A great website is the "fed up" one. There's a book by Sue Dengate of the same name, it was my bible there for awhile. I still loosely follow an additive/colour free diet. Good luck getting your mum on board, I had huge trouble with my folks (who also mind my children).
As far as defiant behavior, we are having a bit of a resurgence here too. However my husband and I only separated 3 & 1/2 months ago. And he has said to me, "I'll feed em what I want, and buy em what I want", etc... Probably just to hurt me. Is causing a bit of trouble. Hopefully it will settle here.
Wish you luck.
It sounds like attention seeking behavior. How much time each day do you get to spend one on one with her? No distractions, no tv on etc. Perhaps setting some time aside each day that she knows she can count on without interruption. I have found in the past, when my kids are getting a bit much some time alone to do something together does wonderful things for their behavior smile
As for foods, try to stick to real food as much as possible (avoid packets) - fruit, veggies, meat, grains. Best of luck smile
Oh thank u so much I'll def check out that website might ben buy the book tomorrow just at wits ends!

Yeah we have one on one time without tv we have playdoh station and painting table and drawing we also play outside on swing and play games I try my best to spend time with her I believe the reason sea naughty then normal is food additives and stuff hope this website helps me thanks ao
Much for ur advice smile
Sounds like you are having some trying times in your house. I really feel for you, parenting is definitely the toughest job in the world, but can also be the most rewarding!

I don't know where you live, but there are definitely agencies and services out there for some advice. Are you with Plunket or some other well child service? If so, you could ring them and ask for your daughter to have her B4 School Check(free 4 year old health check), from this they will look at your daughter's health, developement, learning and behaviour and if any concerns are identified by yourself or the nurse they can give you advice and or refer you to an agency/service that can help.

There is also a programme called "The Incredible Years" which is an awesome (NZ)course that teaches parents strategies for dealing with difficult behaviour and about just how to parent in a happy healthy way. You can visit

Another great NZ resource for parents is the SKIP resources - you can access this on

Good luck with sorting your mum out with the food she is feeding your daughter, but you are so right in making changes to all that unhealthy food she is being feed - moderation is the key.
Best wishes - you sound like a neat mum, looking for the very best for your daughter.
