Keto Viva ThriveFinally, if you find a food or food group that he or she will eat; let them eat it as much as they want, even if it does not comprise a balanced meal. At one point, our daughter lived on peanut butter and bananas. In our house, we probably went through several jars per week, but clearly her body and brain needed that kind of nutrition and she was willing to eat it.Sixth, be willing to give up old family habits, even good ones. Our family prided ourselves on our daily family dinners around the kitchen table, where we shared our day. With our daughter's anorexic mind, that custom became impossible. As long as she was terrified of eating, we had to find ways to distract her. Humorous TV shows worked. At one time in our lives, we derided the notion of eating family dinner in front of the TV and now each meal required us to watch about three episodes of humorous TV shows including Seinfeld and The Office. Nevertheless, that new custom helped our daughter to smile and eventually she relaxed enough to eat her meals.
