9 Things You Should Never Say To Kids At Mealtime


“Finish your broccoli, then you can have dessert.”

Bargains like these, which therapist Alissa Rumsey, author of Unapologetic Eating, refers to as “food negotiations,” are meant to encourage kids to eat healthy foods. The problem, Rumsey says, is that “this reinforces disconnected eating.” You’re getting your kid to eat the broccoli, but not because their body wants it. This isn’t the kind of eating you want to encourage, whether the food being consumed is vegetables or cake.

“That’s enough pasta, eat some more fruit instead.”

Here, your child is putting food on their plate because their body is telling them to. Maybe they’re still hungry, the pasta is delicious, or both!  “Creating environments where kids can tune into their own inner body wisdom will set them up for success in discovering what self-trust and satisfaction looks like for them,” said Rumsey.  By telling them to pivot to another “cleaner” or “healthier” food, you’re inadvertently telling them not to listen to their body.

“Look who finished cleaning their plate first!”

Many of us were raised to be a member of the clean plate club. Motivating speeches often included mention of hungry children on another continent. But the reality is that our kids have plenty to eat, and imploring them to keep going encourages the same kind of disconnected eating as forcing them to finish their broccoli before dessert.

“Don’t waste food!”

As tempting as it is to scream this when you watch your child pour a mountain of cereal you know he’ll never finish, this phrase encourages kids to finish what’s on their plate not because of their body’s hunger cues, but in order to avoid throwing the food away.  If your kids are learning to serve themselves and need help figuring out what a reasonable portion size looks like, you can offer, “Why don’t you start with this much, and then you can always come back for more if you want it.”

“You have to try one bite.”

We all want our kids to be open to trying new foods. And if that food happens to have been prepared by a relative for a special occasion, then we ourselves may be feeling some pressure to show our family’s gratitude. But there are a couple of reasons not to try to force a child to eat — anything at all, no matter how small the portion.  First, it sets up a power struggle you can never win. Are you really going to make your kid remain at the table, alone, staring down that one spear of asparagus?  Second, you don’t want to get them in the habit of letting others tell them what to eat, or how much. They may be safe now listening to your commands, but what about in the future, when the directives are coming from some stranger on social media?

“French fries will make us fat/are bad for us.”

“We don’t want kids to think of food as bad or good,” said Jillian Lampert, Ph.D., an eating disorder specialist with Veritas Collaborative.  If they are taught that a certain food is “bad,” kids may feel they need to “eat it in secret, hide the evidence, binge it, and feel shame for eating it,” said Williams.  And while you may think that you’re limiting your negative comments to the food in question, kids will quickly connect the dots between what’s being eaten and who is doing the eating. If fries are bad, for example, your child may feel like they are bad for eating or liking fries.

“I was good today, so I deserve a second helping.”

This takes the moralizing one step further, from a label you’ve applied to certain foods and extending it to your own worth.  Statements like these “imply that food is meant to be earned or our bodies are meant to be changed,” said Rumsey.  And while you may think that by limiting your comments to your own body, you’re protecting your kid, but that’s not how it works.  “Even if you don’t comment on your kid’s food or weight, they are watching you and listening to how you speak to yourself, they internalize this,” said Rumsey.

“I ate cookies earlier, so I’m only going to let myself have salad now.”

Without even using the words “good” or “bad,” here, you’re conflating cookies with wrongness and salad with punishment. You’re also teaching your child that what they ate earlier that day, not their body’s hunger cues, should dictate what they eat now.  You might be wondering what exactly you can say to your kids at the table, or if it’s even safe to talk about food at all. But keeping food talk neutral doesn’t mean you can’t mention what’s on your plate — only that you do so without moralizing.  When it comes to family mealtimes, explained Lampert, “let’s enjoy each other and the connection, not just make it all about the food.”
