I’m a registered dietitian, lactation consultant and creator of Solid Start. And I’m also busy feeding four happy, healthy eaters of my own!
You won’t find me making my own nut butter, my kids choose chocolate cake over courgette every time, and we eat takeaways!
But we also enjoy successful and stress-free mealtimes. And I’ve combined my twenty years experience as a dietitian and my 13 years as a parent to help you get to do this too.
Not a superfood, sneaky veg or sticker chart in sight!
8 easy steps to successful and enjoyable mealtimess
I recently completed the online Feeding Your Toddler course, & it was the best decision I ever made!! Mealtimes are a much more relaxing & positive experience for us all now, as I found Caroline’s information so straight-forward, sensible & easy to put into practice. It’s taken all the stress from meal planning for my fussy toddler & I have newfound confidence about presenting new foods that I had definitely lost somewhere along the way! I couldn’t recommend this course highly enough.
I really really enjoyed this course. I found it very informative and it gave me the peace of mind that I’m going the right thing. The information about serving meals family-style really appealed to me. And the recipes are fab too. I loved learning about what’s normal in feeding, food throwing and fussiness etc. Because although I don’t have a fussy toddler yet, thank God! I’m now well equipped with the information should this arise which it inevitably will. Thanks for all the information and a great course. I’ll be using it as my go-to feeding manual going forward.Kerry

And although I’ve targeted this course towards younger children the feeding strategies are appropriate for children of all ages. I use these approaches in my home everyday with my kids aged 13, 11, 7 and 4.

I’m a registered dietitian and that means by law I must give evidence-based information. Nutrition is an evolving science and guidelines change from time to time and may differ slightly between countries. The advice provided on what to feed your child is based on current Irish nutrition guidelines for children aged 1-5 years. However, the advice on how to feed your child is the same regardless of where you live.
Absolutely! These are the same feeding strategies that I use in my Fussy Eating Support Package. And this course is a great place to start if you’ve already got a fussy eater on your hands. However, depending on your child’s level of fussiness, you might also benefit from a follow-up one-to-one consultation for more support and personalised troubleshooting.
