Parent Education Classes & Webinars
Introduction to Solids
Learn how to introduce solids to your baby and lay the foundation for life-long healthy eating habits. This class will provide an outline of the various approaches to introducing solids, important skills needed for feeding as well as related developmental milestones, and theories on managing mealtimes in the first two years of life and beyond. In this 90-minute class, you will learn how to create positive mealtimes, support the development of oral motor coordination, sensory processing and self-feeding skills, and manage some of the common challenges during this transition. This class is appropriate for expectant parents and parents of infants who will soon start or already have begun the transition to solids. Virtual classes only at this time.
Feeding challenges, including “picky eating”, are extremely stressful for parents, caregivers, and children. Learn how to reset the mealtime dynamic in order to support positive changes in your child’s eating habits and bring enjoyment back to the table. Join us for a 90-minute class to learn how to effectively manage mealtimes with children of any age, skill level, and temperament. Topics will include how to structure mealtimes and support participation in family mealtimes as well as strategies to encourage your child to explore new foods.
