Feeding Fussy Eaters?

Expert help for feeding fussy eaters

Get personalised support over a number of weeks to fast-track helping your fussy eater and growing your own happy, healthy eaters

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

Are you feeding Fussy Eaters?

Your child(ren) is probably a poor eater if you answer yes to most of these questions.

Your child(ren):

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

  • Does your child refuse to eat 1 or more food groups such as vegetables and possibly fruit and /or proteins; or maybe only eating these foods camouflaged (in other foods or liquids)?

  • Are very particular about the way food is offered such as 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 children, fussy eating can quite easily and sometimes quickly 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(ren)’s eating?

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

(or is 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 too, like others I help every week; to successfully reverse fussy eating in their child(ren),

from toddlers up to 12-year-olds.

 

Fussy Eating help  involves a step by step process which builds a foundation before we start introducing new foods. Therefore it requires  a number of consultations,

so I recommend that you commit to a package (which is cheaper than paying for consultations one at a time).

Best Value

When you sign up to a package, you’ll receive

  •  Support to build a foundation, before we start introducing new foods, such as reducing frequent snacking.
  • Step-by-step help which includes how exactly to start introducing small changes to a child(ren)’s eating, then how to offer new foods and how to motivate children to engage with food.
  • Straightforward, practical, positive strategies you can start implementing straight away, such as reducing stress at mealtimes.

What benefits can you expect to see for your child(ren)?

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

  • Not graze or snack as much.
  • Be more flexible with food, trying a wider variety of foods.
  • Eat more like the rest of the family.
  • Have a more positive relationship with food, so they can be more intuitive eaters.
  • Eat a more balanced diet with different food groups.
  • Eat more nutritious foods, including some proteins and vegetables.
  • 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 and twins.
    • Expert support to prevent fussy eating developing in younger siblings or with future siblings. Often parents come to me with a fussy eater(s), but they also want to prevent the same pattern happening with others in the family.
    • Even after the consultations finish, further benefits usually continue to appear.

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 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 move to eating less and less variety of food over time.

  3. I feel it is best to support our child(ren)’s eating, the same as if they had any difficulties with other essential life skills such as reading.

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

    Don’t wait for your child(ren)s’ eating to get better; as it may get worse the longer you wait

F.A.Q.

  • Feeding Fussy Eaters packages 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 about 50 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 should be implemented between consultations.

Once a good progress is put in place and the proposed changes are implemented, changes usually appear within a few weeks, but sometimes immediately. But it  depends on a number of factors, such as age of child,  persistence etc.

Of course, you can pay as you go for each consultation, but the packages are cheaper than paying for one consultation at a time. 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 then when I had my children, I wanted to support them as best I could. However, I found feeding a family can indeed be challenging including with my eldest boy who had great difficulties with soft textures and my youngest boy who refused to eat nearly all vegetables for a lengthy period.

I have extensive training in Psychology and Health Promotion, as well as Nutrition Coaching and Food Parenting, and because of this multidisciplinary approach I am frequently contacted by parents of children who refuse to eat many foods.

I have empowered parents to successfully reverse their child’s fussy eating and create healthy eating habits 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 want to 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?

  • Where do I start, for example, to reduce their grazing?

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

  • How do I break down the goal of my child(ren) eating different foods?

A personalised approach if possible is always best, as we can 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 chat to you to discuss more about your child(ren)’s eating and how I maybe able to help you

If you have concerns about your child(ren)s’ eating, please don’t ignore these concerns,

even if others tell you different or

your child is growing fine (that’s just one indicator of health).
