April 27, 2017: Toddler Feeding – Raising Competent Eaters!
Thu, Apr 27, 2017, 6:00 PM
Feeding and enjoying meals with our children should be one of life’s pleasures.
If feeding your toddler is proving to be a challenge, or you would like guidance on how best to establish a strong foundation on which your child can build healthy lifelong eating habits, this session is for you. During our hour together you will have the opportunity to learn about and practice the “Division of Responsibility” in feeding so as to successfully feed your toddler in a developmentally appropriate way, correct and prevent common food battles, and raise competent eaters.
What does a toddler who is a “competent eater” look like?
They are positive about eating
They rely on internal cues of hunger and fullness to know how much to eat
They rely on variations in appetite to know what to eat
They enjoy many different foods
They can try new foods and learn to like them
They can politely turn down or ignore foods they do not want to eat
They can “make do” with less-than-favorite food
Both parents/caregivers of toddlers age 18 months- 3 years are encouraged to attend this session together, without your children.
Please be advised that this session will be billed through your insurance as a group nutritional consultation. If your policy does not offer nutritional benefits, the cost is $25 per family.
