Jasper McFlea will simply not eat his tea, no matter how hard everyone tries to make him!
Jasper and Ginger McFlea are twin brother and sister with wildly different tastes when it comes to food. While Ginger has a hearty appetite and eats almost everything, her brother Jasper refuses to eat anything except pasta. Jasper is also a budding cricketer and as the final match of the season gets closer, Ginger makes a dire prediction about Jasper s sporting future if he doesn t change his culinary ways. When he is taken for a medical check-up, Doctor McTavish diagnoses that Jasper suffers from a boring diet. Doctor McTavish then lets Jasper in on a simple yet little-known secret he doesn t have to eat his food, just taste it! From that moment on Jasper is transformed and, like his twin sister Ginger, develops a taste for a wide variety of healthy and nutritious food. And not only that, his game improves too! As well as being a hilariously entertaining read-out-loud story, Jasper McFlea will not Eat His Tea looks at the topic of food avoidance, a common and challenging childhood issue, which many children and their parents deal with all day, every day.
