  • Getting your kids involves with cooking might help. Starting a veggie patch so they see the process and getting invested into growing their own food.

  • I reckon it’s just a phase. Be patient, keep adding new foods and they’ll soon come round…..in time

  • There are so many wonderful ideas on line about how to make food interesting.
    I use biscuit cutters to make sandwich shapes.
    Tell them that today is a red day so everything on their plate will be red (or whatever colour) then give them cherry tomatoes, fresh capsicum, chopped apple, dried cranberries, Babybel cheese, little sausages with tomato sauce – use your imagination.
    Chop up ingredients and get them to make their own sandwiches and wraps.
    Get them to help you to grow vegetables and involve them in cooking.
    Ask them to plan a meal. Look at recipe books (or just the pictures) together.
    It’s about enjoyment as much as about eating.
    Good luck :)
