Help your child get back on track with Abbott Nutrition's eating plan

If feeding your little one feels like a battleground - don't worry, you're not alone! Over half of children go through a fussy eating phase, and it's natural for you to be concerned about whether they're getting enough food variety.

So to tempt your child into healthy eating habits, Abbott Nutrition has created this 12-week plan. It's packed with tips and ideas to help your child to enjoy more foods and flavours.

Be Prepared: Every child is different, so don't worry if a stage in the plan doesn't work first time. Simply try the step again and keep going!

Support fussy eaters from age one to ten with PaediaSure Shake

Healthy eating habits can take time, so PaediaSure Shake is designed to help support your child's growth and development while they're learning to enjoy more types of food. It can be used alongside or in between meals.

Why choose PaediaSure Shake?

  • It helps fussy eaters get the right balance of essential nutrients to help them thrive.
  • It includes protein, vitamin D, and calcium which are needed for normal growth and development of bone in children; as well as iron to contribute to normal cognitive development of children.
  • Children enjoy the simple flavours, which means less stress and worry for you.

Note: PaediaSure Shake is for children who are generally well. It is not intended for children with feeding difficulties or faltering growth due to underlying medical conditions. If your child is continually fussy or you have any concerns about their eating habits, discuss this with your healthcare professional.

PaediaSure Shake is a food supplement drink mix for children aged one to ten years. Food supplements should not be used as a substitute for a varied diet and a healthy lifestyle.

Manage mealtimes, begin to reduce stress and learn to understand your child's hunger signals

Start by getting to know your child's eating habits better (and yours too) - you may find some surprises! Understanding their appetite and your behaviour will help make mealtimes more enjoyable for you both.


Week one

  • Consider what may affect your child's eating habits, and keep a food diary to see when and what they eat. Snacks or juice may fill them up before meals, or they could be less hungry at certain times.

Week two

  • Set a regular time for each meal. A two to four hour gap between eating can help your little one learn that missing a meal may make them feel hungry.
  • To clearly mark the end of mealtimes, take your child's plate away. Then encourage them to wait until their next mealtime, or leave the unfinished plate somewhere else for them to finish.
  • Week three

    • Help understand your child's hunger signals with 'hunger prompts' - ask whether they are hungry or full, and describe how these feel. Then adjust your schedule to feed your child when they seem hungry, and stop when they seem full.

    Week four

    • Make mealtimes brief, fun and simple. Be aware of your own stress, as your child may be influenced by your habits. Soon they'll learn to eat because they're hungry, not just because you want them to!

Focus on healthy food options

There's a world of exciting healthy food out there for your little one to enjoy. Try these creative tips for introducing and exploring a rainbow of snacks and tastes with your child.

Week five

  • Offer a wide variety of attractive and colourful foods on your child's plate; they won't be able to resist picking pieces up and trying them. Try to ignore any mess and let them enjoy the food!
  • Soften the impact of new foods by serving them alongside complimentary favourites. Introduce new tastes as toppings on food they already enjoy, and avoid labelling food 'good' or 'bad'.

Week six

  • Spark their interest and make trying foods fun and positive for your little one. Turn exploring healthy food into a game such as scoring it out of ten or by giving it funny names, or try letting your child help you grow vegetables or help with the cooking.

Week seven

  • Focus on introducing new textures, and encourage your child to tolerate different foods on their plate - even if they dislike them. This can help to prevent your little one wanting foods not to touch each other. Always praise them for trying something new.

Week eight

  • Continue to introduce new foods into various recipes. How about making a colourful tomato sauce for a pasta lover, or adding a taste like raspberries to rice pudding.

Establish fun, positive family mealtimes and consistently offer new foods

Mealtimes are not just about eating - after all the progress you've made; focus on enjoying your time around the table together. Keep trying new foods and you'll be on the way to healthy, happy eating.

Week nine

  • Create a family table by bringing your child to sit at the same level as you. Aim to eat with them at least once a day, and eat a range of foods. Reward them for staying at the table - good table manners deserve a big 'well done'!

Week ten

  • Give your little one more control and let them decide how much they need to eat. Getting them involved with preparing a meal can also encourage involvement and interest in food.

Week eleven

  • Aim for eating to become normal and relaxed; no longer a source of attention for your little one. Try to offer new foods every other day, and try not to feel 'let down' if they don't always eat as well as you'd like.

Week twelve

  • Look back on the positive changes in your child - make them a habit for everyday life. Keep trying new foods yourself and find ways to make mealtimes enjoyable for everyone.
