The Psychology of Healthy Eating for children; providing 1-1 consultations, helping Fussy Eaters (or Picky Eaters), as well as group talks & workshops on Healthy Eating.

Do you know:

  • Lifelong eating habits are established in childhood eg research shows that the strongest predictor of the number of foods liked at age 8 is the number of foods liked at age 4.  
  • Eating right is a concrete skill, that kids need to learn like learning good manners, which takes time.
  • Research shows that young children don’t have stable food preferences; they are still exploring, and they probably don’t even know all that they like yet
  • You can shape your kids’ food preferences; and feeding your kids only their preferences reinforces them.

How I Work as a Children's Healthy Eating Specialist:

  • I offer practical ways to get your children on board.
  • I use a straightforward, road-map to structure what your children eat.
  • Proven step-by-step strategies for how to gradually start introducing more varied foods. 
  • I recommend a specific plan for how to neutralize desserts and / treats.
  • I apply a successful (evidence-based) approach for teaching your children how  to eat right. 
  • I suggest clear and realistic (research-based) solutions for helping a Picky Eater or Fussy Eater.
  • The starting point is where your kids are at, at the moment,  and I work from there with your children's individual eating.
