I get questions about children and fussy eating in my inbox every.single.day and it seems to be a problem that lots of families throughout the UK and other parts of the world deal with on a regular basis.
Children and fussy eating is one of my favourite topics to speak about, and I’ve run courses/workshops and spoken at events regularly about this topic throughout my career. I also regularly run one to one phone consultations with parents to support them with this matter.
Fussy Eating Support for February!
However, to try and help deal with all the questions many parents have on this topic, I’ve decided to dedicate a whole week to it across my Instagram, Facebook and Twitter accounts. To try and bust some myths, put down some facts and also to give tips and advice to support parents who are at their wit’s end with a fussy toddler.
For those who want to read more about this, I wanted to also write a blog which includes some more of my articles/fact sheets and useful posts about Fussy Eating all in one place.
Please see links below for more information, as well as checking out my social posts all through the week beginning 11th February for Fussy Eating February.
The links below are all slightly different with different tips and advice dependent on your own situation. Of course a lot might overlap too. I hope you find them helpful.
