Fussy eaters workshop:

Meal times are a common source of stress for parents. When a child refuses food or demands alternative meals, parents may become frustrated or concerned that their child is not eating enough. We will provide tips designed to help you manage meal times and to develop good eating behaviours. We focus on attention on equipping parents with healthy weaning and food choices knowledge to give children the best start in life. Mealtimes should be all about sharing, laughter, fun and love!
