Picky Eating Plan (available in-person in Galway/ Skype) 

If you’ve tried different ways of feeding your kids and they haven't worked, it might mean you haven’t found the right strategy…yet. 

 

In just 4 Sessions I will guide you to simplify how to feed your kids better.

These are Personalised sessions, whereby I work with your children's' individual eating.
 
This is a 4 step plan, with each session building on the previous steps, gradually making progress over  a number of weeks and months.

 

Are your kids:

  • Limited in the types of food they regularly eat or largely the same in term of taste, texture or appearance (eg dry foods)?
  • Resistant to trying certain foods?
  • Sensitive to certain aspects of foods like textures?

  

Are you ready to:

  • Change your thinking and focus more on how to teach your kids to eat right?
  • Change how  your children  eat  before  you  change  what  they  eat?
  • Commit to 4 personalised sessions (usually about 1 hour each). Some people may wish to continue with more sessions to make further progress. 
  • Commit to implementing the suggested changes after each session.

 

Specifically this plan includes: 

  • Discovering more about why your children eat the way they do.
  • Proven ways to get your children on board eg how to take the fear out of tasting food.
  • Straightforward, road-map to structure what your children eat. 
  • Clear and realistic guidelines for correcting poor eating habits  eg continually grazing throughout the day.
  • Step-by-step guide on how to start introducing new foods (where exactly to start).
  • The starting point is where your kids are at, at the moment,  so its important to provide a list of the food and drinks consumed over a 3 day period (including both week and weekend days).

 
If its the case that your child has been a good feeder in the past (like  as a baby); but things changed over time by reducing the number or types of foods, then I feel confident that I should be able to help you. My approach to fussy eating is behavioural (ie changing your child's eating and changing your feeding behaviour) and this works very well for most kids. However there are a small number of kids with underlying issues interfering with their ability to eat. Some of these include: 
  1. Inadequate oral-motor skills including difficulty chewing or swallowing.
  2. Gastrointestinal issues, including reflux.
  3. Medical issues such as food allergies.
Ideally these need to be addressed before coming to me, before we start working on their behaviour.
