Everybody’s got their quirks – but trying to please a fussy eater can test the patience of a saint. If you’re making one person happy, another won’t be (not sweetcorn!).
Meanwhile, allergies have to be taken very seriously.
Outsource the admin to My Fussy Eater. It’s a compendium of 130 easy recipes, pitched at anyone who has to navigate food-based likes, dislikes and intolerances on a daily basis.
The founder, Ciara Attwell, is a mother of two young children – which is shorthand for saying she’s an expert in the matter.
It’s easy to sort through the recipes: you can filter by meal type, or by intolerances to dairy, gluten, egg and nuts. You can also filter by specific ingredients.
Recipe cards present the meal in an at-a-glance format. Besides an image of the meal, and a full list of ingredients, you’ll see how many people it serves and how long it takes to prepare and cook from scratch. Save recipes you like in order to pull them up again, easily.
There’s also a meal planner function, for plotting out your family’s week in food, from which you can export items to a shopping list – making supermarket sweeps far less painful.
