Is your child a good eater? Are they fussy or picky? Are they getting the right nutrients?
Feeding kids can be stressful and worrying – especially if you have a fussy eater on your hands.
This workshop will teach you about the key nutrients your kids could be missing and show you how to manage a fussy eater. With tips and practical advice from dietitian and mum-of-two Sarah Keogh. Sarah is a CORU Registered Dietitian with 25 years’ experience working with children and adults to manage fussy eating and good nutrition. Sarah has a wealth of knowledge about nutrition and how to get children to eat. We are not promising miracles but there is usually a lot you can do to help your child have a healthy balanced diet – and help reduce mealtime stress. Join us for a lively talk with lots of time for questions.
