In the “Preventing Picky Eating” webinar, Dr. Nimali Fernando (a.k.a. Dr. Yum) discusses that feeding development is key in raising a healthy, happy eater. When parents and teachers understand how to proactively foster good feeding development, they may be helping to prevent some of the common ways that kids can become picky eaters later.
Dr. Fernando shares some of the free resources that help families and teachers overcome the barriers to eating well. Additionally, she shares how family meals shared in parallel with infants can help foster good feeding and provide a foundation of healthy eating habits. These amazing tips and resources can help to prevent picky eating!
