Hear what previous parents have to say:

'We had a very fussy son who wouldn’t eat fruit or vegetables. Danielle came up with some brilliant strategies and recipe ideas and we were amazed and astounded at the transformation. Although our journey is not over yet, meal times are so much easier and the benefits to our son’s health are obvious. We cannot thank Danielle enough for her expertise, professionalism and caring demeanour – truly our food angel.'
RichardDad of Rex, 10 years old
‘Meeting Danielle was like a weight being lifted from our shoulders. She listened with such knowledge and respects how well parents know their children. Without even meeting our daughter she has made a dramatic difference to her well being and we feel confident that she is no longer missing out on vital dietary requirements. In addition we have a plan for her future dietary needs so no longer feel we are ‘practicing’ on our child. Thank you Danielle, what a blessing. We would recommend her to anybody!’
LysneyMum of Evie, 7 years old
‘As a new mother I was incredibly apprehensive about starting my baby on solid food and found the varied information online overwhelming. Danielle not only provided me with very specific and useful advice, taking me step by step through those early months, but she was also very patient and reassuring in the process.’
DeniseMum of Isaac, 9 months old
