Parents want their children to eat a healthy, balanced diet; kids seem to want only noodles and crackers. Parents want pleasant mealtimes; kids seem to want to play, run around, and disrupt everyone’s meal. Will your preschooler ever eat healthy foods? Can you have a calm dinner with young children? The answer to both questions is “Yes,” and this workshop will show you how.
Here are some things you’ll learn …
- What are the real food needs of children (and parents)
- How to stop fighting over food and turn conflict into cooperation
- Steps to successful family mealtimes
