We add new workshops often, but if there is something specific you’d like learn about, just ask!

We are happy to answer all of your questions and can try to add new workshops if you, our beloved customer, want them!

Stop Picky Eating with Love, Patience and a Proven Approach This 90 minute workshop will be held at Over The Moon Parenting on (10/29, 6:30 -8:30 pm)

Open
When unaddressed, picky eating can create major stress within a family. Unfortunately, strategies commonly used to encourage healthy eating such as “no thank you bites” or “dinner before dessert” eventually backfire and have been shown to create pickier eaters! Join this informative discussion to learn an evidence-based approach to raising competent, healthy eaters. You’ll get tips to address common feeding challenges such as food refusals and children’s food demands and walk away with practical action steps to use at home. This workshop, led by Danielle Shea Tan, our functional family nutritionist and founder of Healthy Mamas for Happy Families, is sure to transform your meal times forever!
