Bringing Peace and Connection to Mealtimes: Tackle Picky Eating

Date(s) & Time:


Online - Pre-Recorded

One in ten American children eats such a limited variety or amount of food that it interferes with physical, social, and/or emotional development (“extreme” picky eating). With diagnoses and labels like “failure to thrive,” selective eating, ARFID (avoidant restrictive food intake disorder), sensory disorders and just plain picky—families are struggling. Foster and adopted children often face additional challenges and difficult beginnings. This workshop, presented by Dr. Katja Rowell, will help parents understand why children are struggling and importantly, share relationship-building strategies to move forward and support their child’s appetite and intake.

Intended for: Foster Parents, Adoptive Parents, Kinship Caregivers
