1Overeating Or Consuming Too Much Food

With the opportunity to eat so much in a single day, it is easy to lose sight of what a proper portion is. If you find yourself eating out on a regular basis, you will notice that the portions are getting larger and larger in an attempt to emphasize the value of the meal. Children are not able to determine what a sensible portion is, which is why it becomes the responsibility of the parent to show them how much they should be eating.

One of the main problems with overeating is the fact that it places more pressure on the digestive system than is needed. When more food is eaten than is necessary, it makes it much more difficult for the body to break down essential nutrients. Considering that it is the parent that is in charge of a child's meal, it is essential that they serve the proper portion for the child's age in order to prevent overeating. This will also slow down the pace in which a child eats their food, which is another factor in digestive problems.
