Feeding challenges, including “picky eating”, are extremely stressful for parents, caregivers, and children. Learn how to reset the mealtime dynamic in order to support positive changes in your child’s eating habits and bring enjoyment back to the table. Join us for a 90-minute class to learn how to effectively manage mealtimes with children of any age, skill level, and temperament. Topics will include how to structure mealtimes and support participation in family mealtimes as well as strategies to encourage your child to explore new foods.
