Mumpreneur Tackles Fussy Eaters And Makes Managing Family Mealtimes Easy with New Book – Mealtimes without Mayhem


NEW SOUTH WALES, Australia September, 2012 – Mums all over the world are well aware that when it comes to mealtimes with fussy eaters, managing family mealtimes can be stressful. Feeding fussy eaters can become a dreaded part of the daily routine of a Mum’s already hectic schedule, and dining out with kids is almost impossible when just one wrong choice can become a disaster. One Mumpreneur who had had ‘enough’ of the stressful mealtimes in her family discovered how to make family mealtimes fun and stress-free for the entire family.

Joanne Turner, Mumpreneur and Author of ‘Mealtimes Without Mayhem’ shares, “Mealtimes can be hard to manage and a stressful time for many families with fussy eaters so sometimes families avoid proper sit-down dinners or dining out with children. But with the right advice and support tools, mealtimes can become an enjoyable bonding experience with long term relationship and communication benefits.”

Joanne’s new book – Mealtimes without Mayhem – is an easy-to-follow, how-to guidebook that is helping Australian families eat together in peace.

Family mealtimes can be very stressful for most households, especially those with little kids who are fussy eaters or toddlers who see food as another thing to throw around. At the same time, “Family mealtimes are an opportunity for parents to establish family traditions, encourage healthy eating habits, and to be positive role models for their children. Other benefits of family mealtimes include building unity among the family, improved socialisation and language development, and providing children with the most important sense of safety and security to ensure they grow into healthy well-balanced individuals,” says Joanne.

The book Mealtimes without Mayhem will give readers the tools to:

  • Understand the importance of family mealtimes.
  • Create family traditions.
  • Manage mealtime mayhem with effective techniques.
  • Establish routines and understand behaviours.
  • Learn how to deal with fussy eaters.
  • Build a strong foundation by connecting through communication.
  • Develop good manners and dining etiquette.
  • Understand the philosophy of food and the ritual of sharing meals.
  • Create nourishing family meals with sustainable cooking and planning.

Dr Bill Doherty from the University of Minnesota says, “Research shows the most important thing a child can do to assure long term wellbeing is to eat meals with his or her family. The more family meals together, the better!”

Mealtimes without Mayhem will be available online at, on October 17. Filled with practical solutions from a diverse range of experts, Mealtimes without Mayhem dishes out handy support tools, including a helpful weekly meal planner and healthy eating tips, for the whole family.
