Season 3 Episode 8

17 October 2006 - 9:00pm on Channel 4

Seven year old Brandon is terrified of food, and mealtimes in the Bixley household have become a nightmare. Brandon has been avoiding most foods since a bout of gastric flu as a baby, but what started as fussy eating has become an obsessive fear that dominates family life. Supernanny Jo Frost quickly realises the problem is made worse by his bickering parents, and introduces the Little Chef Technique to turn around the boy’s relationship with food.
