Better Mealtimes: Online Services for Parents

Do you want better mealtimes for your family? Does your child have a limited range of foods they will eat? Are you feeling overwhelmed reading conflicting messages online about what you should do?

You’re not alone.

I can help you get clarity and direction, by keeping it super simple for you to make progress and feel better. 

Online services are in the pipeline: you can get free inspiration through weekly emails and be first to know when I can deliver something bigger. Get in on the action by putting your email address into the box at the foot of the page.

I’ve supported children, parents and Early Years practitioners to help young children eat well for over 10 years. Here’s some relatively recent feedback from parents:

  • “Lovely to watch my son interacting and getting excited about making something”;
  • “Great session, would love to have follow up sessions in future”.

Better Mealtimes: Parents One-to-One Sessions (to be resumed at a later date)

An initial at home session includes:

  • discussion about the problems you are experiencing;
  • practical first steps you can take towards better mealtimes, tailored to your situation;
  • what to say to support your child to eat a variety of food;
  • a short practical activity with your child, if you wish;
  • an information pack including activity ideas.

Follow-up sessions are flexible and tailored to your needs, and can include discussion, practical activities with your child, or both. These can be at your home, or at another venue if discussion only.

Sessions are suitable for parents of young children aged 1 to 5 years, and those with younger children will gain the most benefit. The approach is relaxed and informal and your child can be there if you wish.

Initial at home session (90 mins): £50

Follow-up sessions (60 mins): £40

Note: Better Mealtimes sessions do not include medical advice. You should contact your GP, Health Visitor or a Dietician if your child is losing weight, lacking energy, or has an underlying condition that may affect their ability to eat.
