- Picky eaters, early childhood
This research is motivated by the fact that picky eaters or food pickiness is considered not a serious problem for parents, so many parents still do not know that if it is not handled properly it will lead to chronic illness. The purpose of this study was to get a picture of picky eaters in early childhood in Bandung District. The case study method is used with a qualitative approach. Participants in this study were 2 people, namely the mother and grandmother of a child who has a picky eater, located in Ciruum Village, Wargaluyu Urban Village, Arjasari Sub District, Bandung District. Data was collected by in-depth interviews and observation. Data were analyzed using thematic analysis. The results of the study found that the characteristics of the child were picky by picking out foods, rejecting certain foods and vomiting and shutting his mouth against foods he didn’t like. Factors causing children to experience picky eating are hereditary factors in the family, parental modelling or modelling behaviour, low appetite for children, and food-related trauma. The impact on picky eaters’ behaviour is the low nutritional status of the child which can be measured from the body weight of 10 kg and height of 85 cm which are in the category of poor nutritional status, health problems in the form of children who often suffer from fever, cough, runny nose and diarrhoea, and also have an easy psychological impact on children fussy, easy to rage and easy to cry if his wishes are not fulfilled.
