Picky Eating Hub

Eating is a skill toddlers are learning and developing, just like riding a bike.

Sometimes, when we expect our children to eat new foods they are unfamiliar or uncomfortable with, it's like putting them on a two-wheeler bike and expecting them to ride off effortlessly. Like any new skill, it takes time and repetitions to be able to learn and build confidence and some take longer than others or require more assistance down to fears and unfamiliarity. Sometimes our own expectations of what we think our children should be eating create the biggest challenges for our children to learn at a pace right for them. It's easy to over-simplify a process that actually isn't simple. You have food on your plate. You eat the food? But generally, kids do not function like this or in any way we may expect. In reality, most children are learning about new food's in progressive steps, especially at the toddler stage. There are actually multiple steps that need to happen between these points in order for a child to build confidence and comfortability eating. Just like riding a bike. We wouldn't expect to put a child on a two wheeler bike and for them to suddenly know how to start pedalling. It starts with baby steps. First they are intrigued by the bike, explore the parts, sit on the bike. Stabilizers are added, leg and foot movement is learnt, stabilizer's are removed and balance is mastered before riding off effortlessly. Our picky eating hub is all about helping you build the little steps needed to create a confident and healthy relationship with food for your little one.

Good new is...

Children's brains are extremely plastic. Meaning they are easily able to learn new things. When a child learns something new or experiences something differently, a new positive connection is made in the brain. The more they have that same experience, the stronger the connection gets and they can react differently than they had previously because of this new connection. This applies to picky eating and overcoming picky eating is all about new connections and experiences with food.
