Overcome Picky Eating Problems
 
   Overcome Picky Eating Problems
Children are often the worst offenders when it comes to picky eating. During March, which is National Nutrition Month, we'd like to offer you some tips to help you get your little ones to try new foods that offer great nutritional benefits.

These tips will help you get your children to try new things without turning meal time into a battle field.

Listen to your child. Children will only eat when they're hungry. Therefore, forcing meals tends to be unproductive.

Create a routine. Children who know when to expect snacks and meals will usually come to the table hungry and will be ready to eat when they get there.

Repeat exposure to new foods. Children need time to taste and, sometimes, play with their foods to get comfortable with them. Even if children don't like them right away, they may become more likely to taste them over time.

Ask your children for help. Have your child pick foods that they like at the grocery store. If he or she is old enough to be involved in prep work, they will probably enjoy the new food more.

Eat your veggies. Children will eat healthy foods if they see you eating them. Otherwise, you might have to be sneaky by adding fruit to the top of cereal.

Focus on mealtime. Minimize distractions at dinner time by turning off the television and keeping toys and books from the table.

Make it clear that you will not make separate meals. Children who believe that their parents will make different things will only remain picky eaters longer.

In general, picky eating won't hurt your child. However, if you're worried that your child's health is going to be compromised, talk to your pediatrician.

For more information about children's eating habits, contact Mettler Center about arranging an appointment with our registered dietitian.

End Your Chronic Pain With PT

Chronic pain can be caused by many different factors. Normal aging, old injuries, poor posture, lifting heavy objects, or being overweight can cause chronic pain. Diseases can cause chronic pain. There are even less obvious sources of chronic pain. To learn more about it, watch our video, "Hidden Origins of Chronic Pain."


Because the causes of chronic pain are so numerous, health care providers recommend many different kinds of treatments, including physical therapy.

Physical therapists teach people how to take care of themselves and provide exercises to help people manage pain by helping them increase their strength and range of motion. They may also help them make lifestyle changes to prevent flare ups.

 

At Mettler, we offer patients the chance to work with physical therapists at each of our locations. Each of our therapists take regular continuing education classes and are trained in the Mettler Method.

 

The Mettler Method is an advanced physical therapy approach that allows for successful identification of the source of pain and treatment of the involved scar tissue and surrounding area. The Method is exclusive to Mettler Therapy. Read more about this innovative technique.  

 

To schedule your free consult with a Mettler Athletic or Mettler Center physical therapist, please contact the facility you where you'd like to be treated.
