A. It's hard work! But it pays to be persistent. Over the years, I've worked out a number of techniques to help parents and used them on our kids when they were younger (and we had one of the world's fussiest eaters in our daughter!).

Paleo Diet basics

The Paleo (Paleolithic) Diet is the modern equivalent to what our early hunter-gatherer ancestors ate. It's named for the Paleolithic Era which is defined as the time period from two million years ago up until approx 10,000 years ago when agriculture and settled life in villages and towns began. You'll also hear it called the Caveman Diet, Hunter-Gatherer Diet, Primal Diet or Stoneage Diet.

Product Review: HelloFresh Meals

Cooking a healthy dinner from fresh ingredients is a big goal of mine this year. At the moment, there’s only two of us at home as the 20-something vegetarian is travelling in Vietnam so it’s never been easier.

Dinner for two, no ingredients to exclude, huge choice, but after a long day writing, I have to admit feeling brain-dead about the ‘daily dinner decision’ as I call it. You know the drill, thinking of what to cook or finding a recipe and heading out for a quick shop, or peering inside the fridge or freezer and doing a mental jig with the ingredients (this goes with that or that or that).

Q. Why do kids refuse to eat vegies?

A. Lots of reasons ranging from the colour (green means 'yuk' to many kids), texture, as well as their strong, distinctive taste. If your family dinners are a battle zone over vegetables, then you'll be heartened to discover another plausble reason - family genetics! New research shows there may be a genetic reason for this dislike of the humble vegetable.
