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.

Good but doesn't cover what to do if they don't eat any dinner! Do you allow cereal later. . .

Most of the hints seem incredibly obvious and logical once you start to think about it, but the fact that they have to be pointed out shows how useful they are.
Well laid out, doesn't go into rambling babble, and it's a fun read.

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.

Great price for a quick and easy to read book that helps you see it from the child's perspective. I had amazing results IMMEDIATELY and would recommend this book to parents who are pulling their hair out (like I was!) my daughter is an incredibly fussy 2 year old who previously would only eat 3 different foods. Meantimes were incredibly stressful with wasted food and constant snacks through the day on pricey kids snacks. Now my daughter eats proper meals and fruit !

I've been recommended this book so I decided to order it with the prime next day delivery (fab service). Wow, I have to say that this is the best toddler parenting book I have ever seen. I am half way through the book and I can see my wrong doing already! My child eats really well most of the time, with her asserting her new found independence, we've had some difficult meal times and I wanted to stop that. This book is very easy to read and easy to relate to as an adult that remembers their childhood eating too. Furthermore, it is helping me see that our non food related tantrums are also about power (I already knew this to a certain extent but wasn't really 'seeing' it the way I need to see it as a parent) which both my toddler and I are faced with daily at the moment, mainly as we both are very stubborn and very much alike! I know I need to step away from certain situations but I often lost my cool because I didn't know how. Now I think I will be able to 'train' myself to stay calmer and see it from her point of view before the situation escalates. Fab book, highly recommended!
