  1. a. Give a dessert as a reward for eating fruits and vegetables.
  2. b. Expect the child to cat foods that parents will not cat themselves.
  3. c. Coax the child to eat, especially new foods.
  4. d. Serve child-sized portions or allow the child to self-serve portions.
  5. e. Make the child stay at the table until she has cleaned her plate.

Summary Introduction

Introduction: Parents usually teach their children healthy eating habits that includes decisions regarding the type of food to be consumed by the child. Parents should encourage and teach the child to have healthy diet and avoid eating junk food. The correct amount and quality of food should be added in the diet plan.

Explanation

Reasons for the correct statement:

Option d. is given as “Serve child-sized portions or allow the child to self-serve portions”.

The encouragement given by the parents in serving child-sized portions or allowing the child to self-serve portions will allow the child to eat without being forced. This will lead the child to learn healthy eating behaviors.

Reasons for the incorrect statements:

Option a is given as “Give a dessert as a reward for eating fruits and vegetables”. Giving dessert as reward for eating fruits and vegetables to young children decreases the preference of food and indirectly leads to overeating food products containing high sugar and fat. Hence, option a. is a wrong answer.

Option b. is given as “Expect the child to eat food that parents will not eat themselves”...
