The right start Breakfast has long been referred to as the most important meal of the day. It is beneficial for students heading off to school to enjoy a meal before they catch the bus. Studies have found that children who eat a healthy breakfast have higher energy levels and better learning abilities than similar students who do not eat breakfast. Harvard University researchers found that those who eat breakfast are significantly more attentive in the classroom and have fewer behavioral and emotional problems. Many families find that time is not in abundance in the morning when they are getting ready for school or work. As a result, breakfast might be skipped in an effort to get to work or school on time. But families can skirt the issue of time with a few on-the-go foods the whole family can enjoy. ■ Individually packaged yogurts make a healthy and quick meal for anyone in the family. A good source of protein and calcium, yogurt is also filled with helpful bacteria that promote digestive health. ■ Microwaveable convenience foods come in various shapes and sizes. Choose the healthiest options among them, such as whole-wheat or multigrain waffles or pan-

cakes. These foods are easy to heat and eat on-the-go. ■ Keep a container of fresh fruit salad in the refrigerator. A bowl of mixed fruit is refreshing and healthy. ■ Whole grain granola bars that feature fruit and nuts can be a quick meal and a satisfying snack. ■ Smoothies made from fruit and yogurt are fast and can be stored in portable cups to take in the car on the way to school. ■ The cereal aisle at the grocery store is filled with healthy breakfast options. Cereal manufacturers are increasingly reducing the sugar and boosting the fiber content of popular brands. It doesn’t take long to enjoy a bowl of cereal, even one topped with banana slices or a few strawberries. ■ Whip up a fast egg sandwich. Saute egg whites in a frying pan and place between two slices of toasted whole wheat bread. ■ Make a batch of low-fat, high-fiber muffins over the weekend. Grabbing a muffin and a banana is an easy breakfast. ■ Instant oatmeal is available in a num-

ber of flavors and is a very healthy and filling breakfast option. ■ Create parfaits with layers of vanilla yogurt, fruit and granola. ■ Use a sandwich or panini maker to create homemade breakfast tarts. Fill bread or pitas with fresh fruit or peanut butter and

use the cooker to seal them shut. For families who simply can’t get in the breakfast swing of things, many schools participate in breakfast programs. If children are routinely missing breakfast at home, find out how to enroll them in breakfast served at school.

to teach others how to use it.” If possible, leave an epinephrine auto-injector in the classroom, as well. “Response time is vital,” Corl explains. “It is essential that the EpiPen is near the child. In the case of a reaction, you have seconds to respond, and you do not want to be running to the school office looking for it.” Parents also can create a food allergy action plan, a downloadable resource from FAAN (www.FoodAllergy.org), and distribute copies to the school nurse, teachers, coaches, baby sitters and friends’ parents. The form provides room to record the child’s allergies, medications and emergency contact information. It also offers an overview of possible symptoms and quick instructions on how to use an EpiPen. Safety is the first priority, so parents should not hesitate to speak up regarding their child’s condition. “When you have a child with a severe allergy, you live in that world every day. But others do not, so it is our job to share the information

with others,” Corl says. “Most children and adults are very curious, and we have always experienced nothing but compassion.” To further prepare you for the school year, Acebal suggests the following: ■ Equip kids with a medical identification bracelet —one they’ll actually want to wear. Allerbling offers funky, kid-friendly plastic bracelets with snap-on food allergy charms ($5-$18). They are available in 16 styles to cover a wide range of food allergies. ■ Get the school involved. Suggest an annual staffwide training on food allergies. The Safe@ School program from FAAN, available online, provides educators with the facts and practical techniques they need to successfully manage food allergies in the school setting. ■ Make it fun for kids to stay informed. Let youngsters learn about their allergies with games and lessons taught by Alexander, “the elephant who couldn’t eat peanuts,” on the website FAANKids. A team of animated zoo characters explores a range of food allergies through puzzles, games and stories.

Does it still fit? days too. And what about an emergency day? An unexpected party day? Is your closet â&#x20AC;&#x153;user friendly?â&#x20AC;? Meaning, do all of your clothes fit? Are you adding to the wardrobe you already own or just replacing clothes that are getting slid to the back of the closet? (Of course, we are not throwing anything away, because we will fit into them again one day.) But, when? IVESON The ordeal of getting dressed can put many of us in panic-mode if we havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been eating properly. How many times have you put on at least four or five different combinations of clothing trying to make an outfit look good? How often have you been surprised that what fit last month is too tight now? Typically, we could have four different sizes of clothing. Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sad is that the anxiety of our closets can create chaos in our brains. We know we want to wear something in the closet but weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re afraid it wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t fit, so we wait until the last minute to try it on. Why is it a surprise that we now have to settle for the clothes we didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to wear in the first place?

the first thing we do, it will be so much easier without the insanity of the daily â&#x20AC;&#x153;Does This Fit?â&#x20AC;? routine. If you are stuck in this daily ritual with your clothes, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t put off what you know you eventually will have to do. Think, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Just do it,â&#x20AC;? not, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m going to do it. Only concentrate on getting through a day, not a week, month or longer. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think about what you ate yesterday, that doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t matter anymore. One good food change can have a domino effect, just like a bad food choice can. Time passes quickly and losing even five pounds will make a big difference in how your clothes will look. Five pounds are3 equal to 20 sticks of butter. Now, that will give your clothes a little wiggle room, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t you think? Remember, I always tell my clients, â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you swallow it, you own it.â&#x20AC;?

Procrastination is one of our worst enemies. Our minds are always negotiating with every morsel of food that enters our mouths. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more work when weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re eating badly than it is to eat healthy. Things like refined carbohydrates and sugar are the worst offenders. If you think about how simple it would be to just remove one food category like sugar and flour from your diet rather than count, measure and weigh your food, you will feel thinner â&#x20AC;&#x153;fast and easy.â&#x20AC;? The freedom and happiness you will feel the next time you go to your closet and select some â&#x20AC;&#x153;oldâ&#x20AC;? outfit will certainly outweigh the pleasure you think you were getting from the foods that made you gain weight. Did you ever think about giving away the clothes that donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t fit? I never could. I always hoped I would be able to wear them again if I lost weight. Usually, I just gained more and the process of replacing the old clothes with new continued. But, if you think about it, having a â&#x20AC;&#x153;one sizeâ&#x20AC;? closet could allow you choices, variety and the greatest sense of validation. We can be very successful in so many areas of our lives, but it seems that what makes us the happiest first is how we feel about ourselves. Since getting dressed is

I recently found some old (25 years old) clothes that I forgot about. My first thought, looking at the outfit was, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I wonder if it still fits?â&#x20AC;? The only reason I had that thought is that during my entire obese life, what I wore was determined by how fat or thin I felt on any given day. Yes, the clothes did still fit, but my fat brain still had to wonder. I had gone from fat to skinny so many times that the amount INDA of clothes I had (most,not fitting) could have stocked a department store. I can remember vividly how often I used to think to myself, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have nothing to wear.â&#x20AC;? Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sure many of you have had that thought from time to time too. It wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t because I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have clothes; it was because nothing fit. The freedom of having a â&#x20AC;&#x153;user-friendlyâ&#x20AC;? closet can make your mood better than any anti-depressant you may think you need when nothing fits. So many people tell me that they wish they had dividers to organize the amounts of different sized clothes they have in their closets. You know, for the thin days, the fat days and the in-between

St. Johnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Episcopal Hospital Vascular Disease Screening Program WHY SHOULD YOU BE SCREENED FOR PERIPHERAL ARTERIAL DISEASE (P.A.D.)

Are You at Risk?

â&#x20AC;˘ Are you over age 50? One in every 20 Americans over the age of 50 has P.A.D. â&#x20AC;˘ Do you smoke, or used to smoke? â&#x20AC;˘ Do you have diabetes? â&#x20AC;˘ Do you have high blood pressure? â&#x20AC;˘ Do you have abnormal blood cholesterol levels? Are you of African American ethnicity? African Americans are more than twice as â&#x20AC;˘ likely to have P.A.D. than their white counterparts. â&#x20AC;˘ Have you had heart disease, a heart attack or stroke? What is It? Peripheral arterial disease (P.A.D.) develops when arteries become clogged with plaque. These are fatty deposits that limit blood flow to your limbs, especially your legs. You may experience chronic ulcers, pain or a weak or tired feeling in your legs during activity like walking. Clogged arteries in the legs may mean you are at risk for a heart attack or stroke.

What Can You Do? GET SCREENED. One of the key ways to diagnose P.A.D. is through a painless screening called an ankle-brachial index (ABI) in which a health care professional uses an ordinary blood pressure cuff and Doppler ultrasound to compare the blood pressure in your arms with the pressure in your legs. The two numbers form a ratio that determines your ABI.

PLEASE CALL 718-869-7138 TODAY TO SCHEDULE YOUR FREE SCREENING AT THE VASCULAR SURGERY OFFICE.

The right start Healthy and quick breakfasts for busy school mornings

Breakfast has long been referred to as the most important meal of the day. It is beneficial for students heading off to school to enjoy a meal before they catch the bus. Studies have found that children who eat a healthy breakfast have higher energy levels and better learning abilities than similar students who do not eat breakfast. Harvard University researchers found that those who eat breakfast are significantly more attentive in the classroom and have fewer behavioral and emotional problems. Many families find that time is not in abundance in the morning when they are getting ready for school or work. As a result, breakfast might be skipped in an effort to get to work or school on time. But families can skirt the issue of time with a few on-the-go foods the whole family can enjoy. ■ Individually packaged yogurts make a healthy and quick meal for anyone in the family. A good source of protein and calcium, yogurt is also filled with helpful bacteria that promote digestive health. ■ Microwaveable convenience foods come in various shapes and sizes. Choose the healthiest options among them, such as whole-wheat or multigrain waffles or pan-

cakes. These foods are easy to heat and eat on-the-go. ■ Keep a container of fresh fruit salad in the refrigerator. A bowl of mixed fruit is refreshing and healthy. ■ Whole grain granola bars that feature fruit and nuts can be a quick meal and a satisfying snack. ■ Smoothies made from fruit and yogurt are fast and can be stored in portable cups to take in the car on the way to school. ■ The cereal aisle at the grocery store is filled with healthy breakfast options. Cereal manufacturers are increasingly reducing the sugar and boosting the fiber content of popular brands. It doesn’t take long to enjoy a bowl of cereal, even one topped with banana slices or a few strawberries. ■ Whip up a fast egg sandwich. Saute egg whites in a frying pan and place between two slices of toasted whole wheat bread. ■ Make a batch of low-fat, high-fiber muffins over the weekend. Grabbing a muffin and a banana is an easy breakfast. ■ Instant oatmeal is available in a num-

product,” Corl says. Living a full life despite a severe food allergy starts with education. “We have always been very clear with our son on the seriousness of his condition because you cannot completely avoid peanuts, but you do not want children to be too afraid to enjoy life,” Corl says. “Kelly attends birthday parties, school activities and all sorts of events. He is just very aware and careful. He understands that there will be times he cannot have the treats his friends may be eating, and he is OK with it.” It’s never too soon to teach kids about their allergies, but it’s up to parents to educate other adults, as well. From teachers and school staff to baby sitters, coaches, neighbors and other parents on play dates, it’s imperative that those close to the child know how to prevent and respond to an allergic reaction. “Food allergy safety should never be left to just one person,” says Maria L. Acebal, CEO of The Food Allergy & Anaphylaxis

Network. “Truly anyone who has supervisory authority over that child should be educated about his or her food allergies – and it is vital that these adults know what to do in an emergency.” Kids should know what they can and cannot eat – and they should know the early warning signs of an allergic reaction so they can inform the nearest adult. “Children with food allergies should be empowered to speak up and let an adult know when they are not feeling well and to keep insisting something is wrong. A child should never be embarrassed to admit that he isn’t feeling well, even if he ate something he shouldn’t have. The child’s safety is the first priority,” Acebal says. Supervising adults should be provided with a list of foods to avoid, a description of possible symptoms and training on how to use an epinephrine auto-injector, such as the EpiPen, which the child should carry with him or her at all times. “First and foremost, always have the child’s epinephrine auto-injector readily

available,” Acebal says. “It must travel everywhere the child travels – and be sure to teach others how to use it.” If possible, leave an epinephrine autoinjector in the classroom, as well. “Response time is vital,” Corl explains. “It is essential that the EpiPen is near the child. In the case of a reaction, you have seconds to respond, and you do not want to be running to the school office looking for it.” Parents also can create a food allergy action plan, a downloadable resource from FAAN (www.FoodAllergy.org), and distribute copies to the school nurse, teachers, coaches, baby sitters and friends’ parents. The form provides room to record the child’s allergies, medications and emergency contact information. It also offers an overview of possible symptoms and quick instructions on how to use an EpiPen. Safety is the first priority, so parents should not hesitate to speak up regarding their child’s condition. “When you have a child with a severe

use the cooker to seal them shut. For families who simply can’t get in the breakfast swing of things, many schools participate in breakfast programs. If children are routinely missing breakfast at home, find out how to enroll them in breakfast served at school. allergy, you live in that world every day. But others do not, so it is our job to share the information with others,” Corl says. “Most children and adults are very curious, and we have always experienced nothing but compassion.” To further prepare you for the school year, Acebal suggests the following: ■ Equip kids with a medical identification bracelet – one they’ll actually want to wear. Allerbling offers funky, kid-friendly plastic bracelets with snap-on food allergy charms ($5-$18). They are available in 16 styles to cover a wide range of food allergies. ■ Get the school involved. Suggest an annual staffwide training on food allergies. The Safe@School program from FAAN, available online, provides educators with the facts and practical techniques they need to successfully manage food allergies in the school setting. ■ Make it fun for kids to stay informed. Let youngsters learn about their allergies with games and lessons taught by Alexander, “the elephant who couldn’t eat peanuts,” on the website FAANKids. A team of animated zoo characters explores a range of food allergies through puzzles, games and stories.

Food allergies Keep kids safe as they venture off to school For kids with severe food allergies, navigating the back-to-school blitz of new teachers, new friends, classroom parties and after-school athletics can be quite a challenge, but with the right game plan, parents can ensure their childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s safety without cutting into their fun. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have always remained vigilant, but others often do not understand the seriousness of certain allergies,â&#x20AC;? says Katie Corl, author of â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Pesky Peanut: A True Story.â&#x20AC;? The inspiration for her childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s story came after her son Kelly was diagnosed with a severe peanut allergy at 11 months old. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Many adults do not realize that Kelly could stop breathing if he eats a peanut, peanut dust, peanut oil or a product that has been cross-contaminated with a peanut product,â&#x20AC;? Corl says. Living a full life despite a severe food allergy starts with education. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have always been very clear with our son on the seriousness of his condition because you cannot completely avoid peanuts, but you do not want children to be too afraid to enjoy life,â&#x20AC;? Corl says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Kelly attends birthday parties, school activities and all sorts of events. He is just very aware and careful. He understands

that there will be times he cannot have the treats his friends may be eating, and he is OK with it.â&#x20AC;? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s never too soon to teach kids about their allergies, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s up to parents to educate other adults, as well. From teachers and school staff to baby sitters, coaches, neighbors and other parents on play dates, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s imperative that those close to the child know how to prevent and respond to an allergic reaction. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Food allergy safety should never be left to just one person,â&#x20AC;? says Maria L. Acebal, CEO of The Food Allergy & Anaphylaxis Network. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Truly anyone who has supervisory authority over that child should be educated about his or her food allergies â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and it is vital that these adults know what to do in an emergency.â&#x20AC;? Kids should know what they can and cannot eat â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and they should know the early warning signs of an allergic reaction so they can inform the nearest adult. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Children with food allergies should be empowered to speak up and let an adult know when they are not feeling well and to keep insisting something is wrong. A child should never be embarrassed to admit that he isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t feeling well, even if he ate something he shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have. The childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s safety is the first priority,â&#x20AC;? Acebal says.

PEANUT ALLERGIES are not only common but also very dangerous. Supervising adults should be provided with a list of foods to avoid, a description of possible symptoms and training on how to use an epinephrine auto-injector, such as the EpiPen, which the child should carry with him or her at all times. â&#x20AC;&#x153;First and foremost, always have the childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s epinephrine auto-injector readily available,â&#x20AC;? Acebal says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It must travel everywhere the child travels -- and be sure to teach others how to use it.â&#x20AC;? If possible, leave an epinephrine autoinjector in the classroom, as well. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Response time is vital,â&#x20AC;? Corl explains. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is essential that the EpiPen is near the child. In the case of a reaction, you have seconds to respond, and you do not want to be running to the school office looking for it.â&#x20AC;? Parents also can create a food allergy action plan, a downloadable resource from FAAN (www.FoodAllergy.org), and distribute copies to the school nurse, teachers, coaches, baby sitters and friendsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; parents. The form provides room to record the childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s allergies, medications and emergency contact information. It also offers an overview of possible symptoms and quick instructions on how to use an EpiPen. Safety is the first priority, so parents should not hesitate to speak up regarding their childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s condition.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;When you have a child with a severe allergy, you live in that world every day. But others do not, so it is our job to share the information with others,â&#x20AC;? Corl says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Most children and adults are very curious, and we have always experienced nothing but compassion.â&#x20AC;? To further prepare you for the school year, Acebal suggests the following: â&#x2013;  Equip kids with a medical identification bracelet â&#x20AC;&#x201C; one theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll actually want to wear. Allerbling offers funky, kid-friendly plastic bracelets with snap-on food allergy charms ($5-$18). They are available in 16 styles to cover a wide range of food allergies. â&#x2013;  Get the school involved. Suggest an annual staffwide training on food allergies. The Safe@School program from FAAN, available online, provides educators with the facts and practical techniques they need to successfully manage food allergies in the school setting. â&#x2013;  Make it fun for kids to stay informed. Let youngsters learn about their allergies with games and lessons taught by Alexander, â&#x20AC;&#x153;the elephant who couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t eat peanuts,â&#x20AC;? on the website FAANKids. A team of animated zoo characters explores a range of food allergies through puzzles, games and stories.

The right start Healthy and quick breakfasts for busy school mornings

Breakfast has long been referred to as the most important meal of the day. It is beneficial for students heading off to school to enjoy a meal before they catch the bus. Studies have found that children who eat a healthy breakfast have higher energy levels and better learning abilities than similar students who do not eat breakfast. Harvard University researchers found that those who eat breakfast are significantly more attentive in the classroom and have fewer behavioral and emotional problems. Many families find that time is not in abundance in the morning when they are getting ready for school or work. As a result, breakfast might be skipped in an effort to get to work or school on time. But families can skirt the issue of time with a few on-the-go foods the whole family can enjoy. ■ Individually packaged yogurts make a healthy and quick meal for anyone in the family. A good source of protein and calcium, yogurt is also filled with helpful bacteria that promote digestive health. ■ Microwaveable convenience foods come in various shapes and sizes. Choose the healthiest options among them, such as whole-wheat or multigrain waffles or pan-

cakes. These foods are easy to heat and eat on-the-go. ■ Keep a container of fresh fruit salad in the refrigerator. A bowl of mixed fruit is refreshing and healthy. ■ Whole grain granola bars that feature fruit and nuts can be a quick meal and a satisfying snack. ■ Smoothies made from fruit and yogurt are fast and can be stored in portable cups to take in the car on the way to school. ■ The cereal aisle at the grocery store is filled with healthy breakfast options. Cereal manufacturers are increasingly reducing the sugar and boosting the fiber content of popular brands. It doesn’t take long to enjoy a bowl of cereal, even one topped with banana slices or a few strawberries. ■ Whip up a fast egg sandwich. Saute egg whites in a frying pan and place between two slices of toasted whole wheat bread. ■ Make a batch of low-fat, high-fiber muffins over the weekend. Grabbing a muffin and a banana is an easy breakfast. ■ Instant oatmeal is available in a num-

ber of flavors and is a very healthy and filling breakfast option. ■ Create parfaits with layers of vanilla yogurt, fruit and granola. ■ Use a sandwich or panini maker to create homemade breakfast tarts. Fill bread or pitas with fresh fruit or peanut butter and

use the cooker to seal them shut. For families who simply can’t get in the breakfast swing of things, many schools participate in breakfast programs. If children are routinely missing breakfast at home, find out how to enroll them in breakfast served at school.

to teach others how to use it.” If possible, leave an epinephrine auto-injector in the classroom, as well. “Response time is vital,” Corl explains. “It is essential that the EpiPen is near the child. In the case of a reaction, you have seconds to respond, and you do not want to be running to the school office looking for it.” Parents also can create a food allergy action plan, a downloadable resource from FAAN (www.FoodAllergy.org), and distribute copies to the school nurse, teachers, coaches, baby sitters and friends’ parents. The form provides room to record the child’s allergies, medications and emergency contact information. It also offers an overview of possible symptoms and quick instructions on how to use an EpiPen. Safety is the first priority, so parents should not hesitate to speak up regarding their child’s condition. “When you have a child with a severe allergy, you live in that world every day. But others do not, so it is our job to share the information

with others,” Corl says. “Most children and adults are very curious, and we have always experienced nothing but compassion.” To further prepare you for the school year, Acebal suggests the following: ■ Equip kids with a medical identification bracelet – one they’ll actually want to wear. Allerbling offers funky, kid-friendly plastic bracelets with snap-on food allergy charms ($5-$18). They are available in 16 styles to cover a wide range of food allergies. ■ Get the school involved. Suggest an annual staffwide training on food allergies. The Safe@ School program from FAAN, available online, provides educators with the facts and practical techniques they need to successfully manage food allergies in the school setting. ■ Make it fun for kids to stay informed. Let youngsters learn about their allergies with games and lessons taught by Alexander, “the elephant who couldn’t eat peanuts,” on the website FAANKids. A team of animated zoo characters explores a range of food allergies through puzzles, games and stories.


At the table Is my child eating enough? With childhood obesity epidemics on the rise, many parents and healthcare providers are concerned about the dietary habits of children. However, many parents to toddlers or even school-aged children may wonder if their children are eating enough. Children often go through periods of finicky eating or disinterest in food. It is not uncommon to have a child who eats a wide variety of foods when he is younger only to dislike the same foods a year or two later. Most doctors say that if a child is growing and active, chances are that he is healthy and getting enough food. If the opposite is true, there may be some cause for concern. Parents should consult the childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pediatrician if eating habits seem to be compromising their childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s growth or energy levels. There are estimates that a young child should eat about a tablespoon of food for each year of the childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s age. Therefore, a 3-year-old should be getting at least 3 tablespoons of food. If the child is interested in more food, certainly offer it. If he pushes food away after eating, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t force more on him. Most children should have 3 meals and 2 snacks per day. Toddlers may not eat enough in one meal to remain full

until the next meal. Small, healthy snacks of vegetables, whole-grain crackers or low-fat dairy products can help take the edge off of hunger. Health experts say that it can take several introductions to a new food before the child becomes accustomed to its taste and texture. It may be a good idea to offer a variety of new foods together with something he already enjoys eating. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also common for kids to only eat one type of food over and over again. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t worry that the child is not getting enough nutrition. Chances are he will grow out of this stage and soon enjoy a variety of foods. Threats or punishments to eat will only serve to cause a poor relationship with food, advise childhood experts. Also, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t bribe a child to eat with the reward of a snack or dessert later on. This sets a poor example of eating and could lead to behavioral problems. Many children develop finicky eating habits. However, as long as a youngster is growing regularly and has plenty of energy for daily activities, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good chance that the foods being eaten are not interfering with health.
