Confidently transform your picky child’s eating habits in 8 weeks and give them the healthy kick start they need!

(without bribing them with ice-cream, secretly sneaking greens into their smoothie or wanting to tear your hair out in frustration).

Let’s face it, you have no idea what to do about your picky eater, but you know you need some help.
Some REAL help.  And fast.

But you can barely find the time to shower, let alone plan out a research-backed, science-approved
plan to make them eat.

Plus, parenting a picky eater can be an isolating experience. (Considering your bathing schedule,
that’s not always a bad thing.)  

You would love to know that there are other mamas out there who are dealing with the same struggles, so you don’t feel so alone (or like such a failure!)

So, here’s what you’re dealing with…

  • You have a child who doesn’t love healthy food.  Or food in general (unless it’s breaded or contains chocolate).
  • You’re sneaking spinach into their food at every opportunity, simply to reassure yourself that they’re getting the nutrition they need. (Look kids – a blue squirrel!)
  • You’ve kind of given up on the idea of cooking one meal that everyone will eat. (So you’re either cooking two separate meals or eating chicken fingers with the kids. For the 3rd night in a row.)

Not to mention…

  • You’re overwhelmed with the MASSIVE amount of information and statistics out there when it comes to feeding your kids. Who has time to sort through all of that?
  • You’re sick of fluffy, impractical solutions that just aren’t realistic for your family.
  • You don’t want to spend every minute (of what little free time you have) trying to solve this problem. (Sorry kids, Netflix is calling.)

You just want answers. Some direction. A step-by-step plan that you know will produce results for your picky eater – without the serious time commitment. Is that too much to ask? (Okay, a trip to the Bahamas would be nice, but let’s not get carried away).

A fun and interactive online group coaching program for moms who want to shake things up at the dinner table.  Join the challenge and you will see some BIG changes in your picky eater in a SHORT period of time.

Think of it as a “mini-bootcamp”, designed to whip your kid’s habits into shape. (But with no yelling or push-ups required.)

Together, we’ll guide your picky eater through a series of “challenges’ that will change their attitude towards food and get them excited to come to the table.  And most importantly, you’ll learn how set your child up for a lifetime of healthy eating. (So you won’t be calling them when they’re 25 to make sure they’ve eaten their veggies.)


**This round of the 8-Week Picky Eater Reboot starts on October 11th**

What’s included?

This program is totally research based but delivered in a fun, easy to manage format so it doesn’t feel like school. (We’re talking 30 minutes in front of your computer per week – max!)

 All my advice is PRACTICAL and broken down into easy to digest steps (even for us with mommy-brain).

And the best part? You can do it from your own home, at your own pace, in your own pajamas. Yay!

This program contains TWO PARTS that make transforming your picky eater easy (you won’t need to invest hours a day in order to see results) and a TON of fun.

Part one: email challenges

Over the course of the 8 weeks, you’ll receive two e-mails per week, each containing:

  • A VIDEO, where you’ll learn a handy-dandy strategy to help encourage your child’s healthy eating habits.
  • A “try this at home” CHALLENGE where I’ll assign you some homework and a step-by-step plan on how to apply your new-found-knowledge.
  • A RESOURCE to enhance the effectiveness of the strategy (like a recipe, a worksheet, a checklist or another fun bonus!) 

This program is super easy to follow and totally self-paced.  You can watch the videos whenever and wherever you have time! (While you’re brushing your teeth?)

The strategies are broken up into FOUR modules. Here’s what we’ll cover:

Module 1: Setting the Foundation

We’ll set a basic framework for working with a picky eater. Learn the lingo and the best practices that will set your picky eater up for success.

Here are some of the things we’ll cover:

  • My #1 picky eating tip. And how it can transform mealtime in your house in just one day.
  • The 4 key strategies you need to implement with your child now, in order to set the foundation for healthy eating.
  • Are you saying this at the table? Why this one thing can totally derail healthy eating.
  • The importance of the “when, where and how” of feeding.  And how to leverage this knowledge at mealtime so that your child is more open to accepting foods.

Module 2: Your Child’s Palette

This will be all about getting your child to accept a wide variety of different foods. You’ll help them become comfortable, curious, and even excited about eating new things.

Here are some of the things we’ll cover:

  • The number of times you should expose a child to a new food. Hint: It’s more than you think!
  • How to serve food in a way that will increase the likelihood that your child will try it.
  • Why you’re serving the wrong thing for breakfast. And what to serve instead.
  • What to do when you child doesn’t like food that is “mixed together”. Yes, you can still make casseroles, soups and other one pot meals!

Module 3: Get Your Kids Involved & Make It Fun

Making the eating experience enjoyable and getting kids involved is key to developing a positive relationship with food!

Here are some of the things we’ll cover:

  • How to approach meals in a fun and interactive way. So that your child actually enjoys coming to the table. 
  • What should – and definitely should not! – be talked about during meals. 
  • Why making food visually appealing is important. And how to do it even if you aren’t Martha Stewart.
  • The one thing you can do before the meal that will drastically increase the chance that your child will eat it.

Module 4: Life Long Habits

When it comes to raising healthy eaters, there are no quick fixes. I’m not promising it’s gonna be easy.  BUT this module will focus on overcoming challenges now and as your child moves through various stages of life! (hello teenagers!)

Here are some of the things we’ll cover:

  • The likely cause of at least some of your child’s bad habits. You’ll wish you knew this sooner!
  • Dessert or no dessert? The most effective way to handle treats so that your child isn’t constantly begging for them.
  • How to manage outside influences. Because you can’t keep your child in a bubble!
  • How to make habits last. Because you can’t be there to shove broccoli down their throat forever.

Part two: group coaching

Getting help with your picky eater is nice.  But having other mamas that totally get what you’re dealing with along for the ride?  Well, that’s just plain FUN! (Who’s bringing the wine?)

The second component of the 8-Week Picky Eater Reboot is access to a special Facebook Group that only participants can access, so you can converse with other moms who are going through the program at the same time! You can ask questions, give advice, share what’s been working, and of course, VENT!  

I’ll be active in the group daily, facilitating discussion with relevant topics, providing extra tips, recipes and bonus videos, and tossing in my own experiences as well. 

And, of course, I’ll be answering ANY and ALL questions. (Seriously – ask me anything. Want to know my favourite colour?  I’ll tell ya!)

after the 8-week picky eater reboot…

  • You feel CONFIDENT that you’re feeding your child in a way that will set them up to be a healthy eating adolescent, and then adult.
  • Mealtimes will be CALM, inspiring and even FUN! Your children will actually look forward to meals. (What?) And you will look forward to incorporating the challenges into your week because they’re super fun for your kiddo!
  • Your child will become more CONSISTENT about eating. They’ll enjoy a variety of food and will be curious and maybe even adventurous about new foods! (Goodbye to only eating PB&J)
  • You’ll be KNOWLEDGEABLE about how to deal with picking eating problems as they arise. The course is given in bite-size pieces so it is manageable, and therefore retainable!
  • You’ll feel SUPPORTED. Even after the course, you’ll have access to the Facebook group if you ever need advice, support, or want to share a glass of wine over the interwebs.

YAY! SWEET, SWEET FREEDOM!

Sarah, I just wanted to thank you so much for your help with our picky eater. I’m noticing some real improvements with Olivia. She eagerly comes to the table and asks questions about what’s being offered. She sometimes chooses to try it and sometimes she doesn’t, but I will say that lately she has been choosing to try things more often. She even ate three whole green beans tonight, which is unreal for her. She’s never swallowed a green bean before! Thanks again for your sound advice and strategies! It’s working wonders in our household!

Leslie, mom to Olivia, age 4

BONUS 1: Nutrition for Kids 101 – Video
with Sarah Bester, Family Nutritionist & Picky Eating Coach

Worried about whether your picky eater is getting the vitamins and nutrients they need to thrive? In this video, Sarah, will walk you through the basics of making sure your child is getting the nutrition they need to thrive – picky or not! She’ll give you an overview of what macro and micro nutrients are most important for growth and brain development (and in what quantities), how to make sure your child is eating a balanced diet the promotes optimal health and how to tell if their limited diet is resulting in nutrient deficiencies.  When you’re confident that your kiddo is getting the nutrition they need, the easier it will be to stay relaxed as you work through the rest of the program.

BONUS 2: Mindfulness for Moms — Video + Mini-guide
with mindfulness expert Lacey Melguizo

Having a picky eater can feel overwhelming. But so can parenting (and life!) in general. And feelings of stress and overwhelm can definitely hinder your ability to remain calm, cool and collected when feeding your kiddo.  In this video Lacey Melguizo, founder and guide at Unscripted Heart, will explain how mindfulness based meditation can help ease and alleviate the stress that you feel during mealtime and transform it into connection, fun, and growth for you and your picky eater (think of it as “Mindfulness 101”.)  Lacey will also guide you through a couple of simple exercises to connect you to the importance of being present in each moment, and the “mindfulness mini-guide” will help keep you accountable!

BONUS 3: Picky Eater Reboot Workbook Summary

At the end of the program, you’ll receive a workbook that will summarize all the great lessons in the course so you’ll have easy access to them whenever you need a refresher!

***And a special DISCOUNT — Get 3 friends to join, and you will get a refund of 50% of your enrolment! (pretty sweet deal!)***

+ I will be releasing bonuses throughout the program!

FAQ’s

When does the program start?
This round of the program starts on Tuesday, October 11th!

What age is this program designed for?

The 8-Week Picky Eater Reboot is geared towards picky children between the ages of 2-10.

However, most of the strategies in the program can still be applied to feeding children outside this age range.

How do I know if my child is “picky” enough for the program?

If you or your child is experiencing any sort of stress at the dinner table, then something needs to change!

The 8-Week Picky Eater Reboot is designed for kids at all stages of the picky eating spectrum, and no matter where your child falls, you will see improvement by the end of the program.

Are you going to tell me WHAT to feed my child?

While  certain modules of the program will include a recipe to try, the focus of the program is developing healthy eating habits (and trying not to get too caught up in exactly what they are or are not eating.)

Every child will be in a different place on the spectrum of picky eating, and the goal of the program is to move each child forward in the number of foods and amount of variety they will accept.

(However, one of the included bonuses is a Nutrition 101 video, which will provide more detailed guidelines on what foods kids need in order to thrive!)

I will be away for 1 week during the program. Can I still participate?

You bet!

While the program is delivered over 8 weeks, you will have access to the videos forever so you can do the program at the pace that works for you!

 

How much time do I need to dedicate to the program each week?

The two weekly videos and e-mails will be short and sweet, so you will be in front of the computer for approximately 30 minutes per week (max!)

Implementing the strategies will depend on what stage you are at with your picky eater. However, most of the challenges are simple and you will be able to integrate them into your family’s routine at a pace that works for you.

Do I have to choose just one of my kids to participate in the reboot?

Nope!

I work with many families who have 2 or more picky kiddos in the house (often they learn bad habits from each other!)  Each e-mail will outline a strategy and a challenge for you to implement with the entire family, so all of your kids will show improvement in their relationship with food.

My child has a severe medical condition that is impacting their ability to eat. Is this program right for them?

While there are a number of underlying factors that can contribute the picky eating, any severe medical conditions should be dealt with prior to implementing a picky eating strategy.

If your child suffers from a severe medical condition that is impacting their ability to eat, my heart goes out to you and I recommend that you speak to your doctor before considering this program.

(Please note that kids with mild sensory or digestive issues would still benefit from this program.)

You’ll get 16 video challenges, 16 additional resources (recipes, worksheets, checklists etc), access to the private Facebook group, a workbook summary, all of the bonuses and more for only $297.
