Reduce the Picky Eating Struggle

It’s important to understand that picky eating is normal for young children. A child may eat a whole lot of one food one day, and the next day they are all about another food. Children use intuition to pick the foods that they are going to eat. Maggie explains this using research and how to minimize the eating struggles.

Expert Q&A – All Your Nutrition Questions Answered

There are so many questions when it comes to the foods we put into our bodies.

Where do I start? Should I follow a certain diet? Do I need to count calories? Are carbs bad? What and when should I eat around workouts? Should I eat breakfast? How important is “when” I eat? What foods can help my stress levels and sleep?

Join us as we chat with Katherine Andrew, RDN, and HER expert as she answers all of your most pressing nutrition-related questions.

This event is open to the public. Please RSVP via Eventbrite to receive the meeting room link and password 10 minutes prior to the scheduled start time.

Expert Q&A: Reduce the Picky Eating Struggle

Do you find yourself locked in a never-ending struggle with your toddler when mealtime rolls around? Do they fill up on snacks during the day and then frustratingly refuse to touch the meals you spent time and effort putting together? Does anything green on their plate cause a full-blown meltdown?

Fear not!

Reduce the Picky Eating Struggle is a one-hour class for parents with children aged 1-5 years old who are either curious about family nutrition, stressed about feeding their family, or concerned about a child’s picky eating habits.
