Does the idea of restaurant food for your kids fill you with dread? Well it should, restaurant food is most often loaded with refined sugars, hydrogenated fats and sodium. A kiddies plate of chips contains approx. 600mg of salt – approx. 50% of a toddler’s daily requirements in one serve, a splash of tomato sauce can contribute to approximately 1-2 teaspoons of refined sugar.

Fussy Eaters vs. Problem Feeders

Fussy Eaters vs. Problem Feeders

Posted by Mandy Sacher on November 7, 2014
Meal times shouldn't be a battleground, but all too often, parents find themselves spending countless hours trying to get their children to try new foods.  Meals which have been lovingly prepared often end up being thrown away.  Fussy eating, for many well-meaning parents, is an area of concern and stress.

“As a Mum of a seven year-old and 20 month-old, I found Mandy Sacher's approach and knowledge very informative, realistic and easy to apply to my busy life. I love that she provided great suggestions of store-bought healthy food (as I don't have time to make everything from scratch) and she was available after the consultation to answer my questions. My children are thriving under Mandy's guidance.”
