Do these concerns sound familiar?

“He’s very picky.”
“Snacks in the car are the only way to keep her quiet.”
“He has to have a bottle of milk at bedtime or he won’t sleep.”
“She throws a tantrum if I don’t give her juice.”
“I just want him to eat.”

The Toddler years can be especially challenging feeding years. The child is growing up, using their voice, and developing so rapidly. Parents often have unrealistic ideas about what mealtime and feeding should be like with a toddler. Dr. Heinig will explain how we can influence caregiver thoughts and beliefs about toddler feeding and eating. By influencing these thoughts and beliefs, we can change caregiver actions and ultimately have a positive impact on a child’s nutritional intake!
