|While there are many children who have an extremely healthy appetite, the opposite end of the scale is those children, especially in the younger age group, who 'never' seem to eat. These children are typically very picky eaters and have poor appetites. They frequently need to be begged or bribed to eat even the smallest morsel.
There is often a strong emotional component connected to food and this can add to a child’s anxiety level. Picky eaters often tend to have weak constitutions and may get sick more often than other kids. This is because proper nutrition is one of the most important influences on your youngster's well-being and one of the best ways to keep young immune systems in good working order.
A varied, balanced diet that contains essential vitamins, minerals, proteins, carbohydrates and good fats promotes growth, energy and overall health.
