A common catch 22 situation among the parents of fussy eaters is that they would rather see their child eat junk as opposed to letting them go hungry. This is understandable but if the habit continues for a long period of time it will only result in the child becoming more demanding about the foods they eat.
If your child’s nutrition is a taboo in your household then it is time to take action. Hypnotherapy for fussy eaters has been found to be extremely effective. The idea is that the hypnotherapist will help your child to retrain their subconscious mind in the same way hypnosis can erase a smoking or chocolate habit.
Hypnotherapy in this case can be great fun as children have huge imaginations and can picture any given scenario with far more ease than an adult.
The hynotherapist will introduce the child to some sort of imaginative scenario, for instance the child adventures into the woods and to visit all the towns people. Whilst there he is treated to a number of different and diverse feasts. Because he felt like he should be a polite guest he tried each of the foods and was surprised to find that he enjoyed most of them.
This is a similar sort of process to that of treating children with IBS, where often the children are told to imagine locking up their bladder behind a huge gate and locking it with a beautiful rainbow coloured key.
If you are concerned about your child’s eating habits and are fed up of cooking the same few meals in rotation then hypnotherapy could be the answer.
