Parents Centre magazine, Kiwiparent
I wrote an article for the Feb/Mar edition of Kiwiparent magazine that is published and distributed by Parents Centre NZ.
I’m a bit behind the 8 ball in posting it up, but I’ve been consumed with other priorities!
This was written as a piece to help parents of under 5’s get back into the groove after long summer holidays. But, much of the information is supportive of parents of any child who is less confident around eating. It’s also general tips and strategies that are helpful at any time of year.
Judith is mum to two boys, a tween and a teen. My dream is that every child is able to approach food from a place of safety and joy, not fear.
I delight in showing parents how to get picky eaters eating in simple, gentle, practical steps that anyone can master. I graduated from Cambridge University and have qualifications in nutrition, parent education and am a trained telephone support worker for ParentHelpline. I am currently working towards a Masters degree in Psychology. I would love to understand more of the “why” behind fussy eating and to eventually spearhead research in this area.
