Reaching the Promised Land: Harmonious and Healthy Family Meals
Do you wish you could get your children to eat more healthfully? Has your dinner table turned into a battle ground? Or is nobody coming to the dinner table at all? Have you given up trying to get your children to eat vegetables and home-cooked meals, to have peace again?
Learn a few simple, proven techniques for raising kids who willingly eat everything, without bribes, bargains, or begging.
Topics to be included in the interactive, fun seminar:
  • Key common mistakes to avoid if you want your child to eat healthfully now and for life.
  • How to practice “masterly inactivity”: taking it easy and doing less while achieving far more.
  • How to leverage children’s natural appetites to motivate them to want to eat what YOU want them to eat.
  • How to replace bad eating habits with good ones, without anyone feeling deprived.
  • How to have more fun in the process of feeding your family.
  • Identify which counterproductive tools you are using to try to make kids eat, and get equipped with the right tools, the ones that work.
  • How to cultivate the right atmosphere at your table so children both eat AND behave.
