4 Tomatoes 'From the start' (€225 per session)
You think it’s important to get it right from the beginning. It’s easier to teach eating habits from an early age. And that certainly also applies to learning healthy eating habits. Everything is still new for your baby; not only the taste, but also, for example, the structure and the smell. Your child doesn’t know what’s happening, your child only knows milk! It makes sense that it takes a while to get used to other flavours. Sweet is an “easy taste” and breast milk is sweet for a reason.
It’s important to introduce your child to different flavours and types of food at a very young age (as soon as your child starts with the first bites). It’s all a matter of getting used to, and only then can a child develop's their own taste. Tastes can change over the course of a lifetime, but the foundation is set already with the first bites, in the first years of life, so it’s definitely worthwhile to be aware of this.
4 tomatoes: In 4-5 sessions, different eating moments are discussed with your child from 4-6 months to 1.5 years. Groente & Meer will analyze and discuss these videos during a video consultation with you.

Testimonials: Find out what others who used Groente & Meer thought about the services
Our 2.5 year old toddler has never been such a good eater, but lately she’s been refusing her food almost every evening during supper. Meat was still in it, but she didn’t want to try any of the vegetables and potatoes anymore. As a parent, I thought this was a shame and wanted her to learn to eat more vegetables and try new things. With this request for help, I went to Victoire’s consultation hour. During the consultation hour, she immediately gave me concrete tips to use in practice. In addition, she has given extensive explanations about the eating behaviour of small children, which is based on scientific research. I also made a video recording of our evening meal and sent it to her. It was very helpful and educational to watch the recording together. Victoire gave very positive feedback and instructive feedback on how to deal with my daughter’s eating behaviour (ex. Paying more attention to her signals). I notice that we have definitely taken steps with my daughter.
Our feedback on your services is that we are extremely pleased with the help that you've given to us - we would be more than happy to write a lengthy review about your work and to recommend you to others. Your help had been wonderful.
Our daughter wasn’t a good eater right from the first bites. As soon as I started searching the internet, I quickly lost track. It was therefore very nice to be able to discuss all our questions with Victoire. Thanks to her extensive knowledge and experience (both professional and private), we were sure that we were in good hands with her. It was also very helpful to watch the videos with her. As a result, we have received many useful insights, tips and self-confidence (!). Our daughter is now 1 year old and now she tastes everything, likes quite a lot of vegetables, and she eats all meals with us. And most importantly, thanks to Victoire we have achieved this in a relaxed way, without stress and without much hassle at the table.
Victoire came to us for my daughter Puck, Puck didn’t want to eat an evening meal yet. Victoire then filmed us once during the warm meal. We watched this film piece by piece together and I got some valuable advice. She also clearly mentioned the things that went well and that I did well as a mother. This gave me the confidence that we were going to succeed and with that in mind I was able to get started very positively. We look back on this process with great satisfaction. Victoire is a very warm person which makes you feel at ease quickly and so does your child(ren). During the film sessions she is invisibly present, so you can focus on your family and meal. Victoire has a very pleasant way of giving feedback, she clearly mentions what you are already doing well, and gives tips on how to improve any lesser points. She has a good sense of what you and your child need.
Our daughter has been interested in fruit and vegetable snacks in additions to breastfeeding since 4 months. She tasted all the flavours we offered her, from vegetables to fruit. During the time she also continued to eat quite well, but as a parent you are sometimes feeling unsure whether you are doing well or whether it can be even better. Victoire made a number of videos during our daughter’s first year and discussed them with us. She gave us a lot of tips, but also let us know what went very well. Victoire also mentioned the small signals of the child and interactions between parent and child, which as a parent are not noticeable, but are also important in the behaviour of both child and parent. Thanks to the positive approach of Victoire, we have gained more self-confidence and are proud of our little girl who in the meantime eats everything that’s served.
We visited Victoire during the consultation hour to get advice about extra calorie intake for our 1 year old son who has underweight. She gave us very specific advice about snacks and the number of eating moments during the day. Our son is starting to gain weight and we continue with the advice Victoire gave us.
Our 2 years old daughter refused all food. Victoire immediately saw where the bottleneck was. With the help of a few video recordings and debriefings, this became clear to us. She gave us back the confidence and I feel secure again.
We didn’t know what to do for a while, when we came into contact with Victoire de Wild through contacts. Our toddler had gradually decided to stop eating, which led to stressful situations at the table. Victoire has given us some very useful and welcome tips online based on a recorded video. Of course we started working on this and little by little there is progress in his eating behaviour. Although it remains a “trial”, a toddler with his eating “moods”.
Our 1.5 year old son didn’t want to eat anything anymore. Victoire has helped us very well online during the first Lock down due to Covid-19. Her feedback has given us peace of mind that we’re on the right track. Her feedback helps a lot. Thank you very much for this.
