Today we’re talking fussy eaters. Those of you who have been following my blog for a while will know that when it comes to fussy eating, we had a hell of a struggle.
So when I was contacted by Katerina – wife, mum and counsellor – about her exciting new project, Foody Tales, which she’s just launched on Kickstarter, I knew I had to spread the news because fussy eating is no joke, and anything that can help a mama out in the fussy eating world in which she has become embroiled in, is worth its weight in gold as far as I’m concerned.
The power of storytelling
Foody Tales is a story and recipe book in one, with magical stories for families to share and easy recipes to prepare. The main aim of the book is to encourage children to try new foods – now that’s a mission I can get behind!
Remembering food is fun!
Somehow along the fussy eating battle we can be forgiven for forgetting that food should be enjoyable and fun. But with these stories of magic, love and adventure even the fussiest eater want to try something new and experiment with different tastes.
Reading a magical tale together and then preparing the recipe will make both come alive. With that said, I am really excited to bring you two of the story recipes from within the book free for you to enjoy in this blog post….
An end to the mum struggle?
Katerina came from a similar place as you, me and so many others – frustrated during different periods of motherhood, not least when her children began to refuse some of the meals she would cook for them, becoming increasingly fussier eaters.
And we all know how much that can make you want to tear your hair out!!!!
That’s when she came up with the idea of incorporating food and meal ideas into magical stories in order to encourage her children to experiment.
Supporting a vision
I really love this unique idea which Katerina is launching on Kickstarter to raise funds to get it published and give the opportunity for others to enjoy it along the way. In addition, 25% of profits from the book will be going to Cancer Research.
You can support her at the book at her Kickstarter project page here.
