food and fussiness

Is dinner a disaster? Breakfast a battle? It can be really frustrating when our children are picky eaters – but did you know that there are approaches that will take the pressure off and make mealtimes calm and enjoyable again?

That’s where we come in! This 2 hour workshop* is part of our ‘build your own’ course. It takes an in-depth look at the ‘whats’ and ‘whys’ of how children eat and provides strategies and techniques to help you manage tricky mealtimes.

You’ll learn about:


  • how children eat – what’s normal and why, including a look at brain development and toddler psychology
  • managing mealtimes – evidence-based, gentle strategies and techniques to calm and support your child
  • communication – how the way we communicate with and respond to our children can make a huge difference
  • why parenting matters – the science of support and nurture, and the powerful effect that responsive parenting can have on our children’s brains
  • myth-busting – don’t believe everything you’ve heard! We sift through common mealtime management strategies and look at the pros and cons
