Parents of young picky eaters can learn strategies and tips for making mealtimes happy times for the whole family.
Led by a registered dietitian and a pediatric occupational therapist, the Goodbye Mealtime Struggles workshop helps parents learn how to overcome mealtime conﬂicts with children from six months to ﬁve years old.
Over the course of the two-hour free workshop, discussions focus on the growing and developing eating skills of children, exploring the reasons behind mealtime struggles, the importance of setting a consistent mealtime routine, portion sizes and how to introduce healthy new foods.
Parents will learn a number of strategies to take to their own dinner tables and will also have the opportunity to connect with other parents facing similar mealtime challenges.
The workshop will be offered by Alberta Health Services in Red Deer on May 28 from 6 to 8 p.m. at Family Services of Central Alberta, 5409 50th Ave.
Parents can register by calling 403-309-8222, or online at www.fsca.ca.
Free childcare will be provided.
