Picky Eating Series 2022 - Looking for New Techniques?

A Webinar Series

Is this webinar series right for me?

We’ve all had that moment. The one where you’re completely stumped.

When the current tools you have don’t work.

When a family says “I’ve already tried all those things”.

When you have to overcome challenges that are beyond food.

When your tried and true interventions for young children simply don’t work in older kids.

Or worse yet, when there’s conflicting priorities between parents, children and health care professionals.

Where do you start? How do the pros go about this? What tips and tricks do they have in their tool kit to address pediatric feeding disorders?

Well, we’ve got you covered. We locked in 3 power house guest speakers that do this day in and day out. They’ll not only share their years of experience with you, but their best tips. You know, the ones that actually work ;)
