Fussy eating child

Does your Child Refuse to Eat?

1-1 Expert help for fussy eating child(ren).

Fast-track helping your fussy eating child(ren) and grow your own happy, healthy eaters.

With personalised support over a number of weeks.

 

Do you know

Fussy eating can affect as many as 1 out of every 2 children?

So, if you have child(ren) like this you are not alone

Is this the case usually with your child(ren)?

Your child(ren):

  • Eat lots and lots of carbohydrates and therefore has an unbalanced diet?

  • Are very particular about the way food is offered. This may include dislikes of certain textures or foods not touching?

  • Don’t want to try small changes to their usual food, such as a different brand or flavour?

  • Does your child refuse to eat the same as the rest of the family, especially the evening meal?

  • Stressful mealtimes including relying on distractions and lengthy mealtimes?

For many, a child refusing to eat can quite easily develop into a long-term habit, often without parents even realising it.

This is despite

  • Your best efforts including offering vegetables repeatedly

  • Your child(ren) may have eaten well when they were younger, especially as babies and younger toddlers (I often see this)

  • You as parents or the rest of the family eat well

Should I seek support for my child
who's refusing to eat?

Does your child refuse to eat lots of foods, and is their eating the same for 6 months

(or is it getting worse)?

 

I’d recommend you book a

free Discovery call with me, for 15 minutes, on zoom,

so you can chat about the challenges with feeding your child(ren).

I would like to help you  to successfully reverse fussy eating in your child(ren),

from toddlers up to 12-year-olds.

 

Just like many others I help every week.

 

Helping children who refuse to eat involves a step by step process. This builds a foundation before we start introducing new foods. Therefore it requires  a number of consultations.

I recommend that you commit to a package (which is better value than paying for one consultation at a time).

Plus you can pay for the package in a number of payments.

Extended Prog.

When you sign up, what exactly you'll receive:

  • Straightforward, practical, positive strategies you can start implementing straight away; starting with how your child(ren) eat at the moment (and what your child refuses to eat). 
  • Support to build a foundation first, such as reducing stress at mealtimes and reducing frequent snacking (if that’s happening). 
  • We look at how to motivate children to engage with new food, such as tasting different foods. 
  • Step-by-step help which starts with HOW exactly to start introducing small changes to a child(ren)’s eating (without introducing new foods). 
  •  Then we look at how to offer new foods, and what foods are best to first offer your child(ren). 
  •  Throughout the process, based on the last number of years experience, I recommend what to say and do to best support your fussy eating child(ren).

What benefits can you expect to see?

Once you start implementing the changes over a number of weeks, your child(ren) should:

  • Be more flexible with food, trying a wider variety of foods.
  • Eat more nutritious foods, including some proteins and vegetables.
  • Eat more like the rest of the family.
  • Not graze or snack as much.
  • Have a more positive relationship with food, so they can be more intuitive eaters.
  • Eat a more balanced diet with different food groups.
  • Start lifelong healthy eating habits.

Other benefits include:

    • During consultations often the focus is on one child. But the general principles can also be applied to other children in the same family, such as siblings.
    • Expert support to prevent fussy eating developing in younger siblings or with future siblings. Often parents come to me with fussy eating child(ren), but they also want to prevent the same pattern happening with others in the family.
    • Even after the consultations finish, further benefits usually happen.

Feedback From Other Parents

Why I recommend you prioritise getting expert help now

  1. Unfortunately for a significant number of children, their eating doesn’t improve by itself.

  2. In addition, their eating often gets worse over time.  This is because if we eat the same foods very often, we are likely to get tired of them and want to stop eating them altogether. So, children often  eat less variety over time (and refuse to eat more foods).

  3. I feel it is best to support our child(ren)’s eating, the same as if they had other challenges such as reading.

    Many parents of fussy eating child(ren) tell me they regret not seeking expert advice earlier for their child’s eating.

    Don’t wait; as your child(ren)s’ eating may get worse over time.

     

F.A.Q.

  • The packages for Feeding Fussy Eaters start with a commitment over 9 weeks (3 Consultation Package) to 18 weeks (6 Consultation Package)

  • One consultation usually happens every 3 weeks and last for up to 50 minutes each. The one exception to this is the 8 consultation package (consultations are up to 30 minutes each).

  • Each consultation is followed by personalised recommendations and a step-by-step action plan, sent by email. There are usually a few main recommendations per consultation which is implemented between consultations.

Once a good process is started, changes usually appear within a few weeks, but sometimes immediately.

But it  depends on a number of factors, such as age of child, your persistence and consistency etc.

Of course, you can pay for one consultation at a time, but the packages are better value.

Packages start with just 3 consultations.

My most popular package is the 4-consultation package, which sells for €497 versus paying for 4 consultations individually which is €600 (€150 per single consultation, multiplied by 4); so, a total saving of €103.

I was always very interested in healthy eating for myself and when I had my children, I wanted to support them as best I could. However, I found feeding a family can indeed be challenging. This included my eldest boy who was challenged with soft textures and my youngest boy who refused to eat nearly all vegetables for a period.

I have extensive training in Psychology and Health Promotion, as well as Nutrition Coaching and Food Parenting. Due to this multidisciplinary approach, I am frequently contacted by parents of fussy eating children.

Every week I support parents to feed their children who refuse to eat. 

Plus I have empowered lots of parents to grow happy, healthy eaters since 2017.

  • Consultations usually happen online (Zoom/Microsoft Teams).
  • I use parent-focused solutions so children do not usually attend consultations.  

What are some of the effects of fussy eating?

There are many negative effects of feeding fussy eaters; on the children themselves including constipation and poorer immunity (even if they are growing well). There are also effects on the parents, with some parents so worried or stressed they can’t sleep at night. There are also effects on siblings as many follow the fussy child’s habits (and all children can end up limited eaters).

I provide personalised help so you can grow your own happy, healthy eaters, rather than problems escalating to a point where some parents tell me they feel their child’s eating is hopeless.

Why should I get personalised support for my child’s eating?

There’s lots of information freely available to help us with feeding fussy eaters; but some of this is conflicting, some is not evidence-based, and some is very general. Leaving many of us with significant questions such as

  • What do I do, for example, when my child refuses to eat their dinner?

  • How do I break down the goal of reducing their grazing?

  • Where do I start, for example, with how to get child(ren) to eat different foods?

  • What do I prioritise first? You may feel there’s very little or nothing working well with your child(ren)’s eating, so what’s the first step to making progress?

A personalised approach if possible is always best, so we start with your child(ren)’s current eating habits and develop a step-by-step action plan that is tailored to suit your family.

Here are some of the questions parents ask me when they first start working with me:

 Should we continue doing the same things?

 Should we do something different? If so, what?

 Are we making things worse?

 What exactly can I do to support my child(ren) to eat better?

 What’s the best thing to say?

 How do I break down the steps to get my child to start tasting food?

 

If you can identify with these questions, I’d love to hear more from you
