A - Z OF TOPICS - FUSSY EATING

Close this window

Parents are often surprised when their children, who seemed to eat well when younger, suddenly don't like certain foods. This can make mealtimes very stressful for families. The downloadable document section below contains leaflets which might tempt them round. Either way, this is usually a temporary phase which, if little fuss is made of it, should pass. Eating refusal can often be a behaviour issue so setting clear boundaries is also important.
