Helpline in Focus: Fussy eating

Posted in Feed Play Love.

This week on Helpline in Focus, dietitian and paediatric nutritionist Dr Jennifer Cohen (aka The Fussy Eating Doctor) helps parents navigate ways to deal with a fussy eater. She answers the following questions:

  • How to make one meal for the whole family (when you have two fussy kids)
  • Expanding a two-and-a-half-year-old’s palate when he only eats three types of meals
  • A four-year-old who will only eat fruit (and will not touch vegetables)
  • A family with four kids aged 18 months (twins), three and six. How do you feed all four when the three-year-old is fussy?
  • How to expand food options for a four-year-old with special needs
  • Dealing with whining at dinner time
