You've Got A Fussy Eater
here's what you need to do!
Your child is fussy with food.
Does this sound familiar?
The Only Way You Can Get Them To Eat Is To Distract Them With Your Phone While You Spoon Food Into Their Mouths.
Or Bring Their Favourite Toy To The Dinner Table Letting Them Feed ‘Mr Dinosaur’ While You Try To Feel Them.
Dessert works as a great bargaining tool, you know that they’ll eat a little more if you remind them that there’s something yummy coming up if they do a great job.
And when it comes to family mealtimes, it’s obvious that they really don’t want to be there, you might be forever reminding them to sit still, eat a bit more chicken, stop throwing food, and to be quite honest you’re pulling your hair out with frustration.
You tend to cook the same meals on repeat because you know what your child likes, but that’s a far cry from what you want for dinner so you eat with your partner after your child goes to bed.
And I imagine that in the evening you’re probably sitting on the sofa googling for answers but nearly all the advice suggests hidden veg pasta sauce or teddy bear-shaped cottage pie?
you know that
none of this works
Wouldn’t it be a dream for your child to come to the table happily, sit down nicely and munch away, you probably wouldn’t mind if they didn’t clean their plate, just so long as there was less drama at mealtimes and they didn’t refuse it outright.
Helping a fussy eater to like new foods isn’t easy and does need specialist help (which is why none of those food tips on google actually work).
I’ve got strategies that I use with families that REALLY work…and none of them actually involve the food!
