We have been following some great advice from Grace over the last week and we are definitely seeing an improvement at mealtimes. We have been careful in how we approach different foods and our daughter has started to try new things as we havnt put as much pressure on her. It’s okay if she doesn’t eat everything, we keep progressing daily and that’s what matters. Thank you for your support recently it has really helped us open our eyes to the bigger picture on mealtimes.
Constant exposure. It’s been a tough few months; he’s dropped loads of foods that he had previously picked up or eaten long term. I’ve been feeling defeated and deflated and worrying about his future. Then I got some advice from Grace at Happy Little Eaters and she has put me right back on track. She reminded me to think long term and keep on exposing him to food without expectation. So I set up a quick fruit chopping activity which he seemed to enjoy, but didn’t eat anything from.
Really insightful and friendly advice and all fact-checked by a Doctor too! Also, if you don’t have time to read up on it, Grace’s podcasts are very engaging and informative.
