Create Confident Eaters
We give you the tools, the strategies and the confidence to get your picky eater eating.
You are in the Right Place if:
- You think of your child as fussy or picky.
- Your child struggles to try or add new foods.
- You are cooking more than one meal per night.
- Meals are frustrating, stressful or miserable.
- Your child is dropping foods previously accepted.
- Your child has an "odd" or disordered approach to food or feeding.
- Social occasions and/or meals out are challenging.
- Your child doesn't eat from whole food groups.
- Eating issues have been apparent for a long time.
- You want to change what's happening in regards to food and feeding in your house.
What are the First Steps to Supporting You?
- We'll talk to you in detail about what's currently happening (via our no-cost/no-obligation initial consult).
- Recommend a course of action for you.
A Little Bit About What We Do
The Confident Eater has a unique program developed in NZ to support parents who have children who are picky eaters. Although based in Wellington we work with families all over the country (and the world). Last year alone we worked with over 100 families from Bulgaria to Blenheim.
Even if you feel that you have tried everything, nothing works and your child is very, very rigid in their approach to food we can usually help (our programs are appropriate for 95% of families). Please, take the first step, get in touch and book a no-cost initial appointment. This takes approximately 40 minutes. During this we can look at what the issues are and suggest solutions.
Often just taking that first step is a relief.
The Most Popular Program
Our headline program is simply called our 'Parent Workshop' and is what works best for most families looking to successfully change the feeding dynamic. This program puts the control back into your hands and gives you the simple, practical strategies that work to get the children eating. We'll give you easily digestible approaches that you can apply in daily life. This program is personalised and tailored to your family and your child's needs. You will be provided simple step-by-step approaches to get from where you are now to where you want to be.
This comprehensive workshop gives you all the tools you need to make the difference and provide the framework to create confident eaters . Parents and guardians armed with the right information are the ones best placed to make a difference in their child's lives. Many of the recommendations are strategies that can be slotted easily into existing routines but deliver long-term results.
Picky Eating is an issue that affects everyone in the family. Taking action is never an easy decision but today's solution reduces tomorrow's turmoil.

There's Been a Seismic Shift!
There has been a seismic shift in our family dynamic post our consultation with you! It has been an incredibly positive
experience for us.
We are pretty religiously eating breakfast and dinner
together which has been a really positive for everyone. The power shift has been hard for Oli*, 8 but we've definitely made some positive steps - he's eating tinned peaches (his idea) on his cereal (after your amazing Jelly trick that you taught us) and has tried some banana.
He's tolerating yoghurt again in his lunchbox which is coming back pretty clean. He loved the chocolate muffins.
We understand this is a marathon and not a sprint so have realistic expectations. Our youngest daughter Charlotte* has astounded us - she's eating pretty much everything we present to her (so much so, she asked where the lettuce and carrots were at breakfast!)
We can't thank you enough for the help you have given us so far.

My Confident Eater
My son's eating was on a downward spiral with more food becoming excluded as time went on. It was also more and more difficult to try something new.
This was causing me so much anxiety. He has now gone from resisting new foods, to confidently trying, exploring and appreciating what is being eaten.
Thank you Judith.
