Nelson Leader : February 28th 2013
23 THE NELSON LEADER, FEBRUARY 28, 2013 PARENTING/TIDES Whakatu Group Riding for the Disabled Thanks to the team at They made this ad possible NEW YEAR HAS STARTED. Our Therapy R iding sessions are all up and running for the new year. R iders from last year are all back and settling well into their programmes. Several new riders have started with us this term. Rider Sponsorship: We welcome assistance for some of our riders, whose families cannot afford riding fees. Please contact us if you are interested in helping a rider enjoy the benefits of Therapeutic R iding. The group's horses all enjoyed their well earned rest over the Christmas break and are now back into their weekly ride programmes as well, coping with the heat and meeting new faces. Horse Sponsorship: The feeding, care and welfare of our horses is around $30-00 per horse each week. If you would like to help, by fully or part sponsoring one of them, please feel free to contact us. All donations are gratefully accepted. We are also needing man power to help with wire fencing of our internal paddocks. This needs to be done so that the horses are contained safely. Please contact the office if you can assist us with this. Thank you to everyone that has assisted the group in the past.

Don't bribe them to eat certain foods or clean their plate. The other day I was asked about some strategies to help a parent cope with a child who was a really fussy eater. There are many parents who battle with their children's eat- ing and it often is consoling for parents to learn that they aren't alone. Why are children so fussy about their food and are they eating enough to help them grow into strong capable human beings? Below is a selection of tips to help prevent meal time battles. Respect your child's appetite -- or lack of it. If your child isn't hungry, don't force them to eat their meal or snack. Don't bribe them to eat certain foods or clean their plate. This might reinforce a power struggle over food. Your child might learn to associate meal times with anxiety or frus- tration. Serve small portions to avoid overwhelming them and then provide the opportunity to inde- pendently ask for more. Stick to a routine. Be patient with new foods. Young children often touch or smell new foods, and may even put tiny amounts in their mouths and then take them back out again. Your child might need repeated exposure to a new food before he or she takes the first bite. Talk to your child about food colour, shape, aroma and texture, not whether it tastes good. Make food fun Serve veges in a variety of ways, serve them with a dip (hum- mus), cut them into shapes. Ensure meals have a variety of colour in them. Get your child to help When at the supermarket, ask them to help you select fruits, vegetables and other healthy foods. Don't buy anything that you don't want your child to eat. When at home, get them to help with food preparation; washing the veges, stir sauces, or setting the table. Set a good example Make sure everyone sits at the table to eat at the same time. Eat in a manner you would like your children to eat, they will be watching you. Be creative When providing breakfast, put some fruit on top of cereal. Add veges to different meat dishes (they don't see them). Minimise distractions Turn off the television and other electronic gadgets during meals (including cellphones). This will help them focus on eating. Don't offer dessert as a reward Withholding dessert sends the message that dessert is the best food, which might only increase your child's desire for sweets. You might select one or two nights a week as dessert nights, and skip dessert for the rest of the week -- or redeem dessert as fruit, yoghurt or other healthy choices. Don't be a short order cook Preparing a separate meal for your child might promote picky eating. Encourage your child to stay at the table for the designated meal time -- even if he or she doesn't eat. Keep serv- ing your child healthy choices until they become familiar. If you are concerned about your child's eating -- consult your doctor. Another thing to consider is to record the types and amounts of foods your child eats for a few days in a row. The big picture might ease your mind. This can also help the doctor determine any prob- lems. In the meantime, remem- ber that your child's eating habits won't change overnight -- but the small steps you take each day can help promote a life- time of healthy eating.
