It's the weekend so a lot of us have run out of steam for meal prep. Take-aways or pre-packaged food is a great time-saver :)
If we have a picky eater that does eat some of the favourites like fish & chips, nuggets and fish sticks they can often be a great way to support steps forwards.
If crumbed foods are a hit for our child they will have established a comfort level with the look and the taste.
Anything we approach positively we are more likely to eat than something that makes us uncomfortable and anxious.
Can we use our fussy child's love of a food to gently encourage them to eat something new? An easy start may to be to just change the brand that is offered.
Or are we able to take the nuggets and move to tenders or chicken strips or goujons?
Creating Confident Eaters - our new book will be out this month and will take you through simple steps to adding variety in your child's diet. Tips, strategies and stories from other parents. Woven through this is my philosophy around how to approach food gently.
Judith is passionate about good food and is even more passionate about enabling other people to enjoy the wide variety of fresh food available today.
