The Cafe, this Thursday, 16th July

I was delighted to be invited onto The Café last week for an interview with Mel. It was done via remote and as happens occasionally, not everything went according to plan!

Mel could see and hear me, but I wasn’t able to see her. It made for an interesting interview as it wasn’t always obvious when it was my turn to talk, and of course I couldn’t see her response. I may have waved my arms around more than usual!

It was, however, still a great opportunity to raise awareness around some of the issues facing families where picky eating is a challenge. The longer I am involved working with parents, the more I realise that some of the biggest problems are caused by a lack of understanding and the gap in support.

The segment whizzed by and I felt like I was just getting warmed up when it was all over. Even the producer remarked that it’s such a big topic and we just barely scratched the surface. I totally agree and feel this should be something that gets far more media attention. A weekly segment on a popular show would be a great start.

Hopefully I was able to share some valuable information with parents and this has just made me more determined to look for ways that I can raise awareness as to how much of an impact having a picky eater makes in the lives of families.
