Motherhood comes with its own set of challenges. But it is important to not give up and learn each day while teaching your child the many aspects of life. Sharing one such essential part of a child’s learning journey, actor Mahhi Vij, mother to 1.5-year-old Tara posted about the need to make children “independent” early-on.

This is what she wrote alongside a few pictures of Tara enjoying various foods.

“Make your kids independent, teach them to learn and fly at a young age. Tara Jay Mahhi at one-and-a-half years has been eating on her own, deciding when she’s full, and learning to explore the world of food!”

Offering a variety of foods
Encouraging healthy eating
Letting children decide if they are hungry or full
Offering healthy snacks between meals
