App to make your fussy kid eat

Darpan News Desk IANS, 17 Jun, 2014 01:10 PM
    Do you find your kids' mealtime frustrating as he/she throws tantrums, refuses to try new cuisines or eats only a little portion?
     
    Breathe easy as researchers have come up with an app to help parents understand why children are 'fussy' and what they can do to improve mealtimes.
     
    The "Child Feeding Guide" app includes an exposure monitor to enable parents monitor what their children are eating and when.
     
    It provides tips and tools to help encourage children to eat a more varied and balanced diet.
     
    Often parents are unable to see whether their child's eating behaviour is improving, and so monitoring the mealtime experience can be useful.
     
    "The 'Child Feeding Guide' is a useful tool to help adults manage mealtimes better," said Emma Haycraft from Loughborough University in Britain.
     
    The researchers conducted extensive research into children's eating habits and mealtime behaviour to develop this app.
     
    The app is available on both iOS and Android platforms.
