About this Event

In this workshop Tracey Urquhart (Pediatric Occupational Therapist) will offer families valuable information about the eating habits of children, and ways to tell if their food fussiness is a normal response, or a sign of something more serious, such as an eating disorder. In addition, Tracey will offer participants practical tips for managing any stressful situations that may arise at mealtime, including picky eating, tantrums, sensory issues and food avoidance.

You may have heard that picky eating is just a normal part of childhood, and if you leave your child be, they'll grow out of it. Unfortunately, picky eating is anything but a simple problem, as it can be a sign of a number of issues, including potential eating disorders.

This session will help you uncover the root of your child's picky eating, addressing common mealtime conflicts and providing means to manage them. You will also learn how to spot signs of more significant eating issues in children, and what you can do to seek help. Join us to learn some useful strategies to help you guide your child towards enjoying a more varied, healthy diet.
