Fussy Eaters, Baby’s First Foods, Gag Reflexes & More

Since this episode was recorded I’ve been so impatient to release it as this episode has something for ALL mums. From ..

  • when and how to introduce first foods,
  • why kids might be fussy with food,
  • what to do about it,
  • clear signs for when to seek help and there are so many fabulous links and resources that Mandy shares in this episode.

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.
