Pleasing a picky eater
It’s every parent’s nightmare – a child that won’t eat! No matter what you put on the table and how attractively you present the food, everything is followed by the signature wail "…but I’m not HUNGRY!’’ – leaving parents feeling frustrated and worried. It is not uncommon for normal healthy children to be picky fussy eaters, especially in their younger years. While they seem to gain weight and be healthy in all respects, parents sometimes think their children survive on air – with hardly a morsel of anything wholesome ever seeming to cross their lips.
Children that won't eat are a common occurrence. A young child’s aversion to trying something new is a normal stage in development and as children grow older they will become more amenable to different and new foods. Some children seem to be fussier than others and it is not unusual for parents to worry that their children are not being adequately nourished.
When trying to enforce healthy eating in children that won't eat, it's important to make mealtimes pleasant and not consumed by a power struggle between parent and child. Often children who won’t eat will nibble quite substantially from a bowl of finger foods or salads placed on the table while everyone is waiting for the ‘real’ meal. Try to present appetizing opportunities for food at regular intervals throughout the day but never fall into the trap of begging, bribing and pleading your child, or following him around with a spoon of food. Refusing food can become a way of seeking attention!
And though ideally, nutrients should be obtained from children eating healthy meals, you can give your child a regular multivitamin so that you don’t have to worry about deficiencies.
The natural way
Lack of appetite in children is often a cause of concern for parents. The most crucial factor in how to get your child to eat healthily is to not make an issue of food. Keep the emphasis on health by getting your child involved in cooking and shopping for food.
Figuring out what healthy eating for children is can be challenging. If you are wondering how to get your child to eat, there are some helpful tips. Empowering children by encouraging them to make healthy meals is one of the ways. Another way to get your child to eat is to allow them to serve themselves (if they are old enough) as this will also give them an idea of portion control and help to develop an independent relationship with food.
Keep in mind, when children go through growth spurts, they may need extra food. Make sure your child stays well-hydrated. Keep children active and encourage them to participate in sports or other physical activities that are not only good for growing bodies – but which also stimulate the appetite too!
Natural remedies have been used in traditional medicine for thousands of years to support a healthy appetite, helping to promote a balanced relationship with food. In more recent times, research has confirmed this traditional wisdom.
There are now many published clinical studies demonstrating the ability of a range of herbs to support the normal functioning of the stomach and digestive system, as well as promoting a healthy appetite (Chawla YK, Dubey P, Singh R , et al. "Treatment of dyspepsia with Amalaki" (Emblica officinalis Linn.) - an Ayurvedic drug. Indian J Med Res 1982; 76: 95– 8).
What are the Ingredients?
Kiddie Florish is a 100% herbal formula and contains the following ingredients in therapeutic dosage: Amla, Ashwagandha, Fennel, Fenugreek, Ginger, Skullcap.
- Amla (Emblica officinalis) has a long history of use in Ayurvedic medicine and is traditionally known as a powerful rejuvenating herb. The fruit of Amalaki is reputed to be the highest natural source of Vitamin C in nature! Amalaki has been shown to assist the body in its function of protein synthesis and has demonstrated effects on the support of healthy metabolic function, blood cell production, and digestion. It has been shown to assist with maintaining healthy digestive processes (Chawla YK, Dubey P, Singh R , et al. "Treatment of dyspepsia with Amalaki" (Emblica officinalis Linn.) - an Ayurvedic drug. Indian J Med Res 1982; 76: 95– 8).
- Ashwagandha (Withania somnifera) is also called 'Indian ginseng' and is one of the most important Ayurvedic tonic herbs, recommended for supporting growth, energy and stamina. Regular use can also help to nourish the blood thereby supporting healthy hemoglobin levels. Withania is also an excellent mood tonic with gentle soothing properties. When combined with ginger, this herb can help to support digestive harmony and comfort. This herb is anabolic in nature and in addition to being a general tonic, it is particularly helpful in supporting appetite. It has been shown to provide a tonic effect for the immune system (Davis L, Kuttan G. "Immunomodulatory activity of Withania somnifera". J Ethnopharmacol 2000;71:193-200.) This herb has also been shown to be a great choice as an excellent mood and nervous system tonic in children. (Archana R, Namasivayam A. "Antistressor effect of Withania somnifera". J Ethnopharmacol 1999;64:91-93).
- Fenugreek (Trigonella foenum-graecum) has traditionally been used to support a healthy appetite, and recent research indicates a role in support of natural steroid production (the hormones that drive the growth process) (Sauvaire Y, Ribes G, Baccou JC, Loubatieres-Mariani MM. "Implication of steroid saponins and sapogenins in the hypocholesterolemic effect of fenugreek". Lipids 1991;26:191–7.). In addition, Trigonella helps to support healthy digestive systems.
- Skullcap (Scutellaria lateriflora) is a relaxing nerve tonic with an excellent calming effect, especially suitable for sensitive children. This has been indicated in recent studies (Awad R, Arnason JT, Trudeau V, Bergeron C, Budzinski JW, Foster BC, Merali Z. "Phytochemical and biological analysis of skullcap (Scutellaria lateriflora L.): a medicinal plant with anxiolytic properties". Phytomedicine. 2003 Nov;10(8):640-9. PMID: 14692724).
- Ginger (Zingiber officinalis) has been used in ancient Chinese, Japanese and Indian medicine since the 1500s as a digestive aid. Recent studies have shown ginger to be beneficial in soothing the stomach and supporting digestion (Bryer, E. A literature review of the effectiveness of ginger in alleviating mild-to-moderate nausea and vomiting of pregnancy. J Midwifery Women's Health 2005;50(1):e1-e3.).
- Fennel (Foeniculum vulgare) has been used since ancient times to ‘take the edge off’ appetite and was traditionally used to avoid 'growling stomachs' during church services! Fennel also supports the liver, kidneys and spleen. The health of these body organs is essential for the breakdown of dietary fat and the elimination of waste products from the body. Furthermore, fennel vulgare has been shown to support digestion.

How has Kiddie Florish helped others?
“Ever since I can remember my eldest daughter, Sarah 9 years old, has been a fussy eater who never seems to finish her food. No matter what I make for her, she will have a couple of spoonfuls and then say she is no longer hungry. She is getting more involved in sports now, and I was worried that she wouldn’t be getting enough energy. I have been giving her Kiddie Florish for the last two months, and there has definitely been an improvement. She will stay at the dinner table longer and eat more of her meal, and we are arguing less and less about her eating. I can’t even begin to describe my sense of relief... Thank you for helping us and I will continue to use Kiddie Florish for Sarah.”
“I have been using Kiddie Florish for my 3 year old twins for 4 weeks now and what a difference already! There is definitely less fighting at mealtimes, as well as in between, and both of them are eating better. I have also tried some of your tips and advice, bran and carrot muffins are now a firm favorite, a great breakfast back up that I don’t feel too guilty about. Heartfelt thanks from a desperate mom.”
“My son is a very fussy eater, and I have been looking for something natural that would boost his appetite. I came across Kiddie Florish and thought it would not hurt to give it a try. Within a week, we could see a difference. I didn't have to chase him to feed him. Now, it's been about two weeks, and he is eating on his own and eating more and not fussing to eat. Thank you for your product. I would recommend this to anyone who has similar problems.”
