食品的兴趣大。

6.吃饭时要有创意

如果您有时间和机会,那么在用餐时间玩得开心可以给全家人带来一些期待。例如,在一个周末,您可以参考:

早餐做煎饼

在公园,后院或休息室地板上野餐

邀请一位特别的客人来吃饭,例如朋友,祖父母或邻居。这也是结识朋友的好方法。

1. Set aside regular times to eat together

When you put these times in your weekly schedule, you’re all more likely to be there. Having your meal at a table, with the television and phones turned off, can make this time even more special.

2. Reduce the rush

If you allow around 20-30 minutes for family meals, it gives your children plenty of time to eat. They’ll have the chance to try new foods and develop good eating habits. This also gives you time to relax, chat and enjoy your family.

3. Get everyone involved

Involving your children in choosing and preparing family meals increases the chance that they’ll eat it. It can also encourage fussy eaters to try new food.

Even young children can help with preparing family meals. For example, they can wash fruit and vegies, or toss salads. They can also help by setting the table and even decorating it with flowers.

4. Use family meals as a chance to talk

Family meals can be a great way to keep up with what everyone is doing. But sometimes children can find it hard to put their days into words. If this sounds like your child, it can help to ask your child questions that need more than a yes-or-no answer. For example, ‘Tell me one great thing that happened at school today’.

Another idea might be for everyone to take turns sharing something good and bad about their day. This way your child won’t feel like she’s being put on the spot.

5. Reward good behaviour

When your younger children are eating nicely, using good manners and trying different foods, try to reward them with some descriptive praise. Tell them what they’re doing well. You might even want to use a reward chart to reward behaviour like trying every food on the plate or saying ‘please’ and ‘thank you’.

Avoid using food as punishment or bribes. For example, it isn’t a good idea to say, ‘If you eat your broccoli, you can have some ice-cream for dessert’. This can make your child more interested in treats than healthy foods.

6. Be creative with mealtimes

When you have the time and opportunity, having some fun with mealtimes can give the whole family something to look forward to. For example, on a weekend you might:

make pancakes for breakfast

have a picnic at the park, in your backyard or on the lounge room floor

invite a special guest over for dinner, like a friend, grandparent or neighbour. This can also be a great way of getting to know your older or teenage child’s friends.
