If you are the parent of a fussy eater you’ll know all about the stress and drama at mealtimes.

When your child refuses to eat, it means that they’ll likely not get all of the nutrients they need to be healthy which affects everything from their mood, to their sleep to whether they avoid all the bugs and snotty noses going round.

If this goes on beyond the typical toddler stage, we really worry and it can lead to:

  • stressful family mealtimes, 
  • children developing an unhealthy relationship with food, and sometimes 
  • weight loss and poor health.
But you're here now and you can nip fussy eating in the bud.

I set up ‘The Children's Nutritionist’ to help parents like you fix fussy eating so your children grow up with a love of food and eating.

I'm also an Advanced SOS Professional Feeding Therapist (so you can be sure you’re in safe hands!)

And I have 2 children of my own so more than anything, I get how hard it is to be a parent and raise children to develop a lifelong positive relationship with food. These moments are precious – and we only get one chance.

I know it can feel frustrating when there’s so much noise on what and how to feed your child (and not much of it comes from qualified professionals!) Which is why a lot of what you find on Google is nonsense!
