Getting Messy With First Time Eaters, $15

About the Workshop: In this hour, we will talk through the evidence-based best practices for raising happy, healthy eaters. Feeding our children is, for many, a daunting task. But, with everything we have on our plate when it comes to taking care of our children, food should not create more anxiety and power struggles. And it doesn't have to! Through professional practice and personal experience, I have learned some basic truths about how, starting from the introduction of complementary foods, we can create an environment that helps our children develop a healthy attitude towards food and eating. Of course, that includes eating vegetables!
