Give your kids a role

The moments before food is offered can be a perfect opportunity for engagement that can help make it more likely a child will eat it! We have advice and practical tips to make it a simple and free process for you.

Food is ready

…but will they eat it?

Once you have started understanding your child’s preferences, engaging them with different veg, and making slow but important changes to the food you are eating, you will have got the veg as far as the plate. But how do you get that veg from the plate to your children’s bellies?

Dr Clare Holley

We got expert Dr Clare Holley, a child psychologist specialising in encouraging children to eat veg, to share her secrets to success.

Giving children a sense of ownership in the meal can make a big difference to their feelings going into it and the pride they take in it. The serving process can be a great way to add to their sense of involvement in a meal, whether they have helped make it or not!
