Get Your Kids to Eat Anything is an achievable ‘how to’ for parents in the battle to overcome picky eating and ‘make new the norm’. Emily Leary’s unique 5-phase programme looks at the issue of ‘fussy eating’ in a holistic way that links imagination with food, and which situates parents alongside – not in opposition to – their children.
You’ll embark on a food discovery which will change the way you look at food and bring healthy variety into every meal for years to come. You will ease away from the same four-to-six staple meals most families fall back on, towards truly varied meal plans from day to day, week to week, to the point where introducing your whole family to new flavours, colours and textures is a breeze because new is the norm.
Each phase includes a clear explanation of what you’re going to learn and achieve, clear advice/commentary, two weeks of delicious tried and tested recipes, and hands-on activities to try out with your family, all of which will help bring that phase to life and help you and your family to progress forward.
The 5-phase approach:
Phase 1: Unfamiliar into the familiar. Introducing unfamiliar colour, flavour or texture into familiar favourites.
Phase 2: Educate. Experimenting with food, and understanding where it comes from and why it’s important.
Phase 3: Fun. Putting the fun back into food and building enthusiasm for food variety.
Phase 4: Into the unknown. Discovering new ingredients and flavour combinations.
Phase 5: Cementing variety. Learning techniques to keep your family meals varied long-term.
