About This Workshop

Family meals are associated with school success, lower rates of teen problems and an assortment of positive outcomes. Yet, parents find it hard to keep consistent mealtimes and often mistakenly use feeding and mealtimes to try to enforce healthy eating through unhealthy means. This class will provide parents best practices for feeding children that support both health and family connections.

After this workshop, you will be able to:

  • Identify your goals
  • Recognize that feeding is parenting
  • Recognize the importance of meals
  • Identify healthy eating skills and apply strategies to support those
  • Apply conversation starters
  • Recognize special concerns about girls 
  • Identify your first action step
