Parents who let their kids become fussy eaters are 'morons and idiots', blasts Gino D'Acampo
GINO D’Acampo has branded parents who let their children become fussy eaters “morons and idiots”.
The TV chef insisted mums and dads can easily stop kids from developing bad eating habits.
All they have to do is train them like puppies — and served them food they shun at dinner time for breakfast the next day.
Gino, 45, and his wife Jessica have three children — Luciano, 19, Rocco, 16, plus nine-year-old daughter Mia.
The Italian explained: “When people talk to me about fussy children with food and ask me, ‘What do I think?’ I tell them there is no such a thing as a fussy child. There isn’t.
“But there is a thing of moron parenting. By moron, I mean idiots. A child doesn’t grow up fussy, it’s not possible. It’s the parents.
“They can’t be bothered to fight, they can’t be bothered to have the argument at the table, they can’t be bothered to see their children go to bed without having any food. I can.”
Gino claims his youngest Mia will be sent to her room without food if she does not eat everything on her plate.

He added on the Sweat, Snot and Tears podcast: “Don’t eat the ravioli, it’s fine. So Mia would be at the table not eating anything.
“If you’re not hungry because you aren’t eating the ravioli, that means you can’t eat anything.
“Tomorrow instead of milk and cornflakes, what she’s going to find on the table?
"The same ravioli that was there last night. You only have to do it once.
“Of course, they will eat it because what they don’t want is to have the same ravioli at dinner time.
“I’m not comparing a dog to a child, for God’s sake, but it’s the same as a when you have a little puppy.
“You only have to tell him off and pretend to smack him a couple of times not to do the wee on the floor.
“Eventually, he’s not going to do the wee on the floor, he’s going to go outside.”
