Fussy Eating Package

Managing Fussy Eating


Feeding children can be challenging. I know!

Because as well as having helped thousands of parents feed their children successfully, my children are still a work in progress.

Pre-consultation assessment and mealtime video analysis
I’ll send you an assessment form to complete. We’ll look at all aspects of your child’s feeding and medical history, the foods your child ate in the past and those eaten now (through a 3-day food diary). You can also send in a video of a typical mealtime for analysis (this is optional).


First Consultation
This online (or in-person) consultation takes between 60-90 minutes. We’ll talk through your assessment form in more detail, and we’ll talk through proven feeding strategies. Following the consultation, you’ll send your personalised plan along with useful resources like tip sheets, background information and recipes (if required).


Second Consultation
This online (in-person) consultation takes 60 minutes. We’ll take a look together at what has worked well and troubleshoot challenges. If it’s appropriate, we’ll discuss additional useful feeding strategies (such as food chaining, tasting programmes and food activities) to help your child become more adventurous with new foods.


Follow-up Consultations

Follow up consultations take up to 45 minutes. The aim is to support you as you make changes and work with you to find solutions to feeding challenges that you’re still having.

Unlimited email support
Throughout the programme, I will be on hand to offer you support via email. You won’t be on your own.

  I’ll be honest with you. There’s no guaranteed end time to your child increasing the number of foods they eat.


Our aim in working together is for you to become confident in consistently implementing proven helpful feeding strategies. Unfortunately, there are no quick fixes when it comes to fussy eating. And it takes hard work, consistency and commitment to see changes in ‘what’ foods your child eats.

In the meantime, I’ll ensure your child is getting all the nutrients that he/she needs to grow and thrive. And that your mealtimes will become less stressful and more enjoyable for the whole family.   I’ve been a registered dietitian for twenty years and have worked with thousands of parents over this time. I’m a highly skilled in motivational interviewer and behaviour change therapist. And I have completed several feeding therapy courses for health care professionals.   Choosing the right person to get help and advice from can be confusing. Many people claim to be nutrition, and feeding experts yet have minimal knowledge and may give unsafe information to you and your child. Anybody can tell themselves a Nutritionist, a Nutritional Therapist, or a Children’s Feeding Expert. They’re not allowed by law to call themselves dietitians.   The title ‘Dietitian’ is legally protected in Ireland; only people who are registered with CORU can use this title. Dietitians registered with CORU meet the highest standards of professional conduct, education, training and competence.


  Of course! I’m also a lactation consultant (IBCLC), and fully supportive of mothers feeding their children for as long as they wish. There’s no reason why you can’t continue to enjoy all the benefits of breastfeeding and put helpful feeding strategies into place.

“If you are like me and have a fussy eater on your hands then Solid Start is where you need to go. Not only did this course make me look at the way I associate food with my son, it also made me look at the way I treat meal times. As Caroline says it should not be stressful, that is the biggest lesson I learned today, that and how important family meals are. I have come away really excited and enthused about developing a healthy and happy attitude for our whole family from today on. Caroline’s approach is very relatable as you know that she is speaking from experience having 4 children herself. She isn’t just doling out information from books, she has tried and tested what she is saying. Her honestly about things that have and have not worked for her make you very comfortable in the knowledge that you are doing a good job. I would highly recommend attending this class”
