One of my big mantras is that meals should be fun, relaxing and nurturing. How can anyone enjoy a meal if it's a battlefield?
And, more importantly, how is anyone going to be in the mood to try new food if mealtimes are stressful and miserable.
I know this seems counter-intuitive as having a hesitant eater often makes for difficult main meals but the atmosphere can have such an impact on what happens.
Family meals where everyone fights v cosy Italian with a loving partner. I know which I'd prefer.
Make a conscious effort to have a lovely, warm and relaxed meal table for a week and see if that makes a difference to your hesitant eater.
