Gino D'Acampo has branded parents with kids who are fussy eaters as "morons and idiots."
The Italian TV chef insists that parents can stop kids from becoming bad eaters easily.
The 45-year-old has said mums and dads should train their children like puppies and serve them food they refuse to eat at dinner time for breakfast the next day.
Gino and wife Jessica have three children, Luciano, 19, Rocco, 16 and nine-year-old daughter Mia.
The star 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."
The chef went on to explain on the Sweat, Snot and Tears podcast, how "parents can't be bothered."
He said: "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 explained how if his daughter Mia doesn't finish her food she will find it on the table for breakfast.
He added: “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 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.”
