Are you or is the doctor concerned that your child's weight may be affecting his/her health? Are you worried about your child's eating habits but unsure where to begin? Have you started to dread mealtimes because your children are so picky?
Many parents feel paralyzed, fearing they will give their kids "food issues" by talking about food. It feels wrong, as a parent, to let your child go hungry, even as a result of being picky, so we bend over backwards to serve something they will eat. Sometimes children are teased at school about their weight, and parents don't want to make them feel worse. Some parents carry the guilt of knowing they have passed their poor eating habits onto their children.
Our approach takes everyone's needs into account. We carefully explain what the roles and responsibilities of parents and children are when it comes to eating and feeding. With a focus on health (not weight), we work with families to make the changes needed to get on the path to better eating without causing stress at mealtimes by getting buy-in from everyone in the household.
Our gentle approach helps parents address behaviors such as sneaking food, tantrums, food refusal, and POWER STRUGGLES at mealtimes. We will provide all the support you need to get everyone in the family on their way to healthier, sustainable habits, positive body image, and a healthy relationship with food.
