Such an important topic and when you hear the statistics that Joyce shares in this interview its truly so strange that we don’t talk about it more. The Blues, Depression….. We need to talk about it …

Since this episode was released I’ve had so many mums tell me how helpful the information was. Seeing as Mandy is so passionate and is a wealth of knowledge on the topic of fussy foods, dysphagia and fussy eaters this episode just had to be included in the Best of Series. Mandy also shares her wisdom around oral development and how it relates to speech and sensory development which is something that I also share with my mum’s in practice. It’s a “must listen to” episode where we talk about….
I do my best to find passionate experts but honestly, Mandy had so much passion for what she does that it was such a joy to have her share on Mum’s The Word. Because it was full of gold, the episode runs over my (suggested) 40 mins – well let’s be honest, most of them have so far!! as clearly my guests are so passionate about helping other mums and its obvious we all love what we do.
Please do share this episode and it’s links/resources with those around you struggling to get their little ones to eat or enjoy food. Its such an important topic and this episode highlights once again, that we are all in this parenting world together. It truly takes a village to raise a child so please don’t keep these pearls of wisdom to yourself but share it with the new mum’s in your circles.
