Sitting Down for Lunch

 
     
  The children are always on the move, and at eating time it's impossible to keep them at the table.  
     
  The main reason of this type of attitude is boredom. For children food is not a pleasurable moment, it's just simply a process which they have to go through.  
     
  To stop these moments from being monotonous we keep them entertained talking about themes that interest them like for example things about school.  
     
  Children need to be motivated, getting them involved in the food preparation is a good idea, get them to help you prepare the food, small jobs will get them involved and more interested in the food.  
     
  Make eating time a pleasent moment, avoid the telly or arguments during eating moments, give an example so the kids know that eating is an important moment in the family life.  
     
  Don't make eating time longer than necessary.
