Join the Family Mealtime Revolution!
A powerful, holistic approach to easier, healthier, more enjoyable mealtimes - and to helping your child develop a positive relationship with food.
It works even if your child is a picky eater.
YOU'VE TRIED MAKING CHANGES TO WHAT YOUR CHILD EATS, BUT IT FEELS IMPOSSIBLE BECAUSE THERE'S TOO MUCH RESISTANCE
So even when you try, you keep ending up back at square one.
Feeling like this means it's easy to beat yourself up. I've been there, and I get it - and I can tell you that it's not your fault.
Parents are told what to feed their children, but there's precious little help on the how. This isn't just about family-friendly recipes and hidden veg - or you would have solved it by now!
The longer this goes on, the more time and emotional energy it's taking up. The more opportunities your child is missing to try new food, and to eat a balanced and varied diet. The more time you're wasting making multiple meals to cater to different preferences. And the longer you're putting your own desire for easier, healthier, more enjoyable family meals on hold.
Despite what you might have heard or tried already, there are proven techniques that actually can change the way your child eats - even if you are dealing with picky eating.
IF YOUR CHILD'S REFUSAL TO GO OUT OF THEIR FOOD COMFORT ZONE IS STOPPING THEM FROM EATING A BALANCED AND VARIED DIET, THIS IS THE STRATEGY YOU NEED -
identify what's behind their food preferences, attitudes and behaviours
put a tailor-made action plan in place to change hearts and minds first, so that behaviour change follows naturally
work consistently and effectively towards long-term change for you and your child
The fact that you're reading this means that you're looking for something better for your child - and for you. And you've found it here.

How it works...
We'll start off with a one-hour 1:1 Zoom session together, where you tell me what your goals are, what challenges you are facing, about your child's eating, and anything you have tried in the past to improve your family's diet. We will then come up with a plan together to help you meet your goals.
After the session, you will get materials to work on until our next session, with information and action steps to try out. Two weeks later we will meet again for a 45 minute 1:1 session online and look at how things went - the wins, the challenges, do any problem-solving that needs doing - and plan for the next two weeks. We will have 7 x 45 minute 1:1 sessions in total.
Once you have completed the programme you will be fully armed with the skills, know-how and confidence to keep your family's diet on a new, easier, healthier, happier track.
...and what to expect from me
You are the reason I do this and I want you to succeed in making changes, and making them stick.
I will use all the skills and expertise I have at my disposal as a family health coach and children's eating specialist to do this and support you, the expert on your own family, to bring about the change you want to see.
You can expect me to help you overcome barriers, cheer you on, celebrate your successes, and be there for you with understanding, empathy and good humour, every step of the way.
How much to join?
From before they were born, you have been budgeting for your child's needs. There was the cost of a pram (£637 average in the UK) and baby clothes (£997 average in the first year). Since then maybe you have paid for baby and toddler classes, afterschool clubs, perhaps music lessons or tutoring (around £400 a term on average).
Compared with these other expenses, the Family Mealtime Revolution 1:1 Programme is a small investment in you and your child. But one that will pay back priceless dividends in health and happiness for the rest of your lives.
It will have significant benefits for you - for your time and energy, the ease and enjoyment of family mealtimes, and even the quality of your own diet. And it can transform what your child eats and their attitude to new and healthy food, so that you are confident that they will eat a nutritious diet now and in the future, because you will be able to teach them how to eat well for life.
For little more than a term's worth of piano lessons, or less than half the cost of the first year of baby clothes, you can enjoy easier mealtimes, help your child to eat better and teach them to develop a lifelong positive relationship with food.
You can join the 1:1 coaching programme for four installments of £137, monthly. Or a one-off payment of £497.
What if you change your mind?
The Family Mealtime Revolution has two aims:
To help you teach your child to eat well so that they try new foods, eat a more balanced and varied diet, and develop a positive relationship with food.
To help you feel less stress or anxiety over what your child is eating, and more enjoyment and satisfaction from feeding them and eating with them.
I am confident that if you implement the strategies and techniques we agree on in our sessions, then you WILL see results.
However, if after our first 1:1 session, you don't feel it's right for you, then I will give you your money back. No quibbles, and 100% guaranteed.
And if you need to stop the programme at any point after that, you will get a pro-rata refund for any unused, pre-paid sessions.
Extra support included in the programme
To help you get powerful and lasting results from the Family Mealtime Revolution Programme, alongside the 1:1 coaching sessions with me, you will also get:
Easy, private access to my support between sessions via a secure walkie-talkie app that allows us to exchange voice and text messages
Lifetime access to programme materials, including updates and any new materials added after our sessions have ended
Complimentary tickets to any public workshops I run while you are in the programme
Frequently Asked Questions
Your clients sound like they get good results - but I how do I know this will work for me?
My expertise in children's eating, means that I offer you safe, realistic and effective guidance. At the same time, as a fully qualified health coach, I am trained to empower you to make effective change in your own life. This is how my clients get results. I don't hand out advice, and leave you to try and work out how to apply it to your own life (then wonder why it doesn't work). This isn't a cookie-cutter programme - its whole purpose is to work with each family's different needs.
My child's a fussy eater and I've tried everything to get them to eat more healthily - why will this be any different?
In the past, if you've relied on trying to piece together strategies for yourself from social media or the internet; or tried advice from well-meaning friends and family; or taken recommendations from experts that focus on one particular aspect of eating, then you'll find the Family Mealtime Revolution different.
I will help you identify the things that have been holding you back, and come up with ways of making lasting change in your own unique family, while taking an evidence-based, holistic approach to your child's eating (rather than focusing narrowly on only one area like nutrition or behaviour). So don't feel as though there's nothing you can do - there almost always is!
I'm not the best cook and I don't have loads of time to cook from scratch, can this still help me?
Absolutely! I meet you where you're at and we take it from there. Cooking skills are not an issue (in fact, you can use this to your advantage). And there's definitely no requirement to spend hours in the kitchen (my clients often end up spending less time cooking by the end of the programme). The idea is to get you results, so if cooking isn't your thing, then we will build a plan of action that takes that into account.
I'm afraid that my own relationship with food might be influencing my child's eating. Can you help with that?
Yes - this is something that often comes up for parents: whether it's yo-yo dieting, adult fussy eating, or feeling at sea when it comes to parenting your child around food. And the fact that you're already wondering about this is actually a great start. You'll be able to bring it to our sessions and we can work on it together and put strategies in place to support you as you make the changes you want to make.
Just to recap...
You will get:
1 hour initial online 1:1 private coaching session with me and 7 x 45 minute follow-ups to support you to make the changes you want for you and your child (£800 value)
Support from me between sessions to answer any questions that come up (£200 value)
Lifetime access to all materials, including updates; and complimentary access to any workshops I run while you're in the programme (£200 value)
That's a total value of £1200, for an initial payment of as little as £137.
