If your toddler is teething, you might have become really worried about fussy eating and constant crying. Relax and be patient as it is only a developmental phase of your child that will soon pass. Do not pressurise your toddler to eat more than required, rather give the child nutritional meals at regular intervals to ensure that he is still getting the required calories in spite of the tantrums. You must recognize the signs that the baby has had enough of something, like turning away from the food, keeping mouth shut, crying, spitting or not swallowing the food or trying to gag.
To help the child gradually learn eating new foods, you must always eat with your child. Toddlers are most likely to copy the behaviour of their parents and eat. When eating food, complement it, explaining to the child how tasty it is, which will persuade him to try some. Toddlers are badly dependent on a daily routine, so break the mealtimes into a few snacks and meals around the sleeping time. Give the child a light snack and water before putting to bed, and a proper meal later. Also, offer a number of meals with different tastes, sweet and savoury. Limit the eating time to 30 minutes; accept that toddler will not eat more.
