The Food Detective: Which Fussy Eating Character Do You Have In Your House?

Mums of fussy eaters, here are 14 things you’ll know!

1. You’ve lost count how many times you’ve had to clean someone’s dinner off the floor.

2. World War III may erupt if different foods on the plate are touching.

3. There is only ONE acceptable pasta shape.

4. And the pasta CANNOT be mixed with the sauce.

5. No matter how small you chop up the veggies and hide them in their meals, they can always find it!

6. When you make a meal they actually enjoy, you feel like crying with happiness.

7. “Here comes the aeroplane” always ends in tears.

Should we be bribing fussy kids with dessert every night?

8. If you dare to make something new, there will be roughly one million questions about what’s in it.

9. Finding a restaurant that they will eat at is a huge relief.

10. If you had a dollar for every time someone had said, “Just cook one meal and they’ll just have to deal with it,” you’d have MILLIONS.

11. You can always rely on the “safe food” when times get tough, whether that’s rice, potatoes, sausages etc.

12. You’ve bribed them with dessert if they finish all their greens.

13. Pot plants, down the back of the couch. The kids have hidden food in all sorts of weird places to get out of eating it!

14. If it’s not served on their favourite plate, prepare for tears and tantrums.
