CONTENT AND LEARNING OBJECTIVES

Fussy eating is a very normal stage of child development. In fact, about 50% of children are fussy at some point during the early years, and most grow out of it. However, it can still be a stressful and frustrating time for parents and carers. This session is designed to arm you with the tools to support parents and carers to keep mealtimes calm and help toddlers to accept and enjoy a wider variety of foods.

For many children, fussy eating can appear quite suddenly, and many parents ask why their toddler is suddenly eating a restricted diet.

One reason for a child suddenly becoming fussy is the development of neophobia – a fear of new foods – which is very common amongst toddlers once they are on the move! Research shows that neophobia is an evolutionary response to prevent children from eating something new that is potentially poisonous or harmful.

In this webinar, Baby and Child Nutritionist, Charlotte Stirling-Reed shares what fussy eating looks like and how healthcare professionals can support parents and carers to cope with reassurance and some simple food refusal tips.

This webinar covers:

  • A deep dive into fussy eating and how to cope
