It’s Not What Kids Eat, But How: Parent Coaching 101 

The struggle parents face in raising healthier eaters usually comes not from a knowledge gap, but rather challenges in parenting. The old tactics that have been passed down from generation-to-generation such as the “clean plate club”, food rewards, and forcing kids to eat their vegetables – don’t work. Parents need to know less about what kids should eat, and more about how they should eat. This session outlines the top 5 most effective feeding strategies parents can deploy in pregnancy, infancy, toddlerhood, preschool, school-age, and adolescence to raise healthy, active kids.
