Welcome to week 3 of your child’s life as a 21-month-old!

Conclusion

It may be easier to give your child some TV time during his meals, but try not to get him into the habit. Food is best enjoyed when all the senses are involved. It is also important that you do not bribe your toddler to have his meals as it may develop into a nasty habit. Use positive reinforcement instead. That way, you will raise a child that enjoys eating healthy food! To get the meal plan for week 4, click here.
