Goodbye Mealtime Struggles

Alberta Health Services offers a FREE workshop on mealtime struggles for parents of children 6 months to 5 years old. 

Join an introductory discussion with other parents, a pediatric Occupational Therapist (OT) and a Registered Dietitian (RD).

  • Learn more about how children grow and develop eating skills.
  • Explore the many reasons behind meal time struggles, and decide which first step strategies best fit your child and family.
  • Learn about setting a consistent routine, connecting with your child, introducing healthy new foods and appropriate portion sizes.

Options for follow-up by an OT or RD are reviewed at the workshop.

This workshop is suitable for parents of children who do not have complex medical/feeding concerns or have had extensive feeding intervention.

Registration is required. Childcare is available.
