These are all words that can crop up depressingly frequently if we have a hesitant eater.
They are also words that leap out of toddlers mouths seemingly without provocation!
However, language does matter. It's far easier to get from a "this is not my favourite thing yet" to "I love this" than from a "ewww, yuck gross" to "yuuummm, this is my favourite".
At The Confident Eater we always prioritise language. It can have such an affect either positively or negatively on what's happening at the table.
This is especially important if you have more than one child and are being greeted with a chorus of yucks :)
Respect for what's being served is really important. Anything that hits the table has been shopped for, prepared and served with love. We teach our children how to speak well of food - even if it's not our favourite thing, yet ...
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.
