Raising a Healthy, Happy Eater: Picky eating, special needs, and more

This workshop discusses best feeding practices for young children that will help them grow to be happy, healthy eaters. We will discuss strategies to create a supportive eating environment for young children, how to support picky eaters in learning to eat new foods, and considerations for feeding children with special needs.
