What To Do With Fussy Eaters

Do you have a fussy eater in your household? Never fear! With a little help, and the natural growing up process, most kids grow out of the 'I will NOT eat that!' stage (trust me, I speak from personal experience!). In the mean time, hang in there and set a good example – kids learn best by copying what their parents do.

Here are my top tips for fussy eaters:

  • The best and most important way to encourage healthy eating in your kids is to eat healthy yourself – kids learn by example

  • Encourage ‘taste testing’ – each meal, get your child to try just one vegetable. They don’t have to eat it, they can spit it into a napkin if they want, but make sure they at least give it a go and taste it.

  • Don’t introduce your kids to processed foods high in salt or sugar – if they don’t have it in the first place, they wont learn to crave it

  • Read labels to make sure what ingredients are in the foods you’re feeding your children. Better yet, buy wholefoods in their natural form – fruit, veggies, meat, eggs, wholegrains, etc
