You are supposed to love your child and try positive action in an attempt to get your child to eat a meal, not scare them so much they are too traumatised to move. It has been discovered the little ones simply want to sit on something comfortable that doesn’t cause discomfort – e.g. pins & needles or other pain in their legs or feet. Their feet meed to be to flat on the floor or on a a suitable foot rest of some type. That has solved the problem with many little ones. Don’t put too much food on their plate / container. I have read many reports about it being overwhelming for youngsters. If a child continuously refuses a particular food maybe it is not something that the flavour is liked. As adults we don’t eat what we don’t like the flavour of.
