There are many snacks in our home. We bought some from the nearby supermarket, and we also took some from Miaomiao’s grandparents’ home, as Miaomiao’s grandma always likes to buy snacks in supermarkets very much especially when they were at bargain price. Those snacks include multiple cookies, potato chips, puffed food, chocolates, cupcakes, etc. Miaomiao didn’t like to eat snacks before. She only ate a little when we bought some from outside and then didn’t eat anymore. She often had some fruit between lunch and supper and didn’t eat any snacks or only ate a little sometimes.
But she changed from this week. Everytime when we had our meal, she ate a little and told me that she was full and didn’t want to have meal anymore. But then she also told me that she want to eat some snacks. I felt a bit angry and told her that she shouldn’t eat anything if she was full. I also told her that she could have more rice and vegetables if she was still hungry. She didn’t listen to me and continued to ask for snacks. I refused and she cried.
I don’t know why she changed. Maybe because her grandma often enjoyed snacks with her when she was in Suizhou in the past two weeks. Or maybe she is at the age that loves snacks for the different kinds of tastes. Or maybe she didn’t like the meals i cook this week.
How to let her like to eat meals rather than snacks? On one hand, i think i should try to cook more kinds of delicious food for her. And on the other hand, i should prepare less but more healthy snacks at home such as nuts and cheeses, no puffed food. Hope these can work.
