A mum sent me an e-mail asking if the guide would be suitable for a pre-teen or was it more for toddlers. I thought it was a great question and probably something that other's were thinking.
The guide is definitely not aimed purely at younger children. I primarily work with 2 - 12's although do some work with teens too. The guide has strategies that are as relevant for the 8-12's as they are for the 2-6's and a lot of the suggestions can be modified to fit any age group.
The principal premise is we must show change in order to over time add new, and that change is usually not as challenging as we assume.
The guide then goes through multiple examples of how we can approach meals and snacks differently to make those changes in a way that is acceptable to our own child. If you have a child that has sensory issues, anxiety or other sensitivities then there are still many ways you can support progress.
The guide was written based on my experience working with 100's of families - many of whom have extremely selective eaters (and often additional challenges like anxiety, sensory sensitivity, ASD, ADHD etc.). The strategies have worked for them so I am sure can work for you too.
It also contains many of the things I would say to parents to which they respond "wow, I would never have thought of that". That is what makes this guide unique and totally different to anything else on the market.
If you have any other questions please let me know as I would love to answer them.
