About the author
I’ve been a dietitian for over 15 years and fussy eating is the thing I get asked about most. I've helped hundreds if not thousands of parents like you via my clinics in the NHS and privately, and I wanted to share my approach to helping with fussy eating and out of this stressfreemealtimes.org was born.
The D.E.-S.T.R.E.S.S. approach was perfect for us. It really has made such a difference, it really has. I felt like nothing was ever going to help.

Being able to rate the stress of mealtimes right at the start was an eye opener because for our example we’ve gone from fours and fives out of five in how stressed we are to ones, so it’s good to see how that’s come about.
