Picky Eating Series: Next Level Strategies for Challenging Cases


We’ve all had that moment. The one where you’re completely stumped. When the basics don’t work. When the best practices aren’t enough. When a family says “I’ve already tried all those things”. Or worse yet, when a loving family is doing EVERYTHING wrong. Where do you start? How do the pros go about this? What tips and tricks do they have in their tool kit?

Well, we’ve got you covered. We locked in 4 power house guest speakers that do this day in and day out. They’ll not only share their years of experience with you, but their best tips. You know, the ones that actually work ;)

This is a 4-part webinar series. You’ll get 1 session each week starting May 13th, 2021. Each session is 1.5 hours and includes time for questions.

You can join us live or access the recordings later!
