Every Journey starts with a Single Footstep
I love this philosophy and it's very much what I believe to be true when it comes to eating.
We have to search out a way to make a tiny step in a new direction possible. Often as parents we feel we've tried absolutely everything and are stuck.
That's where having someone look in from the outside can be super helpful. We can see things that you're not able to and I'm happy to take a look at your specifics (at no cost).
Once our child is able to take a little step it proves to us that there is hope, that they can do it and over time all those small steps add up to big strides.
As our child is able to take more and more steps their confidence builds and it becomes easier for them to make progress.
This is all overcoming selective eating is about. Being able to take one little step and then another.
I worked with a young boy a week ago who had a really, really small range of foods he could comfortably eat. The day after his parents attended a workshop he was able to take not one step but 3!!
Sometimes children are ready in themselves to move forwards from their selective eating. Let's face it it is often not fun. Limited food choices so everything is repetitive and boring. Worry over social occasions and consistently feeling like they are disappointing parents. Once we have a plan they embrace it.
If you'd like to support your child to take the first step, you'll need to take one too :) http://www.theconfidenteater.com/help-needed.html
