About this course
This course was designed for caregivers of toddlers ages 1 through 3 but is appropriate for caregivers of older infants and older children (through age 5); some nutritional considerations will be different, but the general ideas remain the same.
Feeding your toddler can be tough. We have been there, too. As moms ourselves, we know how hard it is when your child won't eat the foods you've prepared, or perhaps won't eat at all. The strategies provided in this course are not theoretical or unachievable - they're for real families with real toddlers, and we use them with our own families and clients every day. (As a bonus, they just happen to be evidence-based too.) This 18 lesson video and audio based course provides immediate resources and tools for you to start seeing a change in your child’s eating habits quickly! Feeding Littles: Toddlers includes everything you need to get meals and snacks back on track.
This is information you won't find online, folks. It's the best of feeding therapy, nutrition counseling, and creative meal planning combined - all at an affordable price of only $69. The best part is, the class never dies and your login never expires. You can access the class anytime, anywhere, for as long as you need too. It’s a great reference even once you complete the course!
