I have an issue. My son doesn't chew his food. He just swallows everything that he eats. I have tried giving him food with veggies in bite size pieces but it's of no help. If i give him any snack for chewing then he keeps that in his mouth and doesn't chew at all. what should i do? i feel so frustrated and irritated.

how old he is....


You need to keep telling him ' if you dont chew you can choke' or food wont make you grow if not chewed properly. Try making a song out of it 'this is the way we chew our food' a game where you eat and count the number of times you chew. Happy chewing!!!!

You take a bite of whatever u offer him.. show him how to chew.. gradually he will try imitating you... and ur job gets easier

This how I taught my girl... Gave a term to chewing 'gappu gappu' ;) yes sounds wierd, but it worked... We used to eat together and I used to put a bite in my mouth too... Used to play and show how to chew... N whoever chewed d food first we used to cheer...

show him sum vedios in which kids r chewing their food, this may help.. ask him that it's a kind of game...
