Fussy kids will refuse to eat two meals a week, with two more thrown away practically untouched.

New research with parents who have children aged four to 16 – by meal kit company HelloFresh – has found three in five consider their child to be a fussy eater.

In fact, almost half of parents feel obliged to cook more than one different meal each night to keep everyone happy.
