It's been a very busy time for me recently but very exciting too. I have spent the last few months working on the new book. Actually, it started as a book and has morphed since then.
I started out with the goal of putting together a book that would help parents of picky eaters to support their child to add variety. So often when I'm speaking to parents they feel really stuck. Their child has a list of favourite foods and moving from these seems impossible.
This was my goal. To give parents the tools they needed to make the move from toast or crackers or plain pasta to something else. As I was writing however, it moved from being a book to being a very practical, very user friendly guide. It takes you through the "how". If our child is only comfortable with toast how do we gently move from there.
I have a local artist creating the pictures and local businesses helping to digitise, to publish and to promote.
Like most things worth doing it's taking a lot more time than I expected but the end result will be something that is totally unique in the marketplace. A guide that shows you in simple, gentle steps how to get from what your child eats now to a new food.
I am hoping the first draft will be ready this month and have asked those on my newsletter list for volunteers to read and give feedback.
