Do you have a fussy eater?
You are not alone! Fussiness is so common, in fact fussy eating has been reported to occur in as many as 20-60% of children, peaking between 18 months to 3 years. When your child starts refusing foods they usually love or is reluctant to engage with foods or mealtimes, it can send your stress levels soaring and can fill you with anxiety around mealtimes. We're here to help!
In response to your feedback, we've worked with our Children’s Dietitian, Lucy Upton to adapt four of your existing favourites slightly to create our new Simple range.

Lucy Upton - The Children's Dietitian
Lucy is our resident dietitian and is highly experienced with the management of fussy eating in children. Alongside her nutrition background, she has additional training and qualifications in feeding therapy for children. She supports parents 1:1 and in
groups online with children’s feeding difficulties and fussy eating. Lucy is also just beginning the weaning journey with her daughter, Aurelia.
“My 4 year old is very fussy but will eat a few of these meals, which is a lifesaver when working full time. Also great to know she's eating healthy while being so convenient”
“I have a fussy eater and she loves these pots. Great for when you’re having a busy week or a takeaway. No preparation needed and you can even cook from frozen!”
“Delicious, properly delicious food. Always delivered as expected and on time. Much better than I could ever cook myself, even if I had hours in the kitchen! My picky 2 year old loves most things.”
What's the difference between the original and 'simple' meals?
We have adapted four of our bestselling meals to have smoother sauces, reduced herbs and spices, and also slightly increased the volume of carbohydrates - three small changes which support little ones going through a ‘fussy eating’ stage and need their meals to taste, look and feel a little more familiar.
My little one doesn't like sauce touching pasta/rice, are your sauces separate?
Due to the nature of how our meals are packed and the cooking instructions, our sauces will naturally mix or touch with the rice in the Simple Chicken Korma, the pasta in the Simple Pasta Bolognese, the potato topping on the Simple Fish Pie and the orzo in the Simple Mediterranean Veg Orzo. If your little one is unsure, to support exposure and the learning of new foods, you could encourage them to help mix the food together during the cooking process (supervised, of course!), to give them a sense of control and understanding. Alternatively, if your child struggles with this, you may want to offer an alternative plain rice/pasta on the side.
Can I swap out the meals in the bundle?
The Simple Meals bundle is a fixed bundle, so we are unable to swap meals out. You can however build your own box of meals, which includes the Simple range, our original meals, and a range of snacks!
Can I buy the meals separately?
Yes! You can build your own box of meals on our order page - this includes our Simple meals, original meals, and a range of snacks. The minimum order is 8 pots.
Why is my child refusing food?
You are not alone! Fussy eating has been reported to occur in as many as 20-60% of children. Your child might be refusing food due to child development, sensory sensitivities, genetics, personality, learnt experiences around food, or food parenting and approaches to food behaviours. Or they may not even be going through a fussy phase, but possibly feeling unwell, constipated, or are in the early stages of weaning. Our resident Children's Dietitian talks about this in more detail in our Fussy Eating Guide, which you will receive for free when you order our Simple Meals Bundle, or you can purchase the guide separately for £8.99 here.
What age is the Simple range for?
Our Simple meals are designed with fussy eaters in mind, and fussy eating usually peaks in toddlers between 18 months to 3 years. However, these meals are suitable for babies 8 months+. As these meals have smoother sauces and reduced herbs and spices, they are also ideal for babies who may be moving on from purees on their weaning journey.
My child is allergic to nuts. Can I swap out the Simple Chicken Korma in the bundle?
Some of our meals are made without allergens but all may contain traces of celery, crustaceans, eggs, fish, gluten, lupin, milk, molluscs, mustard, nuts, peanuts, sesame, soy and sulphites, due to the nature of our production kitchen and supply chain. If your child has a serious nut allergy, we recommend you do not order our products at this current time.
I'm raising my little one as a veggie, but your fussy meals contain meat! Can I swap out meals?
The Simple Meals bundle is a fixed bundle, so we are unable to swap meals out. You can however build your own box of meals - if your little one is a fussy eater, we recommend the following which are all meat-free: Simple Mediterranean Orzo, Mac & Cheese, Mini Banana Pancakes, Hidden Veg Pasta Sauce. You can buy our 14-page Fussy Eating Guide for £8.99 here.
