Product Description

Review

"It works!..." 07-Jan-2014 You've read all the books and you think you're doing everything right, right? Me too. But then you find you are doing things that are meant to make life easier but you still seem to be cooking three different meals a day. Me too. Then I read THIS book. It took me less than an hour and it transformed mealtimes in my house. The guidance is straightforward, non-judgemental and IT WORKS. Whether you are weaning an infant, struggling with a terrible-two or dealing with a finicky 11 year old like me, it works. Yesterday, my son voluntarily ate a prawn. Enough said. Give it a go!

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.

Although I had no difficulties with my own children in terms of their eating, I found the book offered a helpful approach in understanding why some of my grandchildren are such fussy eaters, and what might be done about it. As 'eating' can be the stuff of nightmares at the dinner table, and I have witnessed some of those, this book offers a doable approach. The balance of power is clearly explained - you, as the adult, is in charge of what is for dinner, the 'little blighter' is in charge of whether s/he eats it or not; that is where the choice comes in, not at any other time. The hard thing for both parties will be to deal with the consequences of those choices. The book gives helpful insight and guidance, but it also offers HOPE for changed behaviour. It requires a great deal of determination on the part of the adult; if you know you will 'cave in' because of fears that they might 'starve', don't buy the book. It is not a 'u' rated Disney plot!

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.

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].

This may be a small book but it is absolutely packed full of excellent advice and information. I'm really glad I bought it. I have a toddler who is a fussy eater and sometimes I'm at my wits end as to what to do. This book clearly sets out different approaches to meal times, it is mostly just common sense but reading it really helped me come up with a plan of action in my head and have me confidence in what to do.

Very clear and practical book on how to get your picky eater to be less picky. The tips were very valuable. I have started to apply these tips few weeks ago and I am already seeing some results.
