How to Deal With a Fussy Eater
Is your child a picky eater? When it comes to meal times, kids don't always make it easy, especially when you have to deal with a fussy eater. When my son was a baby, he ate just about anything.

Fussy, fussy, fussy. Here's some tips I found that helped to make the food battle that little bit easier.

I was made to feel like my son's behaviour was my fault and I struggled, wondering what I had done wrong. I felt like I had failed as a mother. I was constantly drained and exhausted. Every one else made it look so easy. Everything was a battle and nothing worked. I didn't know how I was going to get through it.
