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.

Bought this book a couple of weeks ago.Took me just under an hour to read and digest(!) but it's helped a lot. Now, once the food is on the table, I see it as my job is done. We talk about other stuff (not the food). I'm seeing little changes day by day. My 6 year old tried the white bit of an egg for the first time. My 11 year old took marmalade sandwiches in his lunchbox. That doesn't sound like a big deal, but it's a big leap forward for him because he's taken jam sandwiches every single day pretty much since he started school.

I reckon a huge amount of this is common sense but reading through this helps it to fall into place and does make you notice when you fall into one of the traps. It has easy to understand "rules" and I am really pleased with it].

Never written a review in my life. Excellent book. Easy to follow. It says you see small results in 2 weeks and major ones in 3-4 months. I am 10 days in and have already achieved things I could only dream of before with my fussy 9 year old boy (I am keeping a log of all the little achievements each week so I can track progress (such as "didn't have a melt down when there were vegetables on his plate" and "ate a pasta dish happily that he could see bits of garlic and chilli flakes in"). Still a long, long way to go but I am more confident than ever that if I stick the rules major progress will be made over the coming months/years. What I love more than anything is that meal times are now stress free!!!

Although this book does not give any recipes or earth shattering information, it supports you in making you make the right decisions when your child is a fussy eater. I found this book to be helpful.

Sorry but this book hasn't worked for us and has caused nothing but even more tears (mum) and frustration. Our son eats even less now after trying this for months. It's absolutely heart breaking, he won't even touch his dinner. All we get now is I DONT WANT THAT DINNER or I DONT LIKE THAT etc before even trying it. I'm not saying it doesn't work period as a friend said they knew of it working in 3 days! I can't see us lasting much longer with the book after months of trying, we will go back to "eat your dinner" and hounding him...
As it works for some and is written very well I'll give it 2 stars but it simply hasn't worked for us.
