Fussy Eating


This workshop will take you through the definitions of fussy eating, why it occurs, what you can do to address it, as well as what things you should avoid. This will arm you with the necessary skills and knowledge to work with families whose children are in their early years and susceptible to fussy eating, as well as those who already show fussy eating tendencies. It compliments our ‘Nutrition for the Childcare Practitioner’ series, alongside our Starting Solids, Healthy Eating in Children, and our latest Reflux, Colic and Food sensitivity courses.

This is a taught course, with opportunities to ask questions and reflect on current practice, benefiting from the presence of our highly qualified and experienced trainer.
