Who are we?
Dr Gemma Mitchell Dr Claire FarrowDr Emma Haycraft.jpg

We are a group of academics based at Loughborough University and Aston University whose reasearch looks at various aspects of children's eating behaviour and parenting at mealtimes.

Importantly, we are also mothers to young children.

We know that difficult mealtimes can be frustrating, stressful and upsetting for both parents and children. We also know that many parents look for information on feeding problems, but often can't find credible and useful advice.

We want to empower you with the information and skills you need to understand and manage common feeding problems – and to promote happy, healthy eating.

We look forward to hearing from you.
