Fussy eating can mean a number of things.
It might be your child has an aversion to just one type of food that they don’t like (eg brussel sprouts).
It could be that they are becoming picky as a way of testing your boundaries.
Both of these reasons are normal and appropriate.
But if a child gets too fussy, it can be a sign of other things. Susan Marden is a Senior Speech Pathologist at One on One Children’s Therapy.
She explains how to determine whether your child’s fussy eating is something you need to investigate more, and ways to help very fussy eaters eat a wider variety of food.
