Use Small Portions On A Large Plate For Picky Eaters

If your child is a poor eater, put their child size portion on a big dinner plate. That way it looks like you're only asking them to eat a little bit. It's amazing how willing they are to eat a 'small dinner'.

My aunt always settled the matter by dishing up only one teaspoon of the food the child did not want to eat. The child was then expected to finish that wee bit. This always worked well.
