Event details

  • Does the idea of meal times fill you with dread?
  • Do you feel like a short-order cook? Creating several different meals for different members of the family?
  • Do you struggle to know what to cook and how to get your children to eat it?
  • Do you worry if your children are getting the right nutrients?
  • Do you struggle with fussy eating?

Raising children to eat well and enjoy food is often easier said than done. Information on what kids should eat is plentiful, but that doesn't always translate into what our little ones want to eat. Let alone a good vibe at the dinner table!

Let go of stress and worry at mealtimes and feed your children with confidence and ease. 

This 3-hour workshop will empower you. Giving you the confidence to meal plan like a boss, and create nourishing meals the whole family will enjoy. Raise children who eat well and have a positive relationship with food nurturing their body confidence and autonomy.

In this workshop, you'll leave feeling set up for success:

  • Feel confident knowing what and how to feed your children of all ages.
  • Know how to raise an adventurous eater that will willingly try and learn to enjoy what you prepare.
  • Learn how to raise a child who will delightfully devour fruit and veggies.
  • Start meal planning like a boss - quick nutritious meal ideas for busy parents that the whole family will love.
  • Nurture your child's relationship with food and create healthy eating habits that will last a lifetime.
  • Nurturing your child's body confidence and autonomy.
