Book Description

18 July 2013
Does your child decide they don't like a food before they've even tried it? Do they say 'Yuk' to foods they used to eat happily? Would they live off chips and ice-cream and never touch a vegetable again if given the chance? Are mealtimes driving you nuts?

It's easy to think that children are naturally just fussy eaters. Yet, without realizing it, we are actually creating many of the problems ourselves with the things we do and say to our children around food. The right thing to do isn't always as obvious or as instinctive as you might think. Common habits like using pudding as a reward for eating the main course, or pestering them to eat their vegetables, actually encourage - not discourage - fussy eating!

This little book tells you how to start again. It won't give you complicated child-friendly recipes or clever ways to sneak vegetables into meals - just easy-to-follow, easy-to-remember rules to help re-programme your child into a happy, healthy, adventurous eater.

Recommended by a leading NHS Specialist Paediatric Dietician.

Product Description

About the Author

Claire Potter is a freelance educational writer and mother of two. After some traumatic childhood experiences round the family dinner table, she set herself a parenting challenge: To create children who were non-fussy eaters and saw all food - not just chips and ice-cream - as one of life's biggest pleasures. So she had a big think and came up with a cunning plan. It worked. She now has a couple of happy, healthy, adventurous eaters: Her son was more than happy to tuck into fried wood pigeon's heart on a bushcraft course and her daughter's favourite snack is...hold your nose...dried squid. After teaming up with a specialist paediatric dietician, who works with extreme fussy eaters on a daily basis, Claire's methods have now been verified and she shares her secrets.

5.0 out of 5 stars Me and my little blighter get this 26 Sep 2013
By JenT
Format:Paperback
A very quick, but highly convincing read about how so many of us get into a mess with our kids and food and how to sort it. In the month since I've read it, like other reviewers, I've found that it's helped to put the control back in my hands and reduce the constant, annoying-on-both-sides conflict I have with my daughter at the table, and makes mealtimes a much more pleasurable affair. I'm not sure she's quite a foodie yet (but then frankly, neither am I) but she's a lot more open-minded about trying new things, and I'm less anxious about preparing food to then be chucked away (after much arm-wrestling). I don't often write reviews, but this has had such a positive effect in our house that I thought I ought to share it.

5.0 out of 5 stars A really helpful no nonsense book 24 April 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is a really great little book that you can read through in half and hour. The information it included has really helped me to kick start a much better way of eating in our house, where we all sit down to meals, cook only once and have found that my boys (one very fussy) is even trying new things. I'' be off to the farmers markets with the kids now, and scoring new foods out of ten. A brilliant purchase and well worth it.

I loved this book, no recipes just straight clarification of what we instinctively know is right but hels to have it formulated into a book like this! I loved it and worked a treat just at the time my 6 month old started weaning so we all eat the same meal no more cooking multiple meals!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Helpful advice, whatever age your children 8 May 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
We have a very fussy 13 yr old and, after reading this it was clear that it all went wrong years ago! However, the general concepts are still helpful especially around not focusing on the 'not-eating', and he is not complaining as much when a less familiar food appears. Wish I had had this book a long time ago though.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book with bags of excellent ideas 28 Sep 2013
By Gilla
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Great book, beautifully illustrated and easy to read, giving sensible, concise, no nonsense advice about children and food.

Amongst many of the good ideas in the book, we have enjoyed choosing new foods to try from the supermarket, and are all reaping the benefits of more relaxed mealtimes. Whether your child is a fussy eater or not (we have a mixture of both in our house), there are lots of excellent ideas to make mealtimes more fun, relaxed and interesting.

I would thoroughly recommend this book to anyone with children of any age.
