This podcast episode is the first of a two part series on the psychology on how to reduce your picky eater’s anxiety.
I interviewed Dr Sarah Mundy, a Consultant Clinical Psychologist, who has worked with children and families for 20 years. She has recently written a parenting handbook and a series of interactive children’s picture books to help with those tricky times we all experience in early childhood – one of which focuses upon healthy eating. Much of her work is with children who have been adopted.
In this podcast episode she shares brilliant tips on how to reduce picky eater anxiety.
What is a picky eater?
How should you help a picky eater manage their anxiety at meals?
What are the barriers that parents face with their fussy eaters that lead to anxiety rather than food freedom?
Does a parent’s own perceptions and beliefs around food and nutrition influence their child?
Tips on how to handle picky eaters with high anxiety at the table.
