Parents have often hit a road block when it comes to their child's eating and feel there is no way they can make progress. Or secretly hope it will just happen as they - age/go to school/via peer pressure etc.
The common reasons parents give me for not being able to help their child move forwards are:
1. Their child is too "stubborn".
2. Their child will not even try something new.
3. There are anxieties around food.
4. They have tried everything and nothing works.
5. They do not have a plan, and are not sure which strategies to use.
6. They do not have the time/energy to do different things.
7. They feel their child will grow out of it.
Most of the families who I work with would tick boxes 1-4 at the least. These are all a normal part of picky eating and what I would expect to see!
The good news is that parents are almost always the ones best placed to support their own child to add variety. Who has more investment in our child than ourselves?
I have a book about to be published which puts the power back into parents hands and details a lot of the strategies I would use to support parents to help their child eat more widely.
First print run is only 200 so if you would like to pre-order please let me know. It will retail at $ 39.00 and will show you in really simple language, using images how to gently add variety to your child's diet.
The book is suitable for families who have a child who is very selective through to those with a young child going through a phase. It is also a great resource for parents who would just like to know how to gently add new foods to their child's diet.
Please get in touch for pre-orders.
