How do I train my daughter not to overeat?
Q: My 9 years old daughter is 4.7 feet tall and weighs 30 kg. She has a tendency to overeat and does not realise when to stop. I always have to ask her to stop eating. The problem aggravates when we go out to eat. How do train her to eat within limits?
A:I would suggest that you serve her a limited amount of food and tell her to leave the table when she finishes. After some time, she will get used to eating the right amount. Sometimes children eat more than they need, because they think it will please the mother. Make your own view clear to her.
