If you’re currently struggling with a child who is a fussy eater I’ve got good news.

Somewhere around the age of 13, there’s a good chance they’re going to turn into a professional eater.

Seriously, these days Flea could eat me out of house and home.

When she comes home from school, or a sports practice, she is ravenous.

It’ll start with an apple. Then some grapes. Maybe strawberries. A Pop-Tart. Or two.

Then, “When’s dinner?” 

After dinner snacks might include a slice of toast, or a piece of cheese. Perhaps a packet of crisps. Or three.

On the one hand, I don’t mind. Flea is mostly making good food choices. I’m also aware that her appetite is due in part to growth. Seriously, she’s easily an inch taller than me, now. Flea is also doing regular sports and coaching sessions, so she needs lots of calories to support that activity.

But it can get hard to keep her full. Not to mention expensive.

Like many teens, one of Flea’s very favourite places to eat is Pizza Express. For starters, there are the world’s best dough balls and I will not debate this with you.

I’m partial to the American Hot pizza, and Flea will pretty much devour anything on the menu.

If you’re looking for a family meal out with your hungry kids, I can definitely recommend Pizza Express. And thanks to my brand new giveaway, you can win a £40 Gift Card by entering my competition this month – see below for details!
