with Lucy Thomas from Organix
Hints and tips for dealing with fussy eaters.
Some babies experience difficulty during the weaning process, this can be caused by many different factors; teething, illness, tiredness, developmental leap/ a new skill and even their mood. It’s easy to assume that any difficulties are because your baby is going to become a fussy eater, which isn’t always the case.
Weaning your baby can be quite an anxious process for some parents, particularly if your little one begins to show aversive behaviours towards solids. Even with all my experience as a feeding consultant I wasn’t immune to the perils of picky eating with my two as babies, who at times it seemed would only eat Organix Rice Cakes!
In this age of growing technology and social media we have recipes literally at our finger tips however what we also need is help to encourage our babies to explore and enjoy the nutritious delights we’ve prepared!
Today I’ll be offering you my experience and expertise as brand ambassador for Organix to help you over the hurdles of fussy eating.
Lucy is a feeding consultant and fussy eating specialist with over 20 years of experience working with children and families.
Founder and Author of Mange Tout Kids, and Mum to two girls who both have a variety of allergies and their own selective eating habits – clearly being a feeding consultant doesn’t make me immune to the perils of picky eating!
