Children’s feeding expert and co-founder of Foodoppi, TV chef, mindful eating coach and feeding therapist Aisling Larkin joined Alison Curtis for Food Month on Weekend Breakfast.

Aisling’s unique approach rethinks how we encourage children to eat.

She says we tend to be either sensory seekers of sensory avoiders. For example a lot of children find the liquid texture to be very off putting.

Aisling is all about changing attitudes and mindsets in order to change behaviours for the long term - for small noticeable differences and optimizing opportunities not sneaking them in.

Aisling has a Masters in Food Product Development and Culinary Innovation and she always takes into account the scientific principles and properties of food along with the psychological aspects.

She talks Alison through her best winter recipes for kids - Hot Dog Pizza, Butternut Squash Mac and Cheese and Tomato Soup with Cheesy Popcorn.
