Addressing Picky Eating 
First Saturday of the month*

Just about every child goes through some picky eating at one time or other. It can show up anywhere between 18 months and 6 years of age and is a part of childhood development. Still, picky eating can be quite frustrating for all involved. In this workshop, learn to keep mealtimes low stress while ensuring optimal nutrition for your little one. With a review of Ellyn Satter’s Division of Responsibility and a few other tips along the way, you will feel confident managing any feeding issues that your child throws your way. 

Starting Solids - The Feeding Journey That Lasts a Lifetime
Second Saturday of the month*

Starting solids is an exciting time for both baby and parent. The child’s world broadens with each new flavor and texture, while the parent can take joy in watching their little one discover this new world of solids. It is also a journey built upon trust between child and parent. Through the lens of Ellyn Satter’s Division of Responsibility, this workshop will walk through the how and when to introduce solids, how to safely introduce high allergen foods and which foods help build pincer grasp and promote chewing capability.

Allergies and Food Intolerances 
Third Saturday of the month

Allergies can be a scary part of the childhood feeding process and can lead to issues down the road such as picky eating. In this workshop, learn how to identify a food allergy vs.an intolerance and what to do about each of them. Education on food label reading and the hidden sources of the main six allergens of milk, wheat, eggs, soy, fish, shellfish and tree nuts will also be provided. Finally, we will discuss appropriate food substitutes to ensure optimal nutrition for your child.
