There are plenty of reasons why you should not force-feed your kid. For starters, force-feeding imbibes unhealthy eating habits in the child, which stay lifelong. Some other pointers to consider the next time you push your child to finish his cereal are:

1. You force your child to eat healthy in the hope that it will help your child eat in the same healthy way as she grows up. This is a misconception. In fact, studies show that if you force a child to eat something she dislikes, she might develop a lifelong aversion to that food group

2. Force-feeding results in children eating less in short-term, not more

3. There is a strong correlation between force-feeding during toddler years and eating disorders like obesity, anorexia and bulimia during adulthood

4. Your child develops no control over her food habits. This will result in her overeating or under-eating as she grows up

5. Your force-fed child may develop a strong appetite for sweets and other unhealthy food items

6. It destroys your child’s appetite

7. It develops a negative image for food and eating in your child’s mind

8. It might make them hate food

9. It might result in vomiting

10.And most importantly, even if your child refuses a certain healthy food item now, it does not mean that she will not develop a taste for it later. You need to trust the research that has been done on this topic which suggests that your child will eventually be able to like food items she hated as a kid, as long as she
does not associate a negative image to it driven by force-feeding
