How can I get my daughter to eat her meat without it taking hours on end?

She's soon to be 5 on the 27th, and she takes forever eating her meat. Most of the time, she'll have it in her mouth (the first bite) and it stays inbetween her bottom lip and teeth. Any ideas to get her to chew and swollow it?

  • Cut it up smaller?? That's actually a good question 'cause my daughter still does that and she's 4. Usually when she sits somewhere by herself (dining room), she'll hurry up and eat so she can sit with the rest of the family (living room).

  • i always hated meat myself, and am a vegetarian now. i'd start her in the kitchen with you and let her give her two cents in what she would like to eat - it will make things easier for you all in the long run.
